Martha Wainwright is beginning again.
The beguiling performer and songwriter returns with Love Will Be Reborn, out in August 2021. Not since 2012's Come Home To Mama has a Martha Wainwright record been so full of original written material. Wainwright's fifth studio album follows recent years of loneliness and clarity in search of optimism and joy.
Wainwright, the daughter of folk legends Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle and sister to Rufus Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche, wrote the first song - and what would become the title track - of the record a few years ago. It was a very dark time, she says, but the positivity and luminosity of "Love Will Be Reborn" signalled what was to come. The song simply poured out of her.
Much of Wainwright's songwriting since 2016's Goodnight City felt too raw. "There were several years where I picked up the guitar, and I was so, so sad and depressing. I would just put it down because I was terrible."
Before writing it out, or writing through it for catharsis, Wainwright had to live it. Album opener "Middle Of The Lake" reinforces Wainwright's path forward as she sings over voltaic chords and percussion, "I sing my songs of love and pain / Winds of change or simply singing, I'm singing in the rain."
Her work never shies away from an existential throbbing wound. "There are a couple major subjects on the record. From what I can tell, there's really dark and then light," she says. "It really is reflective of a very difficult period of divorce. Then, after that, it's meeting somebody new and amazing. And so you hear certain songs about this new love."
