ANCIENT DREAMS IN A MODERN LAND marks MARINA’s fifth studio album and first full-length release since 2019’s acclaimed LOVE + FEAR. The self-penned new album also sees MARINA co-producing five tracks alongside songwriter/producer James Flanigan (Dua Lipa, Carly Rae Jepsen, Hayley Kiyoko) and GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer/multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Decilveo (Andra Day, Bat For Lashes, Hinds), and includes the already released track, “Man’s World.”
Written solely by MARINA in reaction to the startling statistics that only two percent of producers and three percent of engineers across popular music are women, “Man’s World” was produced by Decilveo and co-produced by MARINA, and engineered by the first-ever female GRAMMY® Award winner for “Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical,” Emily Lazar (Sia, Clairo, Haim). The song and accompanying video were met by high praise from a wide range of international media outlets, with Billboard declaring it among “MARINA’s most important work to date.” “Man’s World” is “a laser sharp takedown of the patriarchy,” raved Refinery29, while BlackBook applauded the track as “just the sort of inspiration we need right now.”
