Marianne Faithfull driving with her son Nicholas and Mick Jagger to the Hyde Park concert
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?

This is apparently my 3000th post on this blog, so I wanted to take the time to say thank you to everyone who has visited, followed and supported me since Faithfull Forever started in 2010. ♥ If you ever have any question about Marianne, or this blog or me, or have any suggestions please don’t hesitate to message me. x Maggie

Every time I hear the line “I can’t do nothing about his strange weather” from “Shades Of Cool” I have to think about Marianne and her song “Strange Weather”. (Really though, if you like Lana definitely check out Marianne Faithfull’s music, especially from the 1960s.)
Handwritten lyrics of the title song of Marianne Faithfull's new album "Give My Love To London" to be released later this year. The song was written with Steve Earle. Thanks MFOfficial!
