Marina & The Diamonds To Release 'Shampaign' as Fifth UK Single, Launch U.S. Tour Next Month
The single was written by Marina [Diamandis], Pascal Gabriel, and Liam Howe and produced by Gabriel, Howe and Richard Stannard. It's the follow up single to the Greg Kurstin-produced "Oh No!," which only managed to hit #36 on the UK singles chart. Not all that disappointing of a position if you consider first single "Mowgli's Road" and it's #147 position but at the same time, "Hollywood" made it all the way to #12. You win some, you lose some, I guess. The Family Jewels peaked at #5 on the UK Album Chart and #138 on the Billboard 200. Check her out as she makes her way to North America this fall. Unfortunately she's coming to Boston on September 1st...moving day for me. GRRRR! Oh well. Next time Marina. Next time.
