  At last some news of Anna ,s new album and tour via all social media feeds yesterday .

"  All I can do is wear what I create like a coat to cover me and protect me, and the deeper I fall into its arms the better it holds me. I can't risk rushing what I love, but I hope when it finds you, this music I'm making might give you something. I'm very close... See you in 2018 "

    Anna has finished her new album and is getting ready to release it, with ,  hopefully, a tour as well.

   What fantastic news to end the year , as well as some of us a seeing Anna again on Tuesday night ,  looks as if we are all in for a good 2018  :)

Finally we get rewarded for our patience by Anna and with the most poetic introduction to her new work- that's the perfect Christmas gift  :).
Thanks Michael and AC for posting and finding. This festival though is probably just another Bowie tribute; the 'real' tour has yet to be announced.

Speculation is futile, but I can’t help wondering what Anna’s upcoming album will be like. Anna is quoted as saying that she is really proud of the new album, that it is the most fully realised work that she has done! If this means that it is better than the first two albums, we are in for a treat.
Reading Anna’s Facebook post on 21st December indicates that the new music is going to be more personal than ever, so I think we can expect more “laying bare” of relationships, not necessarily in the lyrics but certainly in the music; Anna, after all, is first and foremost a musician. To achieve this extra emotion, I expect Anna will delve deeply into her classical influences. These will be subtle (as ever) and therefore hard to identify but I’m expecting a multi-layered sound that will be rich and powerful, interspersed with quieter moments than will enhance the effect that much more.
Of course, I could be wrong; so perhaps an even bigger surprise awaits us! Can’t wait.

Thanks for finding this AC ...

This looks to be the first actual date we have found  for Anna  playing  new material with her band, rather than Bowie tributes.

 At last some encouraging news ...!

Imogen Snell, meanwhile, the long term creative director for The xx, known for its incredible album artwork, works closely with designer Grace Wales-Bonner, and recently has been spearheading the creative rebirth of Anna Calvi’s true punk self.


Quote
Imogen Snell: I’ve just worked on a full album campaign for Anna Calvi. She played me her music quite early on, and it has this incredible raw, feminine, and quite punk sound. I was immediately taken with the music because it was much more intense than anything I’d heard from her before. I went and met her, and we started discussing how it’s a queer album, and she’s feeling empowered, and we really got on. Suddenly the visual world just came to me, and I went away and did a bunch of research and it was bang on, she loved it.

All the references she’d told me about were totally in my world — power and performance, and tailoring and woman. It was just the perfect project to me, it was so visual. She gave me a lot of freedom, and I got to work with Emma Wyman from Dazed who’s a brilliant stylist… we basically made an incredible world. Sometimes you don’t have that as a creative director, when you get brought on to execute someone’s vision. Of course I understand briefs, but this was just a particular project I was proud of because it was close to visuals I like. We had a direct line about what we were trying to do.

Anna Calvi for radio FM4 - Berlin, July 2018

Quote
"When I was a kid I used to play football. I was really good at it, but I was frustrated because the boys never let me play with them. I remember being an eight year old and I never heard of the word feminism. So I asked myself why these boys didn't respect me just because I was a girl. Maybe, in a way, that was the beginning of my feminist awakening".

Thanks AC for the links.  I checked MOJO and can see nothing about Anna Calvi, so not sure what the Tweet was about..

I will upload the Q magazine interview, although again there is very little information about the musical content of the new album, apart from a brief part at the end.  Mostly a repeat of Anna,s agenda and manifesto..    Hopefully we might eventually learn something about the recording of the album, why there seems to have been a change in musical direction from the orchestral path she seemed to be following, who was involved, why has Mally's harmonium been dropped from the live show, why she chose to record at Konk Studios etc, etc...
