Marie Davidson New Album : “Working Class Woman”

Marie Davidson announces ‘Work It’, taken from her forthcoming album “Working Class Woman” out on Ninja Tune on 5th October.

“You wanna know how I get away with everything? I work, all the fucking time.”


So declares Marie Davidson on the opening line of ‘Work It’, a track that probes her workaholic nature and that is, appropriately, unrelenting. It follows in the same darkly humorous tone of recent single ‘So Right’, released alongside a John Talabot remix, with Pitchfork describing it as "among her most searingly funny songs to date”, The Guardian praising her as "one of the biggest pleasures in contemporary electronic music”, and further plaudits coming from the likes of Resident Advisor, FACT, SPIN, The Quietus and many more.


“Working Class Woman” - set for release on 5th October on Ninja Tune - is the Montreal-based producer’s fourth and most self-reflective record: it’s a document of her state of mind, of operating within the spheres of dance music and club culture. Drawing on those experiences, as well as an array of writers, thinkers and filmmakers who’ve influenced her. She takes the same building blocks as before but knocks them together into something bolder. Crafting a more timeless sound than she’s done previously, it’s the logical next step for a career built on a far-reaching worldview.


Building on the dancefloor-minded trajectory charted by her previous record "Adieux Au Dancefloor” [Cititrax / Minimal Wave], which drew praise from the likes of Pitchfork (“a project that indicates exciting and near-exponential growth in her ability as a writer and producer”), The Fader and Resident Advisor, and opened up her sound to a new, wider audience, earning support from peers such as Nina Kraviz and Jessy Lanza. The record is informed by a career which has spanned an ambient-influenced album as Les Momies De Palerme for Montreal’s Constellation label (home to Godspeed! You Black Emperor); her synth-disco styled duo DKMD with David Kristian; and Essaie Pas, signed to DFA, and with whom she’s shaped minimal synth and "cyberpunk coldwave” (The Guardian) sounds into a fresh mould, in partnership with husband and collaborator Pierre Guerineau.


Listen to ‘Work It’ now, “Working Class Woman” is released on 5th October on Ninja Tune.
