A long and distinguished career has seen Marianne Faithfull emerge as one of the most original female singer-songwriters performing. Completely unsentimental yet somehow affectionate. Possessed with a rare ability to transform any lyric into something compelling and utterly personal, but not just on her own songs, she can also find herself in the words and music of others. Her latest album, Easy Come, Easy Go, was released in 2008 and includes interpretations of songs from such varied artists as Billie Holiday, Merle Haggard, Bessie Smith, Morrissey, and Dolly Parton. Praise for the project is consistent: "Marianne Faithfull is the owner of one of the most fantastic broken voices in rock and roll history. An artist capable to have Beck, PJ Harvey, Rufus Wainwright, Jarvis Cocker and thousand more dying to collaborate with her". - Primera Linea (Spain) "Intense...elegant....moving...." - Rumore (Italy).
