Today, Anna Calvi shares the title track from her much anticipated third studio album, Hunter, due for release on 31st August 2018 via Domino. “Hunter” sees Calvi celebrating the transcendent aspects of pleasure and finding a community and home in queer spaces. According to Calvi, the track is about “exploring a more subversive sexuality, which goes further than what is expected of a woman in our patriarchal heteronormative society.”
You can listen to Hunter as part of the Shoot Music New Releases playlist.

“Hunter” follows the release of the album’s first single, “Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy”. The accompanying video was directed by rising star and recent Kendrick Lamar collaborator, William Kennedy, and choreographed by Aaron Sillis (FKA Twigs).
Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Grinderman) at Konk Studios in London with some further production in LA, Hunter was recorded with Anna’s band – Mally Harpaz on various instruments and Alex Thomas on drums – with the addition of Adrian Utley from Portishead on keys and Martyn Casey from The Bad Seeds on bass. It has a new rawness, a primal energy into which Calvi pushes the limits of her guitar and voice beyond anything she’s recorded before.
