Marina And The Diamonds ‘Primadonna’ Video

Marina and the Diamonds 'Electra Heart'

Marina and the Diamonds (Marina Diamandis) is out with the music video to her new single ‘Primadonna’, the first release from the Welsh singer-songwriter’s second studio album ‘Electra Heart’, out on Elektra Records this summer.

‘Electra Heart’ was written and recorded in London and Los Angeles over the last 18 months while on tour. Featuring new self-written tracks, Marina handpicked a close group of collaborators to write and produce with including Dr Luke, Rick Nowels, Liam Howe, Greg Kurstin and Diplo.

Marina said about the new album, “It’s an ode to dysfunctional love. I based the project around character types commonly found in love stories, film and theatre, usually ones associated with power and control in love, as opposed to weakness or defeat. I guess it was a way of dealing with the embarrassment that, for the first time in my life, I got ‘played’. Rejection is a universally embarrassing topic and ‘Electra Heart’ is my response to that. It is a frank album.”

Marina is now set to embark on a worldwide tour as the main support on Coldplay’s upcoming tour. U.S. dates below:

“We’re filming it in a house which is basically like a palace in West London. It’s really luxurious. The premise of the video is basically celebrating the idea of the American dream, where it’s come from,” the British pop singer explained. “We’re kind of referencing a lot of American characters which are stereotypes but are great stereotypes and really add to the culture. I just wanted to pick people who embodied and represent what the American dream is all about.”
