    After the releasing her acclaimed new album, Horses and High Heels via Naïve Records earlier this year, the iconic Marianne Faithfull has announced three nights of shows at New York's City Winery on Dec. 18, 19 and 20.

    Marianne has been an entrancing and creative musical presence for the past 47 years. Beginning with her debut single, "As Tears Go By" (1964, the first song ever written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards), Marianne has created an enduring legacy with her distinct, emotive and truly haunting voice. She has also established herself as a powerful songwriter with a gift for crafting visceral melodies and deeply resonant lyrics. Her artistic fearlessness has led her to sing with legends like David Bowie and Metallica, and collaborate with a younger generation of musicians she influenced such as Beck, Morrissey, Billy Corgan and Blur.

    Horses and High Heels consists of four originals and eight covers ranging from Carole King's "Going Back" to Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan's "The Stations." Four of the tracks feature virtuosic guitarist John Porter (Eric Clapton, The Smiths) while Lou Reed, Dr. John and the MC5's Wayne Kramer each make cameos on multiple songs. The set was prooduced by Hal Willner.
