“So, on Saturday April 16th, as part of Record Store Day, I will be releasing a Limited Edition double A side 7” vinyl single on Eyes Wide Shut Recordings. On one side is my new radically different version of ‘Marian’, a song I co-wrote many years ago with Andrew Eldritch for the Sisters Of Mercy First & Last & Always album.
The other A side is a song called ‘My Love Will protect You’, a song that I co-wrote just last year with Rebeca Y. Casanova as part of the Canciones De Cuna benefit album.
I was approached about a year or so ago by an Argentinian actor by the name of Nicolas Pauls asking if I would, could contribute to his project. Basically, he and his brother, fellow thespian Gaston, set up this organisation to help finance culture centres that offer art, music, theatre, poetry, and photography classes to homeless children in Buenos Aires. To help finance the project they asked some of the homeless kids to write poems that were then translated into English and offered to established national and international musicians, I being one, that we then work into lullabies and record for an album that will shortly be released. The lyrics for ‘My Love Will Protect You’ were written by Rebeca Y. Casanova.

Of course the single will be available to purchase at the shows on my solo April tour – dates below – but if for some unearthly reason you can’t make it to any of the dates then you can pre-order it from our online shop at http://the-mission.tmstor.es priced £6.99. There is also a new tour dates t-shirt available (see design below) priced at £22.50. We are also offering a bundle of single & t-shirt for £25. Please be aware that the single release is strictly limited to 1000 copies and there are no plans to release it digitally although My Love Will Protect You will be available at a later date as part of the Canciones De Cuna 2 album.
Of course you can also support Record Store Day and order the 7” vinyl through your local record shop by using this catalogue number – CAT No.: EWSR EP003.
