Variete - deluxe limited edition with bonus acoustic CD - Marc Almond

Variete - deluxe limited edition with bonus acoustic CD
Critically acclaimed and popularly adored, one of Britain's most musically eclectic singer/songwriters, Marc Almond, releases his new album Variete on 7th June through Cherry Red Records. Variete is Marc's first complete album of self-written songs since Open All Night, over a decade ago. The first 3000 copies of the album will be in a limited edition digipack with an exclusive bonus acoustic CD featuring additional unreleased tracks.

In this, Marc's 30th year as a recording artist, Varietee, revisits the eras of Marc's personal and musical life providing an eloquent and sometimes nostalgic, insight into what defines him as a performer.

Almond says "The album deals with the themes of the changing times, a yearning for simplicity, regret at loss, growing older, loneliness through the eyes of a performer, madness, letting go, acceptance, as well as our obsession with nostalgia. For me the past and a sense of history is what gives us soul and humanity, gives us value. I wanted to celebrate nostalgia.

He goes on to elaborate "This is a personal record of my own life and the decades I've grown through: born in the 1950's, a child of the 60's, a troubled teen of the 70's, a star of the 80's, a drug casualty of the 90's, an actual road casualty in the new millennium, and from it a rehabilitated and re-invented person, with a new sense of self."

Marc has always excelled at mixing musical genres and writing vividly poignant lyrics, as well as collaborating with musicians of note. Variete is produced and arranged by Marc himself, with the exception of 3 tracks (The Trials of Eyeliner, Bread and Circus and Soho So Long) which are produced and co-arranged by Tris Penna, who produced much of Marc's 2007 album Stardom Road.
