While the article mainly retells Marianne’s lifestory for those that don’t know it there is also some exciting new information about “Give My Love To London” that I don’t want to keep from you any longer! Namely that six songtitles were revealed:
- "Sparrows Will Sing" (written by Roger Waters)
- "Mother Wolf" (co-written by Patrick Leonard)
- "Falling Back" (co-written by Anna Calvi)
- "Deep Water" (co-written by Nick Cave)
- "Love More Or Less" (co-written by Tom McRae)
- "Late Victorian Holocaust" (written by Nick Cave for Marianne).
Are you excited?
