LOVE+FEAR follows 2015’s FROOT, but technically marks the Welsh pop artist’s first major release under her new name. It was recorded in London, Sweden, and Los Angeles with a number of producers, such as Noonie Bao, Sam De Jong, Oscar Görres, Camille Purcell, Justin Parker, and Joe Janiak.
Although the double album is packaged as one singular release, each half tackles contrasting subjects, as a press statement elaborates:
“LOVE is filled with a longing to enjoy life and a desire to unite and empower, while FEAR sees MARINA delve into matters of purpose and insecurity, also touching on conversations surrounding gender inequality and more broadly, the abuse of power. LOVE+FEAR are declamations that showcase these polarising sides of human nature.”
The first half, LOVE, was surprise-released earlier this month, but today marks the first time the entire collection has been made available.
