Marianne Faithfull’s new album Give My Love To London was released in North America last week via Easy Sound — she spoke to Vogue and Rolling Stone about the record and celebrating the 50th year of her career in music.
As Marianne Faithfull’s 20th studio album, Give My Love To London is the latest installment in an outstanding musical career. A characteristically farreaching and eclectic offering, Give My Love To London is an album of emotional extremes.
Produced by Rob Ellis and Dimitri Tikovoi and mixed by Flood, it features an impressive roll call of studio collaborators including Adrian Utley (Portishead), Brian Eno, Ed Harcourt, Warren Ellis and 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 Faithfull’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.
