Marina Returns With 'Man's World Empress Of Remix'

Neon Gold/Atlantic recording artist MARINA has announced today's premiere of "Man's World Empress Of Remix (Feat. Pabllo Vittar)," available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. The track unites MARINA with a pair of truly remarkable collaborators in acclaimed singer-songwriter-producer Empress Of and award-winning Brazilian drag queen superstar Pabllo Vittar.

Hailed by Billboard as "some of MARINA's most important work to date," the original version of "Man's World" arrived last year amidst wide-ranging critical applause. The track - available for streaming and download HERE - was written solely by MARINA, produced by GRAMMY® Award nominee Jennifer Decilveo (Bat For Lashes, Hinds, Demi Lovato), co-produced by MARINA and engineered by the first-ever female GRAMMY® Award winner for "Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical," Emily Lazar (Sia, Clairo, Haim). In addition, the track's companion video and photography was led by acclaimed filmmaker/photographers Alexandra Gavillet and Coughs; acclaimed by Vogue as "one of the most compelling clips in (MARINA's) decade-plus career," the "Man's World" video is streaming now at YouTube HERE.

"Man's World" was received with high praise in a wide range of media outlets. One of the "Best Songs of the Week," noted Variety, while E! News praised "Man's World" as "an ethereal pop song all about her extreme dissatisfaction with the patriarchy. It's heavy stuff that goes down gently thanks to MARINA's unrelenting Midas touch." "(MARINA) shares a laser sharp takedown of the patriarchy," wrote Refinery 29, "offering up a poetic critique of society's deep history of misogyny and homophobia."

Under the name Empress Of, Honduran-American songwriter, musician and producer Lorely Rodriguez creates introspective, self-empowering pop music centered around her impressive, acrobatic vocals. On her 2015 debut album, Me, she established a danceable, spontaneous sound that embraced whimsicality and percussiveness. With her 2018 sophomore album, Us, Rodriguez wanted to facilitate a more equal exchange of energy between herself and her listeners, to create a community. Her third album - I'm Your Empress Of came on the heels of touring with Lizzo, Blood Orange, Maggie Rogers and Mura Masa and followed her collaborations with Khalid, MØ, DJDS and her song "Wild Girl" with KITO. Lorely shares, "After writing three albums, no process has been the same. This record wasn't written in a remote location. It wasn't written in a collaborative effort. It was written in my small studio in Highland Park, Los Angeles over two months in between touring the world. Music is magic. Something that possesses me, shows me things about myself that aren't easy to see. It's called I'm Your Empress Of because I've always felt that once a song is done, and the emotion is there and it's not inside me anymore, it belongs to the world."
