Speaking of the Mercury nod, Marling says: “Releasing the record as the world turned itself upside down felt quite disconcerting. It still feels odd now, but in what has been such an unusual year, this comes as a nice surprise. Am also very pleased to be joining the ‘four timers’ club.”
The new ‘Fortune’ video is a simple lyric video of a live performance of the track complete with a floral background – watch it below.
Giving ‘Song For Our Daughter’ a five-star review, NME wrote: “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. The album is a balm, Marling a lifeline – and a source of stability. We’re lucky to have her.”
Laura Marling recently played a livestreamed, ticketed gig from an empty Union Chapel in London for fans during lockdown. NME said that the event “took lockdown gigs to heavenly new heights,” adding: “More important than anything, though, the gig feels like an event, not an Instagram Live you tune into for five minutes before getting your ever-shortening attention span drawn away by something else.
“Actively putting money in the pockets of a working musician, it shows that live music can do better in the age of coronavirus – for fans, crew and musicians themselves.”
