Laura Marling reveals final Semper Femina preview "Nothing, Not Nearly"

03 March 2017, 12:55 | Written by Laurence Day

Laura Marling has shared "Nothing, Not Nearly", the Blake Mills-produced fourth preview of upcoming LP Semper Femina.

"Nothing, Not Nearly" follows "Soothing", "Wild Fire", and "Next Time".

The new numbers preview Marling's follow up to 2015 LP Short Movie. The new record, her sixth, is described as "intimately exploring themes of gender and sexuality," and comes after Marling's podcast series Reversal Of The Muse which explored the "feminine presence in the studio".

“I started out writing Semper Femina as if a man was writing about a woman," Marling says of the LP. "...and then I thought it’s not a man, it’s me - I don’t need to pretend it’s a man to justify the intimacy of the way I’m looking and feeling about women. It’s me looking specifically at women and feeling great empathy towards them and by proxy towards myself.”

Marling has lots of tour dates planned, including two stops at London's Roundhouse. Find out the full dates and ticket info.

Semper Femina will be released 10 March via her own More Alarming Records/Kobalt. Pre-order now.
