The Forthcoming John Martyn Tribute Album Looks Pretty Great







A really impressive array of artists (Beck, Devendra, Robert Smith...) have already come together to contribute songs for an upcoming John Martyn tribute album (no release date yet). This guy was a real talent so these songs should hopefully be something special. Martyn's final album (which was left unfinished when he passed in January) will also be completed by his friends Gary Pollitt and Jim Tullio. Partial, still germinating tracklist for the tribute album is after the bump.

01 Beck – “Stormbringer”
02 Snow Patrol – “May You Never”
03 Robert Smith (of The Cure) – “Small Hours”
04 Blackships (Nick McCabe, Simon Jones of the Verve) – “Rope Soul’d or Sapphire”
05 Beth Orton – “Go Down Easy”
06 David Gray – “Let The Good Things Come”
07 Lisa Hannigan – “Couldn’t Love You More”
08 The Swell Season – “I Don’t Want to Know”
09 Paolo Nutini – “One World”
