Laura Marling announces new 'Reversal Of The Muse' project

Despite releasing her latest album 'Short Movie' only last year, Laura Marling has chosen to a launch a new collaborative project titled 'Reversal Of The Muse, a series of podcasts, interviews and "exciting new collaborative studio recordings" exploring the "feminine presence in the studio".

Stating on her website, Marling explains, "Reversal Of The Muse began as conversations between friends about female creativity. In reversing the muse it became an experiment. As a small part of the global conversation about women in the arts, it became an obsession. It occurred to me that in 10 years of making records I had only come across two female engineers working in studios. Starting from my experience of being a woman I began to ask myself what difference it might have made had I had more women around, if any. I wanted to know why progress has been so slow in this area and what effect it would have on music."

The first two podcasts, featuring HAIM and Vanessa Parr, have already been posted and are available to stream in the players below.
