Laura Marling will release the deeply personal album, 'Patterns in Repeat', on October 25.

The follow-up to 2020's 'Song For Our Daughter' was penned after the birth of her little girl in 2023, and "finds Laura reflecting on the patterns at play in the constellation of a family."

A press release continues: "The songs are grounded in a very specific and revelatory time in her life, diving deeper into her reckoning with the ideas and behaviours we endure through family over generations.

"It follows on from her acclaimed record about the "nonsensical experience of trauma and an enduring quest to understand what it is to be a woman in this society."

In a lengthy statement, the 34-year-old folk singer-songwriter said of the collection: “Over the course of nine months, I had happily prepared myself for the fact that my life as a songwriter would be put on hold while I adjusted to life as a new parent. How delighted then was I to discover that for the first few months of a baby's life, you can bounce them in a bouncer and play guitar all day. For the first time in my life, I was able to gaze into another human's eyes as I wrote. Of course, new parents feel like they discovered that feeling - one of the very finest that life has to offer, of looking into the eyes of your child and feeling the enormity of the picture as a whole, the enormity of a precarious life, celestial, fragile and extraordinary, taking its place among the comparatively banal constellation of a family. This banal constellation seems to have dominated the writing of Patterns in Repeat - the drama of the domestic sphere, the frail threads that bind a family together, the good intentions we hold onto for our progeny and the many and various ways they get lost in time. So much complexity in the banal, the caged, the everyday.

“Being as I am, 34 years old, now 15 years and 8 albums into a life in song, I am unable to escape the fact that each record has served as a time-stamped chapter of my life (though some have appeared more a premonition). Now, here we are, following a youth spent desperately trying to understand what it is to be a woman, I am at the brow of the hill, with an entirely new and enormous perspective surrounding me.”

The lead single, ‘Patterns’, is out now.

Other songs include: ‘Child of Mine’, ‘Your Girl’, ‘No One’s Gonna Love You Like I Can’, ‘The Shadows’, ‘Caroline’, ‘Looking Back’, ‘Lullaby’, and the album’s title track.

Laura is set to support the record by playing two intimate live residencies in London and New York.

She will make London’s Hackney Church her home on November 29, 30, 1 and 2. Laura will also play two nights in New York on November 11 and 12 at the legendary Bowery Ballroom.

Tickets for the live residency dates go on sale on July 19, 10am local time. Pre-order ‘Patterns in Repeat’ now via all major platforms and record stores.
