Marianne Faithfull – Negative Capability


Negative Capability is the twenty-first studio album by British singer and songwriter Marianne Faithfull. It was released on 2 November 2018, and produced by Rob Ellis, Warren Ellis and Head. Described as her “most honest album”, songs on Negative Capability deal with themes of love, death, as well as terrorism and loneliness. She revisits three old recordings: “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” from Rich Kid Blues, recorded in 1971 under the title Masques, which is her ‘lost’ album and was not released until 1985; “Witches Song”, from 1979’s comeback album Broken English; and “As Tears Go By”, which started her career as a 17-year-old. Faithfull recorded it for the second time aged 40 on 1987’s Strange Weather. The rest of the songs are, with one exception, all new and co-written by Faithfull with help from some of her long time collaborators like Nick Cave and Ed Harcourt. The “Loneliest Person” is a cover of a Pretty Things composition from their 1968 album S.F. Sorrow.
