Marc Almond is back with a brand new 4-track EP, featuring a plethora of 'friends' including Jarvis Cocker (Pulp) and Carl Barat (The Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things).
Following the successful experience with double A single Burn Bright/The Dancing Marquis, legendary producer Tony Visconti (Bowie, T-Rex, The Moody Blues, Morrissey) is also back working alongside Marc.
Next to producer Tris Penna, Visconti lends a helping hand on string arrangements and mixing duties for the opening track, Tasmanian Tiger, and Death of a Dandy, the latter inspired by the recent death of Soho's tragic artist Sebastian Horsley and featuring special guest Danielz from T-Rex tribute 'T.Rextasy'.
Jarvis Cocker brings to the mix an infectious electro-pop number he wrote for the occasion, Worship Me Now, where he also features on backing vocals and takes care of production with Jason Buckle (All Seeing I). Completing the recording, Love Is Not On Trial, sees Almond continuing his collaboration with Carl Barat, his co-star in the 2012 opera Poppea at Theatre du Chatelet in Paris. Produced again by Tris Penna, the song was written especially for Marc by Carl, who also features on guitar and vocals.
The eclectic 4 track EP will be available to buy on digital download from February 10; for die-hard fans and collectors, there will be also a strictly limited edition 7" turquoise colored vinyl in a beautifully designed gatefold sleeve, complete with a CD of the same four songs.
