Its loose lyrical thread strings together her keen, freshly observed take on womanhood,and what Laura describes as a particularly "masculine time in her life".
Semper Femina is Laura's sixth studio album in a little over nine years. It is a record that similarly addresses questions of how society views sexuality and gender but without seeking to provide definitive answers.
It retains an openness to express and portray her own 'voyage' of self-discovery, but also to develop and learn as artist, performer, and as an individual over the course of her career.
Laura said: "I don't need to pretend it's a man to justify the intimacy, or the way I"m looking and feeling about women.
"It's me looking specifically at women and feeling great empathy towards them, and by proxy, towards myself".

The announcement of Semper Femina follows the success of Laura"s recent Podcast series, Reversal of the Muse.
As an exploration of femininity in creativity, the collaborative project opened up an important conversation around whether the lack of feminine presence in the studio environment would ultimately make any difference at all to the creative outcome.
With no ulterior motives, nor any pre-conceived expectations, ROTM was as much about the conversation created than expecting a conclusive answer. Guests included Haim, Karen Elson, Vanessa Parr, Dolly Parton, Shura, and Emmylou Harris.
It was back in October 2015, that Marling announced a short Tour de Ville through the US, where she would be previewing material from the aforementioned forthcoming Semper Femina.
This was a similar technique she'd used before to debut work in progress:
"I had done the three albums and toured them back-to-back. I decided to do a tour alone, a U-shape of the States, just me and a guitar.
"I was deciding when and where to go. No Holiday Inns on the side of the freeway in Idaho. I picked up friends on the way, then a boy, and we ended up moving to LA together. I had absolutely nothing, and it felt amazing; a completely fresh start."
