Update video link



Laura Marling has unveiled "Wild Fire," from her forthcoming sixth studio album, Semper Femina. Semper Femina is released on March 10 through More Alarming Records/Kobalt Music Recordings. Laura is a musical guest on esteemed traveling radio program A Prairie Home Companion on Saturday January 14th – hosted by Chris Thile – will be broadcast live between 5pm – 7pm from The Symphony Theater in Chicago. Laura joins Chris, Andrew Bird and Beth Stelling on the bill. 26 year old English singer-songwriter Laura Marling’s latest track is "Wild Fire." Taken from her forthcoming album Semper Femina, it follows a loose, lyrical thread of feminine exploration. It drops a light on an unspecified ‘muse’ of Laura’s, and sweeps in and out of focus on how the acclaimed musician views femininity as the years pass. It’s not a concept record per se, but that aforementioned thread unravels and reaffirms throughout the record’s duration. "Wild Fire" follows the announce track "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. Laura was only 20 years old when, in 2011, she was awarded the UK’s Grammy equivalent BRIT Award for Best British Solo Female Artist. Recording since the age of 16, Semper Femina is her sixth album. A rich and enriching listen, Semper Femina is a typically mature and raw listen by one of our most talented and prolific young musicians of a generation. Following the release of Semper Femina, Laura hits the road in support of it. Watch this space for North American live shows – to be announced soon.

Song Lyrics:

You wanna get high
Yeah overcome those desires before you come to me
I think your mama's kinda sad
And your papa's kinda mean
I can take it all away
You can stop playing that shi* out on me

She keeps a pen behind her ear
Because she's got something she really really needs to say
She puts it in a notepad
She's gonna write a book someday

Of course the only part that I want to read
Is about her time spent with me
Wouldn't you die to know how you seem
Are you getting away with who you're trying to be?

Of course there's things upon the Earth that we must really try to defend
You lonely beast
You kind heart
Something we can all trend
I do it all for her, for free
I need nothing back for me
There's no sweeter deed maybe
Than to love something enough to want to have to get free

Is there something on your mind?
Something you need to get by?
D you cry sometimes?
Do you cry sometimes?

You always say you love me most
But I don't know I'm being seen
Maybe someday when God takes me away
I'll understand what the f**k that means
I just know your mama's kinda sad
And your papa's kinda mean
I can take it all away
You could stop playing that shi* out on me

Is there something on your mind?
Something you need to get by?
D you cry sometimes?
Do you cry sometimes?

I know your mama's kinda sad
I know your papa's kinda mean
I can take it all away
And you can stop playing that shi* out on me
