Anna Calvi has enlisted Courtney Barnett, Joe Talbot of Idles, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Julia Holter for a reworked version of her 2018 album Hunter – one of Live4ever’s top picks of that year.

Hunted is out on March 6th and is being previewed first with the new version of Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy featuring Courtney Barnett, who describes Calvi as a ‘completely awe-inspiring performer’.

“During a break from touring I went back and listened to the first recordings I ever made of Hunter,” Calvi recalls. “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.”
