Song for Our Daughter is the seventh studio album by singer-songwriter Laura Marling, and it released on April 10. The record was co-produced by Marling with longtime collaborator Ethan Johns. And before you get too curious: the album's title is figurative, with Marling writing to a fictional daughter.

Marling joined The Current from her home in London to perform three selections from the album.

Songs Performed


"Only the Strong Survive"
"The End Of The Affair"
"Held Down"
All songs from Laura Marling's 2020 release, Songs For Our Daughter, available on Chrysalis Records.
