Anna , New album and Tour
« on: December 22, 2017, 10:16:39 AM »


  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  :)

First festival date announced:

Festival Saint Denis - June 20th, 2018

Quote
MERCREDI 20 JUIN 2018 - 20:30 • BASILIQUE DE SAINT-DENIS
DAVID BOWIE – BLACKSTAR

Anna Calvi, chant
Anja Plaschg, chant
s.t.a.r.g.a.z.e, ensemble

David Bowie a toujours été un inventeur formel et son dernier « opus », Blackstar, arrangé pour l’ensemble Stargaze et les voix à la fois rock et poignantes, de Anna Calvi et Amanda Palmer, le prouve encore de magistrale façon.

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.
Mox nox.

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.

Happy Christmas/happymid-winter festival everyone, and 2018 looks like it’s going to be great!

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 ...!
