MARK MORRISS - covers Sisters Of Mercy's 'Lucretia' for new album

Mark Morriss is a bit of a buzz-word right now with The Bluetones frontman recently announcing a reunion tour for this September, with many of the dates close to selling out. This album is the second studio solo album from Mark. Titled “The Taste of Mark Morriss”, this record is a 12-track intimate insight into the creative-mind of one of the UK’s finest song-writers.

Mark has selected his favourite “blast from the past” songs that helped to form his musical tastes and shape the songwriting abilities we all know and love, picked them apart and re-invented them with his own flair.

Featuring something for everyone, the album provides an eclectic mix of covers, including The Sisters Of Mercy, Madonna, Laura Brannigan, Weezer and The Pet Shop Boys. Bringing listeners a trip down “Memory Lane” with a fresh, new perspective.
