Marshall explained that the album should have been released earlier but it was delayed due to the birth of his daughter. He also reveals how becoming a father helped him shake things up both musically and in his everyday routine.
“I should’ve had it all wrapped up before my daughter was born,” he explains. “It was just the easiness of it. There really is nothing else to do here, especially when it turns to winter. Everyone I know has jobs, whereas I’d sit on my arse all day sometimes not doing anything, then I’d go to the pub with them when they finished work. It became a bit habitual.
“Then, right in the middle of the record, this big change came in my life that I didn’t really comprehend initially. It was like, ‘Oh, I’d better get my s**t together!’”.
Man Alive! will be available on digital streaming platforms on February 21.
