Anna Calvi is releasing a new album, “Hunted”, on March 6th via Domino Recordings. It is a new stripped down version of her 2018 album Hunterfeaturing various notable guest singers. On Monday she shared Hunted’s version of “Eden,” which features guest vocals from Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Calvi had this to say about the new track in a press release: “Charlotte Gainsbourg has taught me so much as a singer, in how the most quiet of utterances can be the most dramatic and powerful of all. When I was writing ‘Eden’ I had Charlotte’s voice in my head – there’s a secrecy and quiet power to this song that always made me think of her. It’s a dream come true to have collaborated with her.”

Previously Calvi had shared Hunted’s first single, a new version of “Don’t Beat the Girl Out of My Boy” that featured guest vocals from Courtney Barnett. Hunted also features Julia Holter and IDLES’ Joe Talbot.

Calvi had this to say about Hunted in a previous press release: “During a break from touring I went back and listened to the first recordings I ever made of Hunter. 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 favorite 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.”

Hunter was Calvi’s third full-length album and the follow up to 2011’s Anna Calvi and 2013’s One Breath. It was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Last year Calvi shared an atmospheric new song, “You’re Not God,” that was done for the soundtrack of the Netflix/BBC show Peaky Blinders .

Anna Calvi has recruited Courtney Barnett for a new version of “Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy”, which will feature on “Hunted” – a reworked version of Calvi’s 2018 album Hunter.

Hunted will also see Calvi team up with Joe Talbot of IDLES, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Julia Holter for new versions of Calvi’s Hunter tracks.

Speaking about Hunted and working with Barnett, Calvi explains, “During a break from touring I went back and listened to the first recordings I ever made of Hunter. 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 adds of the collaboration, “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.”

The first single to be released from Hunted is Calvi’s new version of “Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy”, featuring Courtney Barnett.
