Originally released in 1999, Vagabond Ways was recorded at Teatro Studios in California and produced by Daniel Lanois and Mark Howard. Vagabond Ways is a collection of original material, including Faithfull's own compositions as well as interpretations of songs written by some of the finest songwriters of her generation, such as Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Leonard Cohen and Roger Waters. The 10 stunning recordings feature contributions from Roger Waters (bass, keyboards), Emmylou Harris (background vocals) and Daniel Lanois (guitar, bass, drums, percussion, loops).
The vinyl format is issued here for the very first time on heavyweight vinyl.
For long-time fans, Vagabond Ways is a worthy addition to her body of work. For newcomers, it's a suitable introduction to one of the true icons of rock history and one who has become more relevant with age.
On her gorgeous 1999 album Vagabond Ways, she was joined in the studio and in spirit by Emmylou Harris, Roger Waters, Elton John and Daniel Lanois. With their help, Faithfull continued to adapt to the times by giving her perfectly weathered voice a backdrop of dark synthetic pop and leathery torch songs like her snaking version of Leonard Cohen's 'Tower of Song' and the combustible original 'Electra.' A moody and beguiling work worthy of the grand dame of British music.
