Following recent leaks of new Marina And The Diamonds material, Marina Diamandis has written a blog post on her website about the issue.

"The more leaks that happen, the slower I go. As you can imagine, the thought of people invading my privacy and listening to half-assed unfinished songs that I write at 3am on a tour bus does not make me feel too relaxed or creative," she writes.

"I know that the intentions behind listening to leaked songs are innocent. I don't even mind if you listen to them! But just so you know, in doing so, you are now supporting the idea that nobody has the right to basic privacy. And by nobody, that means you too, somewhere down the line, later in your life when you will have forgotten about this blog post...

"But you need to know that the guys who are leaking my songs are grim and unworthy characters. We are feeding their egos and all the while, they are laughing at both you and I, whilst their sites get attention and they claim 'kudos' in hacker forums, as creativity grinds to an anxiety-ridden halt...

"I still believe that a concept and vision should be completed before one shares it with people. Not in weird, incoherent, diluted scraps... Haven't asked you for anything directly before but I would like to. I am asking for you to protect me. I rely on you guys heavily- and transparently- and I need your help. You're the only ones who control whether things stop or spread. I have the police involved, so if you know information about the people who are doing this, you can message me, if you'd like to. i have waxed lyrical to Warner about how incredible you are and I have faith in you on this."
