THE BROKEN ENGLISH DELUXE EDITION RELEASED 28/01/2013

Marianne’s definitive album ‘Broken English’ is reissued in a luxury package which includes the album version released in 1979, the original ‘lost’ rock mix of the album, and a selection of bonus tracks including single mixes and 'Sister Morphine' Marianne’s co-write with the Rolling Stones; a song she had first released back in 1969 but re-recorded for a special Island 20th Anniversary 7” and 12” release of ‘Broken English’.

The package also includes the Derek Jarman short film of ‘Witches Song’, ‘The Ballad of Lucy Jordan’ and ‘Broken English’. Long before pop videos became a de-rigueur promotional tool, the film was initially shown in cinemas before the main feature, and it gets its first commercial release on this set. The short film was a bold original statement that perfectly matched the world Marianne had created in her songs.

On its release in late ‘79 ‘Broken English’ was an instant critical and commercial success bringing Marianne a new image, an international following, a Grammy nomination and the confidence to record more of her own compositions. There have been few comebacks as startling as this, few records as unexpected as this… “I thought I was going to die, that this was my last chance to make a record. It’s this sense, that “fucking hell, before I die, I’m going to show you bastards who I am.”

INNOCENCE AND EXPERIENCE, TATE LIVERPOOL 21/04/12 - 02/09/12 FREE ADMISSION

Marianne is the latest co-curator in the acclaimed DLA Piper Series at Tate Liverpool. Faithfull has worked with the curatorial team at Tate Liverpool to select works from the Tate Collection for a new display entitled Innocence and Experience which reflect and offer a meditation upon her artistic influences, and her celebrated and very public life.



Robert Mapplethorpe’s striking 1976 photographic portrait of Faithfull provides a starting point for the display. Many of the artworks presented have personal significance for Faithfull, drawing upon friendships or collaborations with artists and performers across a variety of different art forms. Works such as Richard Hamilton’s Swingeing London 67 are linked directly to Faithfull’s public life, signalling her position within the pop aristocracy.

The selection also reflects Faithfull’s long standing interest in Romantic presentiments of darkness and the edgier side of human nature and eroticism: elements found in her own songs and performances. Featured artists include Francis Bacon, Balthus, William Blake, Marlene Dumas and Lucian Freud.

The display places Faithfull at the epicentre of swinging sixties avant-garde cool. John Dunbar, who co-founded Indica Gallery in London in the mid-1960s while married to Faithfull, has assisted Marianne in the curatorial process. Within Innocence and Experience, artists such as Richard Long, Colin Self and David Tremlett, who engaged with aspects of conceptual and performance art, reflect upon this important time for British art of which John and Marianne were an integral part. Indica, famed as the gallery where John Lennon first met Yoko Ono, is currently the subject of one of the current BP British Art Displays 1500-2011 at Tate Britain, recognising the gallery’s significance in defining 1960s London as a centre for radical artistic expression.

For Faithfull, the exhibition also signals a return to the city she remembers vividly from childhood: her family lived for a number of years in nearby Ormskirk, while her father completed his doctorate at The University of Liverpool. Faithfull said, “I was brought up to appreciate art and as a teenager was a frequent visitor to what was then the Tate Gallery in London. I have been fortunate in that my life is intertwined with those of artists and performers whose work is a continuing source of inspiration, which has guided the selection of works for this exhibition. I am delighted to be able to work with Tate Liverpool and with John Dunbar to realise this project.”
MARIANNE CONTRIBUTES TO THE NEW AMNESTY ALBUM

In support of Global Human Rights Day, Marianne contributes a new version of 'Baby Let Me Follow You Down' to "Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International" featuring 70+ songs the album is available for pre-order exclusivley on Amnesty International's store, along with a 24 hour stream of the album on the Amnesty Facebook page.

The Commander of Arts and Letters is given to those who have contributed to the "enrichment of the French cultural inheritance."

THE MARIANNE FAITHFULL BROKEN ENGLISH SESSION BY DENNIS MORRIS

IN JUNE 2010, Snap Galleries, specialists in rare and exclusive music photography, are hosting a world exclusive exhibition in their new central London gallery space for acclaimed photographer Dennis Morris.

The exhibition brings together, for the first time anywhere in the world, a collection of unseen images of Marianne Faithfull from the session that produced the cover shot to one of her most important albums, 1979s Broken English. Entitled The Marianne Faithfull Broken English Session, it will be on display from June 11 to July 31, 2010.

http://www.snapgalleries.com/exhibitions/dennis-morris--marianne-faithfull/

In 1976, Dennis Morris was a hungry young photographer with big ideas. Photography was his world. To say it saved his life would not be an exaggeration. It was while bunking off school to wait for Bob Marley to arrive for a soundcheck at the Speak Easy Club in London that Dennis’ career really began. The photographs he shot that day of Bob Marley and The Wailers became famous the world over.

