Laura Marling's new album Once I Was An Eagle is due out May 28th, and the songstress has recently released a few teasers to hint at what we can expect from her first new album since her stellar A Creature I Don't Know from 2011. The most recent is in the form of her new single, "Master Hunter" which you can listen to below. While Laura Marling typically gets categorized as a folk artist with comparisons to Joni Mitchell, she often hints at the rocker that lives within her, and "Master Hunter" gives us a glimpse of that harder driving side of her music. Its a faster tempo track with heavy drums and an apprehensive yet bad ass tone. "Where Can I Go" starts off as though its going to serve her softer side and then picks up, but still allows her vocals to remain center stage.

In addition, fans can check out her short film which encompasses four gorgeous new tracks (via Consequence of Sound), particularly the haunting first song showcased in the film, "Take the Night Off." Holy smokes.
