Singer Laura Marling has revealed she micro-doses hallucinogenic magic mushrooms while studying for her masters degree – and she’s stocked up enough to last through lockdown.
As well as focusing on her singing career, Laura has been studying for a masters degree in psychoanalysis and had a study ritual down pre-lockdown.
She told Q magazine: ‘It’s difficult to not have the group conversation and it’s weird to not be going to the library and having that dedicated section of my day taken for that. But that’s fine.I’m coping with it.
‘I only recently started taking micro-doses of mushrooms and I’ve got this amazing routine: I get the bus from Stoke Newington, takes f**king forever, and I go to the British Library. Just to have some proper alone time.
‘Someone reminded me the other day that I haven’t micro-dosed because I haven’t been going out of the house.So maybe I need to get back on that.’
She admitted that she’s stocked up to get through lockdown, even if it gets extended for more months than planned.
Laura explained: ‘I do [have enough]. Though that’s a good question. The person who sends them to me is a yoga instructor, so I imagine she’s probably still be sending them out to people, so that will be fine.’
The singer released her latest album Song For Our Daughter early, after it was slated for a summer release, as she wasn’t tied to promoting it at a certain time.

She explained: ‘There’s never any great worry in the Laura Marling World that there is a time to be missed in releasing an album, because it’s not commercial at any time, and it’s not radio-friendly at any time.
‘So I’m sort of in a luxurious position to do that in some ways.It doesn’t really make a difference.’
