After Antony Hegarty (Antony and the Johnsons) bought Marc Almond back on stage as a surprise guest at his London show in 2005, he began to slowly gain vocal and physical strength. It was the start of a comeback which made him stronger then ever. He returned to the studio to record Stardom Road, an album full of songs telling his story. The album consists of covers and one new Almond composition. He’s combining the more familiar songs with some less known tracks. It is a portrait of all his major influences, and with tracks written by Charles Aznavour, David Bowie, Al Stewart, and Bert Kaempfert among others, you can’t do anything wrong.
