...and following on from that, a free download!: Anna's cover of The Wall by The Invisible here.

Quote:
It's been a quiet year for Anna Calvi, the kohl-eyed, guitar-wielding singer whose self-titled debut album took her from Cheap Hotel frontwoman to solo star in her own right. It was during her time with Cheap Hotel that she met the Invisible's Dave Okumu at the Asylum club in London, and the pair have remained friends ever since. The Wall – premiered here – is Calvi's bluesy take on the highlight of the Invisible's excellent Rispah album. Here she replaces the electronic throb and shimmering textures of the original with serrated guitar and distant drums. Calvi's sighs add to the tension before the drums take over and the whole thing explodes into life.

I absolutely adore this woman, I can't believe I hadn't thought to look her up on her ages ago. Ta for sharing all the images, etc.

EDIT: Ha, just realised that you started this thread, HeatherAnne (I read the post but not the name before posting my own comment). Endless shared loves.

just from the trailer alone it really does feel like she's taken it a notch further with the cinematic ambience....the use of orchestration is definitely a new approach.

interesting though,i read a snippet from an interview in mojo and it said morricone wasn't actually part of those she was inspired by this time but you can certainly hear his spirit here. probably already existed within her as with many artists.

it's really a fantastic time right now....goldfrapp is back with a more lushly-inspired album and now anna with her cinematic inclinations....i think many of us might be in quite a dream-state this autumn and winter for sure.
