Charlotte Martin EP

(PR) Charlotte Martin has just completed preparing her new studio EP, Orphans, due digitally November 11 on Test-Drive Records. This eight-song collection of masters and outtakes spans Martin's 10-year career.

Selections include fan favorites "The Stalker Song" and "Snowflakes," as well as brand new, never released material recorded in early 2008. Martin partnered with long time collaborator and husband, Ken Andrews, and friend Tommy Walter (Eels, Abandoned Pools) to remix and re-master these recordings.

"I am happy some lost songs from the One Girl Army, On Your Shore and Stromata recording sessions are finally finding a home on their own EP. This is a true collector's piece I want everyone to hear," Martin explains.

Tracks such as "Is This Called Desire" and "Outerspace," originated back in 2006, when Walter and Martin worked on tracks for a duo project called "Exceptional Birds of Flight." They steer away from Martin's familiar keyboard-driven sound and explore electronics, accompanied by vocals that at times may recall The Cocteau Twins. Other outtakes, such as "Galaxies" and "Habit," stay more true to Martin's classic piano-based lullabies, brimming with raw emotion and melancholy melodies.

Orphans will be available via Martin's official store powered by iTunes, CD Baby, Musictoday, eMusic, and most other digital retailers.

Currently, Martin is writing and recording her fourth full-length album and plans to return to the touring scene in early 2009.
