|Singles from Breathing Underwater|
Breathing Underwater is the third album and second international studio album by American singer Marié Digby. It was released in Japan on June 24, 2009 and was released on September 7, 2009 on Amazon and on September 15, 2009 in the US and worldwide.
On April 8, 2009, "Breathing Underwater" was leaked onto the internet, months prior to the new September release date.
"Yesterday, my album advance was sent only to the folks at my record label, radio DJ's and music supervisors. It is just inevitable that one of those people are going to try and make a buck or put up the music just for their own personal satisfaction. [...] If you can't afford 8 dollars for an album, then you can always support your favorite artists by even just purchasing a song or two! If an artist I love had made a new album and it was on the internet, I would probably want it too !! But I would undoubtedly go and buy the album with pride on the date of release as well.. but that's just me :)"
