Her bloody valentine
Patti Smith's new tribute to Robert Mapplethorpe
The Coral Sea – the book written by the totally amazing, visionary, god-like Patti Smith in 1996 and dedicated to her late friend, the equally amazing, visionary, god-like photographer Robert Mapplethorpe – is to be released as an album with musical backing from the My Bloody Valentine's* Kevin Shields.
The album will be released on July 10th.
It goes without saying, of course, that this will (probably) be a work of genius.
