Marianne Faithfull Give My Love to London

Jurassic World
 
In a career spanning over five decades, the iconic rock singer Marianne Faithfull continues creating music that astonishes as evidenced by “Late Victorian Holocaust” – written by Nick Cave – from her newest album Give My Love to London. From Faithfull’s biography:

It is astonishing to consider the fact that 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the recording career of Marianne Faithfull. 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 – finding herself only three months later a Top 10 pop star with her evocative reading of Jagger/Richards’ As Tears Go By – she has lived a wholly eventful life and produced a wide and varied catalogue of albums.

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 Marianne by major photographers including Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Ellen Von Unwerth, Bruce Weber, Cecil Beaton and Robert Mapplethorpe.

From Faithfull’s Wikipedia entry:

In addition to her expansive music career, Faithfull has an extensive history as an actress in theatre including work on stage in the adaptation of Chekhov’s “Three Sisters”, at the Royal Court Theatre, “The Threepenny Opera” at the Gate Theatre in Dublin, and in Kurt Weill’s “The Seven Deadly Sins” with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Faithfull has acted in numerous film and television roles including Jean-Luc Godard’s film “Made in U.S.A.” and Sofia Coppola’s 2006 biopic, “Marie Antoinette”. Read more.
