Marina and the Diamonds singer Marina Diamandis has revealed how she has made her new album to cover up what she is really feeling. Marina admits that Adele’s album 21 is a great break up album but claims that she herself has taken a different approach.
Diamandis explained to the Daily Mail, “I’m putting on an aggressive front to hide my true feelings, but I’d hate guys to think I was intimidating. On my new songs, I wanted to flick the situation around. I didn’t want to come across as a victim. I’m not a bitch, but I wanted to expose that side of my character.”
She added, “I wanted to address the things that women don’t usually talk about. Nobody will admit to playing power games in relationships, but they do. When you mention heartbreak songs, people think of Adele singing Someone Like You. Her album, 21, was a brilliant break-up record.”
Marina continued, “Mine’s an ode to dysfunctional love. I wanted to create a cold, ruthless character who wasn’t vulnerable.” Marina and the Diamonds new single Primadonna is out on April 16, with her new album Electra Heart released on April 30.
