London date for Marianne Faithfull
Marianne Faithfull has announced she will play the Royal Festival Hall in London on 29th November.
The show comes in the wake of two new projects: Marianne Faithfull: A Life On Record, a book edited by herself and Francois Ravard, published by Rizzoli, featuring images of the singer by major photographers including Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Ellen Von Unwerth, Bruce Weber, Cecil Beaton and Robert Mapplethorpe.
A new album, Give My Love To London (29th September), is produced by Rob Ellis and Dimitri Tikovoi and mixed by Flood. It features collaborators including Adrian Utley (Portishead), Brian Eno, Ed Harcourt and Warren Ellis & Jim Sclavunos (The Bad Seeds). Songwriting contributors – with Marianne penning the majority of the lyrics – include Nick Cave, Roger Waters, Steve Earle, Tom McRae and Anna Calvi.
