Critically acclaimed and popularly adored, Varieté 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 digipak with an exclusive 7-tracks bonus acoustic CD featuring additional unreleased tracks and a 16 pages booklet, while the ‘regular editon’ includes CD1 only. In this, Marc’s 30th year as a recording artist, Varieté, 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.” Marc is joined on Varieté by long-term musical collaborators:- Neal Whitmore – Guitars, ukulele, piano, harmonica, Omnichord; Martin Watkins - Piano, keyboards, Omnichord; Dave Ruffy – Drums & percussion and Carl Holt – Bass. The album also features a selection of diverse musical guests and collaborators. Released on Strike Force.
