MARINA Is Back With a New Single, "Man's World," and Music Video
The track and visual are entirely female-produced.
Delivering on her promise to work with more female collaborators, MARINA has dropped a fitting — and catchy — new single, “Man’s World,” entirely produced by women. The singer, who previously went by Marina and the Diamonds, discovered that only two percent of music producers and three percent of engineers are women. In response, the artist said that she would commit to expanding representation in music.
Written solely by MARINA, produced by Grammy nominee Jenn Decilveo and engineered by Emily Lazar, the first-ever female Grammy winner for Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical), “Man’s World” recounts the double standards women face. Directed by Alexandra Gavillet, the song’s visual follows MARINA and a throng of dancers clad in draped dresses reminiscent of those in depictions of ancient Greek goddesses. “Burnt me at the stake/You thought I was a witch, centuries ago/Now you just call me a bitch,” MARINA sings, going on to deliver a closing chorus: “If you have a mother, daughter or a friend/Maybe it is time, time you comprehend/The world that you live in/Ain’t the same one as them/So don’t punish me ’cause I’m not a man.”