By 1979, Morris was on the lookout for new opportunities. A major challenge came in the form of a job offer from Island Records. Dennis recalls: “I had just accepted the post as art director with an A+R capacity, a first in the industry. Chris Blackwell, owner and founder of Island Records, offered me the job. My early signings included The Slits and Linton Kwesi Johnson, I also did all the photography and design for LKJs albums”.

In 1979, Island had just signed Marianne Faithfull, Broken English was to be her label debut LP. When Morris heard the album, he was blown away by its lyrical rawness and Marianne’s sultry, seductive voice. Island were searching for an image for the album cover that would be as arresting as the album. They brought in the big guns of the time: David Bailey, Barry Lategan and Clive Arrowsmith, but no-one produced ‘the shot’.

Dennis recalls: “I kept asking to do a shoot but the answer was always “no”. “It’s too big, you haven’t settled in” came the reply”. Eventually Tim Clark, the Managing Director of Island at the time said: “Give the boy a shot”. “It felt right to book the studio for a late session with Marianne; I had the shot in my head, it was simple, the set was just one armchair and two lights; it was just about her: the voice, the seductiveness and I wanted to capture this on film.

MARIANNE FILMING FACES IN THE CROWD

Faces in the Crowd, is the latest film by French writer-director Julien Magnat. The film starring starring Milla Jovovich and Julian McMahon, will also feature Marianne in a supporting role.

Jovovich (Resident Evil), stars as a woman who barely survives an attack by a serial killer known as Tearjerk Jack, and emerges from the experience with an inability to see faces.Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) plays the police detective trying to protect Jovovich's elementary schoolteacher from another attack.

Marianne is playing "Dr. Langenkamp," the therapist who tries to help Jovovich's character through her trauma.

The film's writer-director Julien Magnat, was born in France and has a history in French genre cinema, and received both writer and director credits on the comic book movie Bloody Mallory.

The tour continues through Brisbane Melbourne and Perth.

Marianne the Q Icon

Marianne Faithfull was awarded the Q icon award at the Q Magazine Awards 2009. Accepting the award from Jarvis Cocker, Marianne was grateful for her first UK recognition and paid credit to those who helped her throughout her long career, "Thank you very much, I've never recieved an award before in Britain, in England. So this means alot, that it's been noticed. Everything's gone out of my head, I'm very touched. I've got to thanks my PR Rob (Partridge) who's unfortunately now dead, Andrew Loog Oldham, the wonderful Chris Blackwell, the people from the sixties, they're all very important and my wonderful publicist who I worked with for many years who wanted me to win this. Thank you very much, thank you."

MARIANNE FAITHFULL RETURNS STATESIDE WITH A FALL U.S. TOUR IN SUPPORT OF HER ìSTUNNINGî (USA TODAY) ALBUM EASY COME, EASY GO IN STORES NOW (Decca/naïve)

After a successful U.S. promotional visit with media coverage including; NPRís Weekend Edition Sunday and World CafÈ, The Late Show with David Letterman, CBS Sunday Morning and a stellar performance at The City Winery in New York City, the iconic singer Marianne Faithfull returns for a major tour in support of her Decca debut Easy Come, Easy Go. The tour kicks off on September 24th at New York Cityís Town Hall and continues throughout select cities until wrapping up in Jacksonville, FL on October 21st at the Florida Theatre. (See the complete list of tour dates below.) She will perform songs from her critically acclaimed new album Easy Come, Easy Go as well as dipping into the wealth of material from her expansive career.

Easy Come, Easy Go is a hauntingly beautiful, timeless collection of twelve popular songs reinterpreted in Marianneís own unique style, and each personally selected by the artist herself. The record reunites Faithfull with producer Hal Willner in their first album-length collaboration since Strange Weather in 1987 (Hal also produced Marianneís 1990 live set Blazing Away and three tracks on her 2005 release Before the Poison). Faithful, along with Willner, poured over nearly a century of pop music in choosing the songs for Easy Come, Easy Go. Billie Holidayís brooding classic ìSolitudeî and Merle Haggardís ìSing Me Back Homeî blend seamlessly with contemporary songs such as Espersí ìChildren Of Stone,î Morrisseyís ìDear God Please Help Me,î and The Decemberistsí ìThe Crane Wife 3.î

The album received a massive amount of praise with major features in Interview Magazine, Black Book and BLURT to name a few. USA Today stated the album was ìmasterfulî and ìstunningî while Rolling Stone affirmed that ìMarianne Faithfull confirms her status as matriarch on this brilliantly programmed covers set.î

In concert Marianne Faithfull creates an intimate feeling with a unique quality of transforming lyrics into seemingly personal moments that captivate the audience.
Marianne will conclude her season of events tomorrow (June 18th) at Cite de la Music in Paris with the second of two concerts on her Easy Come Easy Go tour.

Tomorrow's concert will be transmitted live on the Cite de La musique website at 20.00pm french time, and will remain on their website for a month thereafter.
