In a bold marketing plan defying surprise, Stuart Murdoch has just posted a brand new song on the God Help The Girl site. It was recorded last weekend.
It’s the b-side from the Funny Little Frog 7″ that is part of the Subscription which you can order here.
The song is called “Mary’s Market” and features a familiar friend on lead vocals. Here’s what Stuart has to say about it:
We have a new track for you. It’s called ‘Mary’s Market’, and we recorded it last weekend. It’s going to be the B-side to the ‘Funny Little Frog’ single, but we thought we’d let you hear it since the weather’s nice here, and we’re in a good mood, and it seems to match the weather!
The picture to go with the track features the stylish Scottish BBC newsreader, Mary Marquis. When I was writing the song, I wrote the lines
You showed me yesterday’s dress
The one you nicked from Mary’s Market
And it kind of sounded like Mary Marquis, so she gets to go on the cover! It kind of amuses me to think of the girl in the song nicking a frock from Mary Marquis, as it would probably be a frock worth nicking! (As you can see from the picture)
