Mary Epworth has announced that her debut album Dream Life will be available come 18th June 2012. Released on Hand Of Glory / ADA, the record couldn't come at a better time for the singer-songwriter: she's garnered attention from the likes of 6 Music, Radio One and Radio Two; has been featured as a Record Collector name to watch for 2012 and has recently been confirmed to play Ladyfest and Bestival, too.

The album was recorded out in the wild in a barn in Norfolk during deep midwinter with producer Will Twynam, as well as above a massage parlour (of all places!) in Berlin. Sunshine enthusiasts need not to worry though: despite these dark and gloomy connotations, the record was mixed in sunny Los Angeles with Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Beechwood Sparks) and Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, These New Puritans) at the wheel.

Before 'Dream Life' drops though, you'll be able to pick up a new single from Mary ('Long Gone') on 11th June.
