Daphne Lee Martin - "I'd Take a Bullet for You" (audio) (premiere)

The singer-songwriter draws inspiration from Bonnie and Clyde on her newest track.

The forthcoming new album Fall on Your Sword by Connecticut singer-songwriter Daphne Lee Martin is a wonderfully eclectic collection of songs inspired by stories we've heard as youngsters, from fairy tales, to cautionary tales, to pop culture events from the 20th century. The lavish track "I'd Take a Bullet for You" draws its inspiration from one of the most romanticized couples of the past century.

""Who doesn't want to wake up next to someone who drives them wild?" Martin says. "Sometimes at any cost. There's a reason we're fascinated by the story of Bonnie Parker & Clyde Barrow, we all kind of want to be them just a little bit. Go crazy, take what we want, and make love on the run."

Fall on Your Sword will be released 2 October on Telegraph Records.

One year since the release of Morcheeba's Blaze Away, the band unleash a special edition full of remixes, which leads to questions of how their process works, how some songs got remixes and others didn't, and what the next 20 years of Morcheeba look like.
