mini album featuring covers of tracks by Suicide, David Bowie, FKA twigs & Connan Mockasin, as well as a stunning collaboration with David Byrne on the title track, a cover of Keren Ann’s ‘Strange Weather’.
The cover of Suicide’s 'Ghost Rider' was recorded with drummer Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley) & Nico Muhly contributes string arrangements to the opener, a deconstructed organic reworking of FKA twigs’ ‘Papi Pacify’. this collection of inventive cover versions demonstrates once again what an amazingly versatile & creative talent anna calvi is. "It’s only worth doing a version of someone else’s song if you bring something new to it. Anna Calvi certainly does that on this five-track EP of covers...Potential cover performers take note: this is how you do it" - nme.
