Marianne Faithfull has announced three night stand at New York's City Winery on December 18th, 19th, and 20th.
The dates will be in support of her forthcoming album Horses and High Heels which hits stores this fall.
Horses and High Heels consists of four originals and eight covers ranging fromCarole King's "Going Back" to Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan's "The Stations." Four of the tracks feature virtuosic guitarist John Porter (Eric Clapton, The Smiths) while Lou Reed and Dr. John/MC5's Wayne Kramer each make cameos on multiple songs.
Horses and High Heels was recorded in New Orleans and features a core of masterful local musicians. It was produced by Hal Willner (Laurie Anderson, Allen Ginsberg), who also helmed Marianne's critically-acclaimed 2009 collection of covers and duets: Easy Come, Easy Go. The songs touch on everything from soul, blues, folk, country, jazz-pop perkiness, and beguiling guitar-rock. Much like the rest of her career, the only consistent theme or style of the album is Marianne herself.
