MARINA – Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land (Download Free album Zip)
Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land is the upcoming fifth studio album by Welsh singer-songwriter Marina, set to be released on 11 June 2021, through Atlantic Records.
She began songwriting for the project in January 2020, around the time she released the soundtrack single “About Love”. The album is preceded by the release of four singles, “Man’s World”, “Purge the Poison”, the title track, and “Venus Fly Trap” with each one having a music video.
Following the release of her fourth studio album Love + Fear in 2019, Marina embarked on a multi-leg tour and released an acoustic companion extended play (EP), Love + Fear (Acoustic).
She also began work on a fifth studio album, and confirmed her plans via an Instagram post, in January 2020. The news was followed up by the release of the soundtrack single “About Love” in February, which was featured on the soundtrack to the American romantic comedy film To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (2020).
During songwriting sessions for Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land, Marina was motivated by the mistreatment of women and LGBT individuals throughout history, and gathered further inspiration from the Salem witch trials.
The album’s title track is a pop rock and disco song with a “cinematic guitar riff”. Danielle Chelosky, a writer for Stereogum, compared it to Britney Spears’ 2008 single “Womanizer”.”Man’s World” was described as a dreamy and melodic alternative pop anthem.
Backed by a piano performance from Marina, she criticises the behaviour of men towards women and minorities. “Purge the Poison” was called “an Earth Day anthem of sorts” by Billboard’s Gab Ginsberg, due to its lyrics that speak of climate change.
