What do we have here then? It’s the brand spanking new video to “Lies”. The Electra Heart story seems never ending and if you recall I was about to stop posting EH related stuff in May OF LAST YEAR – that’s how long this campaign’s been running. It’s actually quite amazing; new videos keep popping up even though the album itself was released ages ago. Someone somewhere said this was Electra Hearts “Dubstep track”, weeeeeeeeeeeeell, like the more laid back Dubstep of old – I’ll give you that, “someone somewhere”, but it ain’t Noisia, that’s for sure. I think Dr. Luke, Diplo and Cirkut produced this track just right; contemporary (2012) and not over the top at all. My EH posts will continue as there are two more parts TBA. Love the video.
And then there’s THIS:
No date yet (that I know of) but it was posted on Twitter the other day. Neon Gold, the label where “Obsessions” and “The Crown Jewels EP” were released is taking care of this one as well. 11 unreleased tracks spanning as far back as 2008, that’s what we can expect. Now, there are older tracks floating about on the Sea of Webs – demo stuff with tracks like “Philosopher My Arse” and “Guilty” among others. It would be nice to hear a few scrapped tracks that still went through a full production cycle but “never made it”. That and a few tracks with just Marina and a piano, please. 11 remixes would be awful, please don’t do that! Follow the Twitter account Eleven Diamonds for more info, just says “COMING SOON” at the moment. There’s also this site that’s nothing more than the pic above and the option to join the mailing list. I’ll suggest you do just that. OK?
UPDATE July 20, 2013:
Eleven Diamonds is nay a musical project. What the hell? In this case “nay” means “not”. All my hopes that I put into text above this update are out the window. Like Alan Partridge said: One yank, all gone. I wonder what this is about then, if it’s not music. It’s a lousy name for a perfume. Short films, a clothing line, an actual auction where Marina will sell the 11 diamonds she inherited from her grandmother? If it’s NOT related to music then why is it going to be released by a record label? A boxed DVD collection of music videos? Who uses DVDs these days? iPhone app?! QUESTIONS!
Time will tell…
UPDATE July 29, 2013:
Clothes. It was clothes. Not music. I wanted music. Instead: Three T-shirts and a tote bag… Here’s the first email via the mailing list:
So. Eleven Diamonds is a new fashion venture I’m undertaking with some help from my friends at Neon Gold Records. We have big plans! But for now… We present our first ever line of T-shirts, featuring collaborations with DEER DANA, Francisco Canton and Yippy Whippy.

The collection will be released on the 11th August and will ship worldwide. Each item is available in a limited edition run of 1000 worldwide and will not be re-pressed upon selling out.
I think I posted the link to the site (store) earlier in this post but here it is again in case you just read this last update: 11 Diamonds Store. There you go.
