The video is produced by Prettybird (Bjork, Beyonce, Rihanna) and directed by the Grammy nominated English filmmaker John Maybury (‘Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon’, Sinead O’Connor : ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’). Inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ ‘The Gypsy Faerie Queen’ was co-written with Nick Cave and features his vocals and piano playing. “It’s a little miracle,” says Marianne. “It’s just gorgeous….I think it’s one of the loveliest songs we’ve ever written together. It was so great working with Nick again.”

I’m known by many different names,
My good friend Will calls me Puck and Robin Goodfellow,
I follow the Gypsy Faerie Queen
And I follow the Gypsy Faerie Queen

She walks the length and breadth of England,
Singing her song, using her wand,
To help and heal the land and the creatures on it,
She’s dressed in rags of moleskin
and wears a crown of Rowan berries on her brow…

And I follow, follow, follow,
The Gypsy Faerie Queen,
We exist, exist, exist, exist,
in the twilight in-between.

She bears a blackthorn staff
To help her in her walking,
I only listen to her sing,
But I never hear her talking anymore,
Though once she did,
Though once she did…

And I follow, follow, follow
My Gypsy Faerie Queen,
We exist, exist, exist,
in the twilight in-between,

And I follow, follow, follow,
My Gypsy Faerie Queen,
We exist, exist, exist,
in the country in-between,
Me and my Gypsy Queen.
