So what has Anna Calvi been doing in the five years since releasing her stellar sophomore album, 2013’s One Breath, this English art-rocker Anna Calvi has kept extremely busy: writing a song for the film Insurgent, releasing a David Byrne-featuring EP, appearing on two David Bowie tribute albums, and oh, writing an entire rock opera. Her third full-length album release, Hunter, looks to retain the singer-songwriter and guitar virtuoso’s flair for drama, this time “exploring sexuality and breaking the laws of gender conformity.” With production by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Grinderman) and featuring Bad Seed Martyn Casey and Portishead’s Adrian Utley, Hunter promises to be as compelling musically as it is thematically.

Anna Calvi – “Don’t Beat the Girl out of My Boy”, from ‘Hunter’ out 31st August 2018 on Domino Record Co.
