This is very exciting!

I haven't been on here for ages but seeing Anna's tweets sent me over.  Good to "see" you all. :)

Finally! It's interesting she's using a fashion show to introduce new songs, but never mind; they obviously provide her with a big stage and orchestra and choir and it will be streamed and the music will be on Apple Music right after. So that's the best promotion she could ask for.

Anna Calvi is back! :)

Hello, substandardnerd, good to see you again :)

The new cover will be "iT", by Christine and the Queens. The show will be conducted by Sam Thompson with new arrangements by Chris Wheeler and Jherek Bischoff, supported by Tristan Noon.

I am living hard, as the kids say, for that first track.

Overall it was an excellent show.  Anna,s voice was amazing and she looked well.
Her Guitar shredding was better than ever..

Cover of IT was the highlight. 
 Not entirely sure about " Whip the Night " ,  some odd lyrics,  will have to listen to it  few more times.
Nathaniel seemed very similar to Rider to the sea..

But it was great to see Anna in action again, and gives us a glimpse of what to expect with the new album.  :)

Well, on the whole, pretty good I think: Anna certainly looked and sounded good. I think that the end of Desire on the EP sounds a bit forced, a bit desperate on the part of the choir. I reserve judgement on the two new ones, but IT is superb, I think. As to the show: I think it's a bad sign when the models look vaguely embarrassed. Also, of course, very frustrating, since the footage concentrated on the clothes, rather than Anna!

But, do we think that Anna was well advised  to act as the background music to a fashion show to present new material?  How many new people will she attract this way?

Peter .... I am not sure it will attract many new fans, and introducing new songs at something like this is highly questionable.

But I expect Burberry paid well and Anna has,nt really done much lately, so , at least it has given her some exposure , and got her back in the public eye . 

  Hopefully some proper shows , for her fans, to follow this year..

I really really liked whip the night and I'm very excited if this is the direction she's going in musically for the next record. I loved it - so different. :)

Editing to add that also, fashion shows generally have good reach, especially in the industry. we know she's played them before and as shallow as the fashion world can seem sometimes, the actual shows can often be more artistic than not and we know Anna's music is very art-based. So I think it'll be cool and hopefully means we're getting more stuff soon.

Yes Em.  I am sure you are right.    At least it is a step in the right direction, and Anna seems to have come out of her long hibernation  :)
