In the summer of 2018, Anna Calvi released her third album Hunter. On the album, she explored sexuality and breaking the laws of gender conformity. Following a stellar 18 months, which saw Calvi write her first television score (for peaky blinders) and receive her third consecutive Mercury Prize nomination (the first solo artist to achieve this feat), Calvi has now crafted a stunning reworking of Hunter into Hunted. Revisiting her first recordings for Hunter, Calvi found they offered an intimate and private view of the songs’ Initial intentions. Distilled to their bare essence on Hunted: her masterful guitar playing and formidable vocals, Calvi then asked on Barnett, Joe Talbot (idles), Charlotte Gainsbourg and Julia Holter to collaborate with her and further transform the songs.

Anna Calvi loved her third album so much, 2018’s Hunter, that she’s come back to it to deconstruct and build it back up again. And for four out of the seven of the revisited songs, the British singer shares the mic: with Charlotte Gainsbourg (Eden), Courtney Barnett (Don’t Beat the Girl out of My Boy), Julia Holter (Swimming Pool) and band Idles (Wish). The exercise is all the more interesting as she hides her usual panache in order to refine her songs to the extreme and play more on the textures of her voice (and those of her featured guests). She tones down her penchant for the gothic in favour of the sensuality, or even the sexuality of her art. This is evidenced with the powerful duet with Gainsbourg, or the whispered Away, which was already stripped back on Hunter. In thirty short minutes, Calvi certainly confirms that she is a singularly captivating artist. – Marc Zisman
