Song For Our Daughter is out on April 10.
Laura Marling has revealed that she is pushing forward the release of her seventh solo album, Song For Our Daughter. The follow-up to 2017's Semper Femina is now arriving this Friday, April 10 – led by first single 'Held Down', out today.
The BRIT Award winner shared the news last night during her Isolation Guitar Tutorials on Instagram.
"In light of the change to all our circumstances, I saw no reason to hold back on something that, at the very least, might entertain, and at its best, provide some sense of union," she says in a statement about the release. "It’s strange to watch the facade of our daily lives dissolve away, leaving only the essentials; those we love and our worry for them. An album, stripped of everything that modernity and ownership does to it, is essentially a piece of me, and I’d like for you to have it. I’d like for you, perhaps, to hear a strange story about the fragmentary, nonsensical experience of trauma and an enduring quest to understand what it is to be a woman in this society."
