November is shaping up to be very busy for Mollie Marriott. Not only is the singer releasing her debut album, she’s heading out on tour with Bad Touch.
“I’m really excited about the album,” she says of ‘Truth Is A Wolf’. “It features a lot of different styles and I think it really showcases my vocals. We had a lot of fun making the album and I hope people enjoy listening to it.
“I can’t wait to perform the songs when we tour with Bad Touch in the UK during November.”
The nationwide trek, which kicks off in Sheffield on 9 November, reaches London’s Islington Academy on 26 November. Tickets are available now.
Ahead of the tour and album release, the daughter of former Small Faces and Humble Pie singer/guitarist Steve Marriott has released the LP’s lead single, ‘Control’.
“‘Control’ is all about taking back control of my music,” she says. “It was important so this was the right single to start with. I’m in the driver’s seat going where I want to go. I co-wrote the song with Sam Tanner, lead vocalist with Brother Strut. We knew right from the beginning ‘Control’ was the perfect song to release as the first single from the new album.”
Other collaborators include Paul Weller, who appears on ‘King Of Hearts’ and the title track, which was written by Nashville-based songwriter Gary Nicholson.
“He was going to give it to Bonnie Raitt or Susan Tedeschi – two artists who are big influences to me,” Marriott. “I heard the demo, just wurli and vocals, and thought it summed up my album. It was the perfect title song.”
