At just 21 years old, English folk singer Laura Marling has already released her third full-length album, "A Creature I Don't Know." With her first two albums nominated for the Mercury Prize, she's already accomplished a lot at a young age.

Her latest album centers on a theme of dark and light, right and wrong while attempting to answer the age-old questions: Why are we here? What is our purpose?
