Meanwhile, Laura Marling has returned today with her seventh album ‘Song For Our Daughter’. In a five-star review, NME said: “Album seven is a piece of a person we are familiar with. It might be less folky than her previous work, more guided by vital words than percussive rhythm, but it still feels cohesive and like a safe haven.
