Progressive pop singer-songwriter Marsha Swanson released her highly anticipated new album ‘Near Life Experience’ on January 19th, 2024. Her return has been highly acclaimed, with standout tracks including ‘Making Waves’ showcasing her emotive and truly resonating brand of pop that travels far and wide.

Now, she exclusively shares a video for two tracks taken from the album, in ‘Mahler’s Letter Of Intent’ ‘Alma Mahler’s Lament’. The first is another beautiful piano and string ballad, with the powerful imagery alongside as the track builds. Marsha has a unique ability to pull you in so closely with her intimately woven lyrics and arrangements.

‘Alma Mahler’s Lament’ is another slow mover, with Marsha’s effortless vocals floating so delicately amongst the minimal production. The video moves with the tender and evocative tale of this story between Gustav Mahler and his wife Alma using only still images, in what was portrayed as a tragic romantic relationship, where Marsha bares all in this stunning offering.

She says: “I have always been interested in the question of whether irreconcilable differences could have been reconcilable in different circumstances or with better communication. It is this that led me to represent both of their perspectives side by side in one piece of music. I wanted to do justice to each of their truths. I wrote the piece as two adjoining songs. The first song is my imagined interpretation of Gustav’s perspective of their relationship. This is followed by a short interlude which serves as a bridge before the 2nd song begins, my imagined interpretation of Alma’ s perspective.”
