FROOT is the third studio album by Welsh singer and songwriter Marina Diamandis, professionally known as Marina and the Diamonds. It was originally scheduled to be released on 3 April 2015 by Neon Gold Records and Atlantic Records, although it was ultimately released on 13 March 2015 in reaction to unauthorised Internet leaks. Diamandis wrote all 12 tracks featured on the record by herself, and collaborated with producer David Kosten for their production.
Music critics commended the album's cohesive production; they further applauded Diamandis for her vocal delivery. As a critical success, it appeared on several critics' year end lists in late 2015. The record debuted at number 10 on the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 10,411 copies, and became her first top-10 album on the US Billboard 200 after charting at number eight with 46,000 album-equivalent units. The "Froot of the Month" campaign saw six songs ("Froot", "Happy", "Immortal", "I'm a Ruin", "Forget" and "Gold") released on a monthly basis in anticipation of the record. Froot has been promoted through a series of festival performances during the spring and summer; Diamandis is currently touring internationally with the accompanying Neon Nature Tour, with performances scheduled in North America and Europe from October 2015 to March 2016.
