Easy Come, Easy Go is the 22nd album from Marianne Faithfull and was recorded in December 2007 in NYC at the famous Sear Sound recording studio.

Easy Come, Easy Go is the third album of Marianne's to be produced by Hal Willner (the others being Strange Weather and Blazing Away). Marianne and Hal have been close friends since they've met, back in 1982, and have worked together on many different projects over the years, (most recently on three songs from Marianne's acclaimed last album Before the Poison) but Easy Come, Easy Go is their first complete studio album since Strange Weather, more than 20 years ago. Like that earlier album, Easy Come Easy Go is a collection of songs written by others and interpreted by Marianne. When Strange Weather was released in 1987, it was quickly hailed as one of Marianne's finest recordings, so this time around the challenge was really high: Marianne and Hal had to make an album that was at least as good. Both artists have risen to the challenge beautifully: they achieve a timeless recording, a masterpiece.

Muze PNote EASY COME, EASY GO is Marianne Faithfull's second album with producer Hal Willner, coming over two decades after 1987's STRANGE WEATHER. Like its predecessor, this is a collection of covers of songs both old and new, but STRANGE WEATHER (like its 1980s predecessors BROKEN ENGLISH and DANGEROUS ACQUAINTANCES) was the sound of a singer still relatively new to sobriety after years as one of rock's most notorious addicts, with all the rough edges and hard-fought angst that implies. The far more elegant EASY COME, EASY GO finds a serene, 62-year-old Faithfull decades removed from her tortured depths, singing with an almost regal calm. Faithfull's guests include Nick Cave (on a duet of the Decemberists' "The Crane Wife 3"), Cat Power, Antony Hegarty, Rufus Wainwright, and Kate & Anna McGarrigle.

Professional Reviews

Spin (p.78)
- "[W]hen she interprets material that matches the drug-ravaged wreckage of her vocal chords, she kills..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.67)
- "Her interpretations of songbook classics from the likes of Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, and Smokey Robinson are gratifyingly intimate and rough-hewn..."

Mojo (Publisher)
(p.99)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]he shines on songs that seem more personal to her -- the languorous 'Black Coffee,' for instance, or the desperation of Morrissey's 'Dear God Please Help Me.'"

Record Collector (magazine)
(p.96)
- 5 stars out of 5 -- "Her burnished tones caress a panoramic variety of artists...while the music veers between starkly intimate to widescreen Bad Seeds-style blitz."

Uncut (magazine)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's an extravagantly orchestrated set, but with Marc Ribot as lead guitarist and the Dirty Three's Jim White on drums,, the playing remains off-kilter, to quite thrilling effect."

Bio

Marianne Faithfull

Marianne Faithfull's long and distinguished career has seen her emerge as one of the most original female singer-songwriters this country has produced; utterly unsentimental yet somehow affectionate, Marianne possesses that rare ability to transform any lyric into something compelling and utterly personal; and not just on her own songs, for she has become a master of the art of finding herself in the words and music of others.

Marianne Faithfull's story has of course been well documented, not least in her entertaining and insightful autobiography Faithfull (1994). Born in Hampstead in December 1946, Faithfull's career as the crown princess of swinging London was launched with "As Tears Go By," the first song ever written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Five albums followed whilst Marianne also embarked on a parallel career as an actress, both on film in Girl on a Motorcycle (1968), and on stage in Chekhov's Three Sisters (1967) and Hamlet (1969). By the end of the Sixties, personal problems halted Marianne's career and her drug addiction took over.

Faithfull emerged tentatively in the mid-Seventies with a country album called Dreamin' My Dreams (1976), but it was her furious re-surfacing on Broken English in 1979 that definitively brought her back. Further new wave explorations followed with Dangerous Acquaintances (1981) and A Child's Adventure (1983). But despite her new creative vigor, Marianne was not entirely free of the chemicals that had ravaged her in the sixties.

Displaying a sadness tempered by optimism, and a despair rescued by humor, Marianne returned, finally clean with a collection of classic pop, blues and art songs on the critically lauded Strange Weather (1987). A live retrospective followed on Blazing Away (CD and VHS, 1990), which ably displayed why Faithfull has become one of the most sought after concert artists of the last 30 years.
