A Better Tomorrow

Marianne Faithfull's Easy Come Easy Go

Over the phone from her apartment in Paris, Marianne Faithfull's famous gravelly languidity comes dripping through the wires. She sounds happy, at peace with things, and eager to talk about her new album, Easy Come Easy Go, just out in the States on Decca.

Easy Come is another in a long line of Faithfull's projects in partnership with producer Hal Willner, a collaboration that began in 1985 with Willner's Kurt Weill tribute album Lost in the Stars. A remarkably well-selected and idiosyncratically arranged set of tunes culled from the best of this and last century's popular faves, Easy Come boasts clever and somehow appropriate help from a slew of young and old crooners and players, including Keith Richards, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright, Antony, Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power) and Sean Lennon.
