Marc Almond - I’m Not Anyone - LP

Released 12 July 2024

Alongside his status as one of the best songwriters of his generation, both in his solo career and as a member of the hugely influential Soft Cell, Marc Almond has built a reputation for being one of music’s greatest exponents of the art of the cover version. Always adept at taking a song and making it his own, Marc’s cover versions represent some of the landmarks in modern pop music – from ‘Tainted Love’ to ‘The Days Of Pearly Spencer’, from ‘Something’s Gotten Hold Of My Heart’ to ‘Jacky’.

For his latest solo outing ‘I’m Not Anyone’ Marc has done it again, with a deeply impressive suite of impeccably chosen interpretations of gems from the likes of Don McLean, King Crimson, Paul Anka, Colin Blunstone and Mahalia Jackson. Brought together on ‘I’m Not Anyone’, the 11-strong song cycle makes for a unified, soulful experience, with a deep emotional resonance.

As Marc says of ‘I’m Not Anyone’: “There is an underlying spirituality to this record, a thread of mystery and wonder, and sweetness.  The elemental references nod to my interest in all things Druid and Pagan, that spectrum between them, a closeness to the earth, to living things. I find comfort in the living world, in trees and animals, away from the insanity that engulfs and threatens us.”
