Trying to discover who's producing the 3rd album etc
« on: September 23, 2016, 06:30:42 PM »
Looking (desperately) for any info about Anna Calvi's third album, I just found the quote below at http://gimpforhire.com/credits:

Quote
Anna Calvi // (Forthcoming Track) // Recording Engineer.


So I contacted Drew Smith to know more details, and he wrote back:

It was a while back, but I was engineering the session for David Kosten who was trialling as a producer for her next record - not sure if it will ever come out though.

Thanks AC for finding this.   
   Hopefully this refers to a recording session in early 2015, which seems to have been abandoned for whatever reason ?
   Anna spoke about writing new material in her Christmas message, which eventually should make its way onto the third album.
    But we have heard nothing from Anna or her management for ages on this ,or anything else ,on Fbook etc. 
    As we are all still supporting Anna , it would be nice to be given some information   :)

 David Kosten has produced Bats for Lashes , and Marina and the Diamonds !

It really feels like we're clutching at straws :).
However, I don't think an album is in the pipeline soon :(, if even this engineer hasn't any clue what's happened with the recorded stuff.
Looks really like this was from a recording session of songs that finally ended in the dustbin ,because Anna wasn't happy with them.
Mox nox.

What about Alex Thomas?

Watch out these pics which were probably taken in May of the last year. All of them (and more) can be found at: https://alexthomasdrums.wordpress.com/studio

Hint: Change the number 500 to see the bigger pictures. I did that when tried to read the paper with lyrics typed and it didn't seem to be the 'Blackstar' song.

Maybe these were sessions for  the album that never happened or already for the theatre  project.  In any way I can imagine Alex producing Anna's new album, though I've never heard anything yet produced by him.

Thanks for finding this post AC.....       Air Studios are well respected, and originally started by George Martin,   but also they are on the edge of Hampstead Heath,  perhaps Anna was not just out for  a Sunday afternoon walk in her Instagram post ?

    I am surprised they are playing an arrangement of Eliza, rather than a new song ?

Thanks, AC! But I hope Anna isn't just recording an album with orchestral versions of her old songs  :(
Hope this is for some other project like a soundtrack for a TV show, etc.

Once again a big thanks to you, AC, for finding this- what would we do without you? :)
Great news, Nick Launey is a fantastic producer and engineer; I think Anna is in good hands.

The credit for the next link is also yours, AC, thought it would be good to spread even more good news :).
And we can trust Alex to be a most reliable source.

It's really not that exciting, but here goes anyway.

Gillian Rivers collaborated with Anna on her new album.

It's really hard to find anything new...  ::)

Anna meeting Jehnny Beth in LA last autumn. She was probably there to mix and arrange her album. As she posted recently: she's very close ;).
