On September 29th 2014 Marianne Faithfull will unleash her 20th studio album ‘Give My Love To London’, a characteristically far-reaching and eclectic record.  The first track that will be heard is the Roger Waters penned ‘Sparrows Will Sing’ on which Marianne rails against the state of the world in the early 21st century. Produced by Rob Ellis and Dimitri Tikovoi, mixed by Flood and with Ed Harcourt and Adrian Utley on bass and guitars, ‘Sparrows Will Sing’ is unsettling, haunting and poetic.

A child breaks the ice and peers into the hidden depths
And tries to decipher the whole of this unholy mess
I have no doubt he will figure it out some day

It is astonishing to consider the fact that 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the recording career of Marianne Faithfull. To mark her incredible half century as an artist, this autumn, Faithfull will return to the stage for a world tour while, in November, she will be the subject of a luxury photo book ‘Marianne Faithfull: A Life On Record’ edited by herself and Francois Ravard, published by Rizzoli, featuring iconic images of the singer by major photographers including Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Ellen Von Unwerth, Bruce Weber, Cecil Beaton and RobertMapplethorpe.
At the centre of this flurry of activity is Marianne’s stunning new album, ‘Give My Love To London’, an album of emotional extremes and the latest instalment in an outstanding musical career. In addition to the contributions of Ellis, Tikovoi and Flood, it features an impressive roll call of studio collaborators including Adrian Utley (Portishead), Brian Eno, Ed Harcourt and Warren Ellis & Jim Sclavunos (The Bad Seeds). Songwriting contributors and co-conspirators – with Faithfull penning the majority of the lyrics – include Nick Cave, Roger Waters, Steve Earle, Tom McRae and Anna Calvi.
While featuring a stellar supporting cast, it is Marianne’s voice which proves the main attraction. These are songs sung from the heart and soul and from the perspective of someone who has seen and done it all. Over a fifty-year career, she has proved utterly fearless in her music and everything else besides. Five decades on, Marianne Faithfull remains a unique and compelling musical figure: adventurous in her life, adventurous in her art.
