Some of you might remember me. The Faithfull hardcore from the Strasbourg gig in January!
I do have hot news regarding the new record of Marianne Faithfull to be released in late September:

Marianne’s new album ’EASY COME, EASY GO’
Marianne's new album EASY COME, EASY GO will be released at the end of September 2008. Recorded over a two week period at the end of 2007 at the historic Sear Sound studios in New York.
All the songs have been chosen by Marianne and Hal. The album includes interpretations of songs from such varied artists as Billie Holiday's 'Solitude', Merle Haggard's 'Sing me back home', Bessie Smith's 'Easy Come Easy Go Blues' (the title track), Morrissey 'Dear God Please Help Me' and Dolly Parton "Down from Dover.
Using a brass band and string section, the band also reunites Marianne with Marc Ribot, and Barry Reynolds. Both Marianne and Hal feel the album is one of their best to date. The album will also come out as a special edition; keep checking in for details.
I wonder how this cover will be like - so you are likely to love OR hate Marianne for this... ;-)))
Have a nice day!
