Alas, I Cannot Swim is the first album by Laura Marling, released in 2008 on Virgin. The album is produced Noah & The Whale’s Charlie Fink, who was Laura’s boyfriend at that time. Alas, I Cannot Swim Q&A. Producers Charlie Fink. Writers Laura Marling. Backup Vocals Marcus Mumford.

Her debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim was released on 4 February 2008, and was nominated for the 2008 Mercury Prize. The album, as well as subsequent singles, were released on Virgin Records  . Following the release of the album, Marling revealed that she only listened to "music made between 1969 and 1972" during the songwriting process for the album, and described it as an era when "guitar was becoming a kind of masculine extension".

Alas I Cannot Swim is an album that embraces the elegiac sensibilities of traditional folk and forward thinking contemporary folk music. Many have likened Marling to Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and Sandy Denny, but Marling's sound is every bit her own. On opening track Ghosts she sounds assured, her voice arresting and powerful. Lover please do not fall to your knees, it's not like I believe in everlasting love", Marling sings, with a conviction beyond her years. The Reading-based singer's vocals are stunning on Old Stone – a shiveringly affecting, dignified and rousing.

The fact that bracing Brit-folk singer/songwriter Laura Marling was just 17 when she recorded the Mercury Prize-nominated Alas, I Cannot Swim has become every much the bit of biographical shorthand as mentioning Lily Allen's famous dad or Robyn's late-90s . It may seem at first unfair given how many pubescent rockers come down the pike, but artists who mine a folkier, more personal vein, like Marling or Conor Oberst or Patrick Wolf, do tend to open themselves up to greater scrutiny- yet are also more readily rewarded with touts of prodigal genius. When such striving stumbles, we call it "precociousness" and assume the neophyte will continue to hone his or her introspective powers with each passing year.
