Laura Marling wasn't just my favorite folk artist last year, she was my favorite album artist overall.

And she has a new album, "A Creature I Don't Know," coming out on Sept. 13. It was produced by a very respectable and repeated offender Ethan Johns!

The first song from that effort, "Sophia," has dropped.

"Where I've been lately is no concern of yours / Who's been touching my skin... tired-eyed am I today," she deliciously drips in that Joni/Jackson Brown drawl of hers, before the indie-pop bops in and blasts away the heat with a slow-blinking cool.

The British songwriter is touring in the U.S. again, in support, starting Sept. 17 through Sept. 28. See you at Webster, New Yorkers.
