Marianne Faithful has just released her new album of covers called Easy Come Easy Go in Europe digitally, via iTunes. I was going to wait to write about this, since there are still no firm US or UK release dates for this (other than a vague “Spring 09 release”) but then i heard her cover of Morrissey‘s “Dear God Please Help Me.”

The album looks like it’s going to be a treat, and it features an elite list of guest spots, including Antony Hegarty (Antony & The Johnsons), Chan Marshall (Cat Power), Jarvis Cocker, Rufus Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, Sean Lennon, Keith Richards, Nick Cave, Kate and Anna McGarrigle. The album features covers by Dolly Parton, The Decemeberists, Neko Case, Billy Holiday, Smokey Robinson, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and many more. The album was recorded in NYC in December of 2007 and is produced by Hal Willner.

Here’s a cut to warm you while you wait for the release:

Dear God Please Help Me
