Marc Almond Finshes New Album...

Marc Almond finishes recording his new album this week. Stardom Road is a collection of covers chosen by the former Soft Cell frontman to tell his life story. "It consists of my favourite songs by other people and will be released in January," he says.

Produced by Tris Penna, the album also features Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons, Jools Holland and St Etienne's Sarah Cracknell, who duets with Almond on the Dusty Springfield song I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten.

Almond's next project sounds even more ambitious: "I'm also working on an album of the songs of Russian gypsy romance singer and dissident Vadim Kozin."

    in a live show to celebrate Dusty Springfields inauguration to the UK Musik Hall of Fame yesterday night broadcasted from the Mermaid Theatre in London to BBC2 Marc Almond performed songs together with David McAlmond, Kiki Dee and Madeleine Bell. Unfortunately the sound-mix was weak. Marc did not sing I CLOSE MY EYES AND COUNT TO TEN on that occasion. The song was perfromed by Kiki Dee or the other girl. Marc did I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF and IF YOU GO AWAY and YESTERDAY, WHEN I WAS YOUNG and a duet with David McAlmont LITTLE BY LITTLE and joined in for the finale of YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY YOU LOVE ME. Show can be heard for the next week on www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/fridaynight/
