“I know Nick likes writing dark songs for himself, but when I present him with dark lyrics, he doesn’t like it,” says Faithfull. “So I’m careful of writing something more positive, and ‘The Gypsy Faerie Queen’ is a very good example of that. But I never know if he will like it or not. I do feel very lucky to be able to work with somebody like that, who I’m so fond of, who I respect so much, and love working with.

“It was really nice that he dropped in to La Frette studios during the album recording, and I didn’t expect it. We had a nice chat about the songs, the recording process, and what we do!”
