British singer/songwriter Marika Hackman is releasing a new album, Any Human Friend, on August 9 via Sub Pop. Now she has shared another song from the album, the sexually charged "all night." Listen below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Hackman had this to say about the song in a press release: "I thought it would be exciting to write a really overtly sexual song about a woman from the perspective of a woman. You don't hear much about sex between women in music, or if you do its usually from a fetishized male perspective, I thought I'd reclaim a bit of that power."

Previously she shared the album's first single "i'm not where you are" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for the song. Then she shared "the one," which made it to #1 on our Songs of the Week list.

Any Human Friend is the follow-up to her 2017-released breakthrough release, sophomore album I'm Not Your Man. Hackman co-produced the album with David Wrench (Frank Ocean, The xx, Let's Eat Grandma).

In a previous press release Hackman summed up the album this way: "This whole record is me diving into myself and peeling back the skin further and further, exposing myself in quite a big way. It can be quite sexual. It's blunt, but not offensive. It's mischievous." 

Hackman added: "I'm a hopeless romantic. I search for love and sexual experience, but also I'm terrified by it."

Hackman is unabashed about tackling these themes, even if her only family is a little less enthused. "I sent 'all night' to my parents and they were quite shocked," she said in the press release. "Why does it sound shocking coming out of my mouth? Women have sex with each other, and it seems to me we aren't as freely allowed to discuss that as men are. But at no point am I disrespecting the women I'm having sex with. It can be fucking sexy without banging people over the head with a frying pan. It's sexy sex."
