Marianne Faithfull Premieres New Song “The Gypsy Faerie Queen” featuring Nick Cave
- British singer-songwriter Marianne Faithfull has unveiled a new song “The Gypsy Faerie Queen” from her upcoming twenty-first studio album "Negative Capability".
She has worked with Nick Cave of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds for the song. It was written by Nick Cave and Marianne Faithfull.
The song is inspired by Shakespeare’s "A Midsummer Night’s Dream".
Marianne Faithfull explained how the collaboration with Nick Cave, “It’s a little miracle. I asked Nick if he would put music to it and he wrote back saying, ‘I’m so busy.’ I said, ‘I understand, sorry to bother you.’ Then he just wrote back, ‘Thank you so much for understanding; here’s the song.’ It’s just gorgeous.”
- The new album "Negative Capability" comprises of 11-track (digital version features more two songs), following 2014's "Give My Love to London".
“It’s the most honest album I’ve ever made,” she said. “I’ve always tried not to reveal myself. There’s nothing like real hardship to give you some depth. I’ve had terrible accidents and I’m really damaged. It’s changed my life forever. I’m in a lot of pain and worked really hard to get strong so I can do my work. The great miracle is I was able to make this beautiful record. I really had no idea how it would turn out. I just jumped in and hoped I would be able to do it. This is all what’s happened to me since my life changed but obviously if I do something I must do it really well.”
The new album is set to be released on November 2nd. It is available to pre-order here.
