Laura Marling has already shared two tracks off her forthcoming album Once I Was An Eagle: the melancholic “Where Can I Go?” and the fiery “Master Hunter”. Now, through a new short film titled “When Brave Bird Saved”, the UK singer-songwriter previews four more: “Take The Night Off”, “I Was An Eagle”, “You Know”, and “Breathe”.
Directors Fred & Nick had this to say of the nearly 19-minute piece:
“When Brave Bird Saved” is an introduction to a visual journey directly inspired, informed, and narrated by the first four tracks of Once I Was An Eagle. Having collaborated with Laura over the last four years, the ambition and scope of this film marks an exciting new direction for us and we were given total freedom to focus strongly on the distinct journey of the four tracks.”

Once I Was An Eagle is due out on May 28th via Ribbon Music. Pre-order it here.
