Billie Marten

Drop Cherries: CD


Release date: 7 April, 2023

Billie Marten's fourth album 'Drop Cherries', released April 2023. Recorded entirely on tape in Somerset and Wales in the previous summer, 'Drop Cherries' marks the very first time that Billie Marten has both written and co-produced (with Dom Monks) one of her records; following critically-lauded 2021 album 'Flora Fauna', 'Feeding Seahorses by Hand' (2019) and 'Writing of Blues and Yellows' (2016). The title is taken from a tale she heard from a friend just before she was starting to create songs for the album, and the title track came soon after. It's a metaphor where the gift of cherries stands for offering someone your love; doing anything you can to make them happy. 'Dropping cherries,' she begins, 'is such a strong, visceral image that I tried to channel throughout recording in Somerset and Wales, to capture the vibrancy, unpredictability, and occasional chaos one experiences within a relationship'.
