LAURA MARLING SHARES THIRD TRACK FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM + THE SECOND IN A SERIES OF SELF-DIRECTED VIDEOS - WATCH "NEXT TIME" via NPR MUSIC
SIXTH STUDIO ALBUM, SEMPER FEMINA, RELEASED MARCH 10th
"The more I hear from Laura Marling's upcoming album, Semper Femina, the more I'm convinced, over a career of intimate and beautiful work, that it's the most inspired, beautiful and fully realized thing she's done. The latest cut she's sharing from the record is 'Next Time,' a perfectly rendered vignette that captures the moment when solitude can lead to enlightenment." - NPR
Laura Marling is very pleased to share a third track from her forthcoming album,Semper Femina.
"Next Time" follows "Soothing" and "Wild Fire" from Laura's sixth studio album, released on March 10th through her own More Alarming Records/Kobalt Music Recordings.
In unveiling "Next Time," Laura is also excited to share the track's beautifully intimate video, produced by the artist herself, and the second in a series of three.
Watch "Next Time" HERE
"Next Time" is the latest taster to another richly accomplished record by the peerless young British musician. As a body of work, Semper Femina follows a loose, lyrical thread of feminine exploration. It drops a light on an unspecified 'muse' of Laura's, and sweeps in and out of focus on how the acclaimed musician views femininity as the years pass. It's not a concept record per se, but that aforementioned thread unravels and reaffirms throughout the record's duration.
"Next Time" follows "Soothing" by introducing Laura as not only artist but as director too. A final self-produced video is due to be shared later in the Spring.
