MARINA Returns With ‘Purge The Poison’ And Announces New Album ‘Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land’ | Music News
With her brand new single “Purge The Poison”, MARINA has announced her fifth album Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land and it will be out on June 11. This album will be the follow-up to 2019’s Love+Fear.
For her self-written new album, MARINA has co-produced six tracks alongside songwriter and producer James Flanigan (Dua Lipa, Carly Rae Japsen) and GRAMMY award-nominated producer and multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Decilveo (Andra Day, Hinds).
On the album’s artwork, the singer looks like a Greek goddess and is throwing plants. Blue is the predominant color and reminds us a lot of the element water.
Her single “Purge The Poison” follows the single “Man’s World” that she released back in November. This song was written in reaction to the statistic that only two percent of producers and three percent of engineers across popular music are women.
The new single is a guitar-backed pop anthem hell-bent on righting society’s wrongs. The lyrics of the songs are taking down patriarchy, capitalism, as well as representation. She sings “I just want a world where I can see the feminine / we only make up one-quarter of the government.”
The new single came with a psychedelic music video, which was directed by Weird Life Films. We can see MARINA in a world of glitter and colors.
