Marianne Faithfull

Marianne Faithfull's new album is a collection af covers. "Easy Come Easy Go" (Naive 2008) may be bought as a single CD or a double CD (and DVD). She sings Dolly Parton, Traffic, Eno, Smokey Robinson, Merle Haggard (and others) and brings along people like Hal Willmer (prod), Mark Ribot and Joey Baron in the band. Guest vocalists are (among others!) Keith Richards, Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker and the usual suspects Antony, Rufus Wainwright, the McGarrigle sisters and Teddy Thompson. Marianne Faithfull's voice is just beautiful, and the album is great. A lot of the songs were recorded live in the studio, on the first take. Way to go. On the video she sings Eno's "How many worlds".
