Marc Almond – Burn Bright (2013)

MA Single Sleeve Front

Earlier in 2013, Marc Almond realised the ambition of a lifetime when he attended the first of a few recording sessions with the legendary record producer Tony Visconti, famous for his work with David Bowie, Hazel O’Connor, T-Rex, The Moody Blues and Morrissey among many others. The first stunning results of their unique collaboration are to be heard on this Double ‘A’ side single ‘Burn Bright’ / ‘The Dancing Marquis’. In celebration of the union of these two prodigious talents, Strike Force Entertainment have created a highly collectable limited fans edition. A 7″ purple coloured vinyl single in a beautifully designed gatefold sleeve. This vinyl edition also contains the two tracks on a CD single housed on the inside of the gatefold sleeve. While both tracks are produced and mixed by Tony Visconti, he also arranged the strings on the hearteningly buoyant ‘Burn Bright’ with Martin Mc Carrick (Siouxsie And The Banshees, Therapy?) arranging the strings on the othertrack, the reflective ‘The Dancing Marquis’, a song that Marc Almond wrote ‘with Henry Paget 5th Marquess of Anglesey in mind’.
