Song for Our Daughter is the seventh studio album by British singer-songwriter Laura Marling. It was released on 10 April 2020. It was co-produced by Marling with longtime collaborator Ethan Johns. The album's title is figurative, with Marling writing to a fictional daughter.
Song for Our Daughter was shortlisted for the 2020 Mercury Prize and was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.
Marling described the album as "stripped of everything that modernity and ownership does to it... essentially a piece of me". The songs are written to an imaginary child, with Marling stating it allowed her to offer her "all the confidences and affirmations I found so difficult to provide myself". Marling was inspired by Maya Angelou's book Letter to My Daughter (2009), which she read a few years before the album's release.
