Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will ship in a single shipment after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are shipped based on the label’s street date and when the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date is often out of our control. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.

Description

Quite often these days, Laura Marling takes the bus from her home in North London halfway across the city to the British Library — a long journey, filled with many stops and much traffic, and one she has come to regard as an opportunity to begin writing a journal. “But I find it hard to think of myself as a subject,” she says. “I really struggle to write ‘I’.” 

The subject of who Laura Marling is might seem a simple one: six albums, Grammy nominations, Brit Awards, Mercury nods, a steady path from a childhood in Berkshire, via the noughties nu-folk scene, to an esteemed and familiar musical presence. Still, the peculiar truth after all this time, is that Laura Marling is perhaps not quite who you might think she is. 

She was just 18 when she released her debut album, Alas, I Cannot Swim, and the records that followed, from I Speak Because I Can in 2010, through to 2017’s Semper Femina, captured a young songwriter exploring both her craft and identity. 

Her voice — a supple, mesmerising thing, evolved too: richer, harder, smokier when called for, while the songs spoke of wisdom and worldliness and womanhood. But youthful success has a habit of crystallising its subjects, and for many, Marling remained forever the naive, clear-voiced folk singer of her earliest days. 

But she is 30 now, and her seventh album, Song For Our Daughter, finds her a wholly different proposition: an artist whose gifts are diverse and accomplished, her interests broad, her talent at its most powerful. She is today a quite singular voice in the recording industry.
