Anna Calvi has announced a mini-LP of intimate reworkings of songs from her 2018 album Hunter.
Hunted includes duets with Courtney Barnett, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Julia Holter and Joe Talbot from Idles. The seven-track affair will be released by Domino on March 6.
Listen to “Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy (ft. Courtney Barnett)” below:
“During a break from touring I went back and listened to the first recordings I ever made of Hunter,” says Calvi. “These recordings capture the very moment I first wrote these songs, and recorded them on my own, in my attic studio. I find something especially intimate about sharing these most private recordings with my favourite singers and asking them to lend their voices and artistic sensibility. Courtney Barnett is an amazing artist. Her voice and guitar playing together are mind blowing. Her ability to connect the profound to the smallest moments of human experience is the unique talent of a true artist.”
Barnett said of working together: “Anna is a completely awe-inspiring performer, it’s impossible to take your eyes off her onstage. I love her songwriting for its beautiful and perfect balance between aggression and tenderness”.
