Exclusive: Laura Marling denies Wiley collaboration

Folk Darling Laura Marling told FFS that despite reports she has no plans to work with rapper Wiley.

In an interview with the Daily Star last week, the grime MC claimed he had been speaking to Laura about the possibility of a collaboration.

But when FFS asked Laura about the plans she said: “I have no idea where that’s come from! Somebody forwarded me the link to a story about it the other day.”

Laura Marling announces support for headline tour

Laura Marling’s people (yep, she has people, and a headquarters if her website is to be believed) have announced that Jay Jay Pistolet will be first support on her headline tour, apart from in Manchester where Peggy Sue and the Pictures will play.

Festival Review: End of the Road – Friday

For FFS, End of the Road kicked off with Peter and the Wolf and this reviewer was alone among her cohorts in enjoying his set, from his rambling tales about New York rich kids who walk across America to his story-telling old-school folk. He was swiftly followed by Laura Marling who, in the couple of months since FFS last saw her headline, has grown into her pageboy crop as well her stage persona. Her inter-track chat leaves you wanting for exactly the intimacy her songs deliver. My Manic and I was a particular highlight as was Cross Your Fingers b-side ‘Blackberry Stone’ which features the lyrics ‘I’m sorry I never did hold your hand as you were lowered’ a reference surely to the boy with black curly hair, Charlie Fink from Noah and the Whale. Marling was supported by her usual band, including drummer Marcus Mumford and bassist Ted Dwane from Mumford and Sons, whose were booked to play later in the evening, but cancelled because they had to fly to the US for the Marling/Flynn tour.
