Nick Cave and Roger Waters are amongst those who have penned music for Marianne Faithfull‘s new album.

Give My Love To London will be released this September, featuring lyrics by Faithfull and music from a host of guest artists, including Pat Leonard, Tom McRae and Steve Earle. Faithfull will be backed by guest musicians Warren Ellis and Jim Sclavunos, from the Bad Seeds, as well as Portishead’s Adrian Utley on guitar, keyboards from Ed Harcourt, and a string quartet. The album has been produced by Rob Ellis and Dimitri Tikovoi, and mixed by Flood. Marianne Faithfull begins a year long world tour this autumn.

Yesterday (May 22) Nick Cave and Warren Ellis accepted the Album Award at the 59th Ivor Novello Awards in London for Push The Sky Away, beating Arctic Monkeys’ AM. The prize was presented by Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders.

“This is the one to get,” said Cave. “We don’t really go to many of these awards evenings but we come to this one.” He then thanked Ellis, with whom he co-wrote the album, saying, “He taught me how to dispense with three chords and get it down to one.”
