new album from Laura Marling - Song for Our Daughter
Originally planned for later in the year, it's out this Friday, Apr 10

She wrote this on her website:
My new album ĎSong For Our Daughterí is coming out this week, ahead of our planned schedule. 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. Itís 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 Iíd like for you to have it. Iíd 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. When I listen back to it now, it makes more sense to me than when I wrote it. My writing, as ever, was months, years, in front of my conscious mind. It was there all along, guiding me gently through the chaos of living. And that, in itself, describes the sentiment of the album - how would I guide my daughter, arm her and prepare her for life and all of its nuance? Iím older now, old enough to have a daughter of my own, and I feel acutely the responsibility to defend The Girl. The Girl that might be lost, torn from innocence prematurely or unwittingly fragmented by forces that dominate society. I want to stand behind her and whisper in her ear all the confidences and affirmations I had found so difficult to provide myself. This album is that strange whisper; a little distorted, a little out of sequence, such is life. I want you to have it.

think this is gonna be the first single, this is a live version from a few weeks ago, sounds beautiful live!

I was OBSESSED with her debut but less so with the albums that followed honestly. Looking forward to having a listen to this later in the week!

same, I loved her debut Alas I Cannot Swim, and it's the only one I bought on physical format... Ghosts, My Manic & I, Cross your Fingers, Night Terror,... so many great songs... album 2 had some good songs too like What He Wrote, but every album she released afterwards was a bit less interesting and she kinda lost me as a fan...
but then I saw some live YT of recent songs and seemed very good, so Im giving her another chance smile.gif

Yeh the second album was the one I loved. Everything else was a bit boring.
