Electra Heart, the follow-up to the successful Family Jewels album, is due for release on 30 April through 679/Atlantic.

It will be preceded by a single, Primadonna, on 16 April.

"It's an ode to dysfunctional love," said Diamandis. "I based the project around character types commonly found in love stories, film and theatre, usually ones associated with power and control in love, as opposed to weakness or defeat.

"I guess it was a way of dealing with the embarrassment that, for the first time in my life, I got 'played'. Rejection is a universally embarrassing topic and Electra Heart is my response to that. It is a frank album."
