Broken English is the seventh studio album by English singer Marianne Faithfull. It was released on 2 November 1979 by Island Records. The album marked a major comeback for Faithfull after years of drug abuse, homelessness, and suffering from anorexia. It is often regarded as her "definitive recording" and Faithfull herself described it as her "masterpiece".

After a lengthy absence, Faithfull resurfaced on this 1979 album, which took the edgy and brittle sound of punk rock and gave it a shot of studio-smooth dance rock. Faithfull's whiskey-worn vocals perfectly match the bitter and biting "Why'd Ya Do It" and revitalize John Lennon's "Working Class Hero.

Marianne at a Broken English album launch in Germany 1980. Confounding expectations, Marianne had managed to surf the zeitgeist a second time. Sounds sardonically noted that it’s probably such low expectations that made it possible for her to make an album as good as this. But the album was such a bold declaration of intent that it instantly re-fashioned Marianne’s public image amongst the music press; critics were finally judging Marianne on her own terms. Broken English is a triumph. A still from the 'Ballad of Lucy Jordan' section of the Derek Jarman short film 'Broken English'.
