Marina is back, minus the diamonds, and her first solo single in four years is absolutely worth the wait. "Handmade Heaven" is just that: looping, layered, ethereal pop that comes from a higher place. It's a little bit Lana, a little bit Madonna's "Ray of Light," but unmistakably still your favorite Welsh songstress joyfully entering her latest musical era.
The new track dropped last night, and its video premiered on YouTube at midday today. It sees Marina dance through a picturesque snowscape that gives way to colorful springtime flowers. She's wearing a cozy red puffer and matching lipstick — a cute beauty look to try this weekend.
"Handmade Heaven," written by Marina and produced by Joel Little, is the lead single from an as-yet-unnamed "contemporary pop" album that she told Dazed"isn't as conceptual" as her previous records. It's due for release sometime this year.
In the meantime, watch the video for "Handmade Heaven," below.
