Laura Marling has unveiled Wild Fire, the second track to be lifted from her forthcoming sixth studio album, Semper Femina.
Wild Fire follows the first single Soothing, whose intimate video introduced Laura behind the camera lens in her directorial debut, and sequels to the video will follow throughout the album’s unveiling.
Semper Femina will be released March 10 on Laura’s own label More Alarming Records via Kobalt Music Recordings. It was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Laura and US musician/producer Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Jim James).
Semper Femina is Laura’s sixth studio album in a little over nine years. It is a record that similarly addresses questions of how society views sexuality and gender but without seeking to provide definitive answers. It retains an openness to express and portray her own ‘voyage’ of self-discovery, but also to develop and learn as artist, performer, and as an individual over the course of her career.
Semper Femina is out March 10 on Marling’s own More Alarming Records. Pre-order here.
