Marianne Faithfull: Negative Capability (Vinyl LP)
BMG Rights Managemen
Negative Capability (a title borrowed from Romantic poet John Keats) is Marianne Faithfull's twenty-first album and the most emotionally powerful of her 54-year recording career. Facing down arthritis and bolstered by collaborators including Warren Ellis, Nick Cave, Rob Ellis, Ed Harcourt and Mark Lanegan, Negative Capability is charged with brutal honesty and autobiographical reflection as she addresses losing old friends, the loneliness of living in her adopted city of Paris and still hoping love can come around. It includes the single "The Gypsy Faerie Queen" co-written with Nick Cave and covers of contemporaries The Rolling Stones ("As Tears Go By") and Bob Dylan ("It's All Over Now, Baby Blue").
