Marina and the Diamonds' Neon Nature (Froot) tour featured artwork and animation by Gabriel Marques.

The Electra Heart era is introduced with her theme song (which isn't on the album but had a music video here :)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhHrrVlshQ8

After the line "Can we go back, go back to the start," Marina's animated image briefly changes to resemble Britney Spears in the Toxic video, with music to match (!) ... a nod to one of Electra Heart's influences ....

Non-album Electra Hearts songs also include EVOL, Lonely Hearts Club, Radioactive, and Buy the Stars (which sounds a bit like "Numb"). I feel like there's more I'm missing .... Living Dead, Sex Yeah (Free Sex), and How to be a Heartbreaker are only on some versions also. Gets a bit confusing, possibly due to her loss of creative control during this era.

The Other Foot/Just Desserts also came out of this era.
More mysteriously there was also Superhuman and (If It's) Worth It.

Oh, and if they count, the Su-Barbie-A intro (Valley of the Dolls), and The Archetypes (State of Dreaming).

Really worth compiling an extended playlist for this era, as the video releases sort of did.

When the album was called "Die Life," the tracks included:
Scab & Plaster
Starring Role
Power & Control
Living Dead (Possibly the title track "Die Life")
Sex Yeah
Miss Y
Jealousy

Family Jewels outtakes include Bad Kidz, The Family Jewels, Dirty Sheets, Space and the Woods, Starlight and Sinful. Also Like the Other Girls (which is similar to Scab & Plaster.)

Froot outtakes include "When You Take Away Control", "I'm Not Hungry Anymore" and "Saviour". (And "True Colors.")
