Following a three year hiatus from the music industry, MARINA released her album ‘LOVE + FEAR’ last April across all platforms.
MARINA used her break as a period of reflection and to rediscover her authentic self, as opposed to the artist and persona (‘and the Diamonds’) she had lived and breathed since signing her record deal at the age of 22.
MARINA said of the album ‘‘LOVE is filled with a longing to enjoy life and a desire for unity. FEAR explores subjects that have been a lot harder for me to work through and understand, such as purpose insecurity in love, and major shifts in our social conscience regarding the systematic misogyny and sexual abuse employed by powerful figures in the media. A companion to LOVE, these ideas cross to showcase and explore the polarising sides of human nature’’.
The album, which is described as a work of contemporary pop sound, has not been very well received by both critics and audiences. But the singer doesn’t want to let her latest project die so soon and continues to make it known. Recently, she has been on Jimmy Kimmel‘s live show presenting the song ‘Karma‘.
