Laura Marling has announced that she’ll be sharing her highly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Song For Our Daughter’ later this week. As part of the announcement, Marling has released a new track called “Held Down.”
“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,” Marling explains. “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.”
Listen to “Held Down” below.
Song For Our Daughter is set for release on April 10th.
