Marc Carroll: New Album Announced + Title Track Premiere

25 Aug 2015

We are proud to announce Marc Carroll’s brand new 7th studio album ‘Love Is All Or Love Is Not At All’ will be released on 6th November! The title track - a collaboration with poet, author, philosopher and legendary musician, Penny Rimbaud from seminal and continually influential band, Crass - premiered today on Louder Than War. Read the article and listen to the track here.

‘Love Is All Or Love Is Not At All’ was produced by Marc Carroll and Graham Sutton (Bark Psychosis, These New Puritans).

The record brings together ten unwavering songs that reflect the triumph of love over destruction and adversity.

The title track is a collaboration with poet, author, philosopher and legendary musician, Penny Rimbaud, celebrated for his work with the seminal and continually influential band, Crass. In a similar vein is the accompanying subtly subversive artwork designed by Gee Vaucher, responsible for the iconic Crass artwork.

Marc: “Everything about Penny and Gee resonates with me, their art, words, sense of humour. Their life’s work has influenced millions. And it has been a life’s work. It’s a beautiful story that is still lived out to this day. Quite simply, there is no authority but yourself.”

Penny: “What’s my connection with Marc? A sense of love. What kind of sense is that? Common sense.  It’s all in the title, Love is… All.”

Much of the work here resonates with these connections and associations – from the opening track, ‘No Hallelujah Here’, a humble yet searing reflection on the killing of four small boys playing football on a beach during the vicious attacks on Gaza in 2014, to the triumphant call for unity and love, ‘Ball and Chain’. The former was the first song written for the new record and in the broadest sense frames the album’s themes.

‘Love Is All Or Love Is Not At All’ is an inspiring meditation on the nature of love itself, spoken and written by Penny for the album, while ‘A Child in Midstream’ - reminiscent of a New Orleans funeral march, replete with blazing, improvised Jazz trumpet by Noel Langley (Bill Fay) – conjures up an apocalyptic, almost visual contemplation on nature.

In keeping with the spirit of the album, Jody Stephens from the legendary Big Star, drums on the powerful and celebratory ‘Lost and Lonely’, while Pete Thomas (The Attractions) drums on ‘Ball and Chain’ and ‘Catalina In The Distance’. My Morning Jacket’s Bo Koster makes a welcome reappearance adding keys to ‘No Hallelujah Here’, ‘A Child in Midstream’, ‘Catalina in the Distance’ and ‘Against All Odds’.

Love Is All or Love Is Not At All will be available on 2 x LP (with exclusive print and postcard by Gee Vaucher) and will be released as a CD and digitally.
