Marilyn Love or Money

Marilyn is Back!

Pop culture icon Marilyn returns to the music scene with his new single Love or Money. 

Lisa Climie Management is delighted to be managing Marilyn on his return to the music scene, with the new single Love or Money, co-written and produced by close friend and confidante Boy George, and due for release on September 23rd 2016.

Since his extremely influential days in the New Romantic scene of the 80s, Marilyn has been a champion for self-expression. He challenged peoples ideas of gender as a man of incredible beauty, looking every bit as good dressed in women’s clothes as his idol Marilyn Monroe.

‘I used to bring Oxford Street to a standstill. If you had bleached hair in the late 70s, you were gobbed at in the street. I mean, I was also wearing a corset, stilettos and an antique dress. I just didn’t care’.

Alongside David Bowie and Boy George, Marilyn and co. were recognised as being the vanguards of non gender specific fashion. Marilyn modelled for designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier. A regular at ‘The Blitz’ nightclub run by Steve Strange of Visage, the club was the go-to venue for Spandau Ballet, Boy George and many others from the burgeoning New Romantic scene. Twenty years later, Marilyn is back and better than ever.

Speaking of the new single and on working with Boy George, Marilyn explains,

‘it was the first song George and I wrote/recorded together in the studio, earlier this year. It came about so organically and it was George who suggested going back to my roots, sonically - taking inspiration from the rhythms of the islands that soundtracked my childhood. I was born in Jamaica, spent the early years of my life there, I have duel English/Jamaican citizenship. Reggae has been a huge influence, but I'd never thought to incorporate it in to my own music before’.

The track is being released on Marilyn’s own label Mmm.music through RightTrack/Universal.
