Mary Lambert, ‘Welcome to the Age of My Body’ (Capitol)
Mary Lambert was the voice of the chorus on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ hit “Same Love,” and she’s the first Macklemore-associated act to get picked up by a major label. “Body Love,” broken into two parts on this EP, examines the challenges of being female in a society that objectifies women.
“I only know how to exist when I am wanted,” she sings.
It’s a moving song, but rises above politics to become a message about the human struggle to find faith and self-acceptance.More
