Song For Our Daughter is the seventh studio album by British singer songwriter Laura Marling, released in April 2020 via Chrysalis Records.

Laura Marling’s exquisite seventh studio album Song For Our Daughter arrives almost without preamble or warning in the midst of uncharted global chaos, and yet instantly and tenderly offers a sense of purpose, clarity and calm. As a balm for the soul, this full-blooded new collection could be posited as Laura’s richest to date, but in truth it’s another incredibly fine record by a British artist who rarely strays from delivering incredibly fine records.

Taking much of the production reins herself, alongside long-time collaborators Ethan Johns and Dom Monks, Laura has layered up lush string arrangements and a broad sense of scale to these songs without losing any of the intimacy or reverence we’ve come to anticipate and almost take for granted from her throughout the past decade.

The album's title is figurative, with Marling writing to a fictional daughter. Song For Our Daughter was nominated for the 2020 Mercury Prize.

Marling described the album as "stripped of everything that modernity and ownership does to it... essentially a piece of me". Marling was inspired by Maya Angelou's book Letter to My Daughter (2009), which she read a few years before the album's release.

Song For Our Daughter was met with widespread critical acclaim. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 from reviews from professional critics, the album received a score of 89, based on 19 reviews, which means it has received “Universal Acclaim”.

This album is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeve, pressed in Europe via Chrysalis Records.
