On March 17, via Decca Records, Marianne Faithfull will be releasing a collaborative cover album, Easy Come, Easy Go with a powerhouse group of musicians, including Nick Cave, Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power), Antony Hegarty, Sean Lennon, Keith Richards, Teddy Thompson and Rufus Wainwright.

The album also features a stellar tracklist. Some highlights include Smokey Robinson's "Ooh Baby Baby" featuring Hegarty (of Antony & the Johnsons), and Lennon performing on two songs including "The Phoenix" and (with Marshall) the Neko Case composition "Hold On, Hold On."

Easy Come, Easy Go
was cut in nine days with just a few takes of each number in December 2007 at the famous Sear Sound recording studio in New York City. "The fact we were all in the room together, the musicians and myself - that's what gives this recording its urgency," explains Faithfull.

There will be two concert appearances at New York City's City Winery on March 27 and March 28.
