MUSICIAN, INSPIRATION, ACTRESS, MUSE, STYLE ICON

ONE OF THE MOST ORIGINAL FEMALE SINGER-SONGWRITERS

FIVE DECADES OF AN EXCEPTIONAL CAREER

It is astonishing to consider the fact that Marianne is celebrating over 50 years in music. Five decades on from that fateful 1964 party in London where she was spotted, at the age of 16, by The Rolling Stones’ manager Andrew Loog Oldham Marianne has proved utterly fearless in her music and everything else besides and remains a unique and compelling musical figure: adventurous in her life, and adventurous in her art producing a wide and varied catalogue of albums over a fifty-year career.

Negative Capability is Marianne Faithfull’s 21st album and the most emotionally powerful of her 54-year recording career. Facing down arthritis and bolstered by collaborators including Warren Ellis, Nick Cave, Rob Ellis, Ed Harcourt and Mark Lanegan, Negative Capability is charged with brutal honesty and autobiographical reflection as she addresses losing old friends, her loneliness living in her adopted city of Paris yet still hopes love can come around.
