Anna Calvi has unveiled plans for her second album 'One Breath'.
A turbulent mixture of impassioned songwriting, sweeping arrangements and often challenging instrumentation, Anna Calvi's debut album was a tour de force. Rightly nominated for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize, the songwriter took time out last year to construct a follow up.
Produced by John Congleton in Blackbox Studios, France and mixed in Dallas, Texas, USA, the material for new album 'One Breath' took a year to write but was recorded in just a few short weeks.
An intense process, but one which matches the apparently deeply personal material contained therein. "One Breath is the moment before you’ve got to open yourself up, and it’s about how terrifying that is" Anna Calvi explains. "It’s scary and it’s thrilling. It’s also full of hope, because whatever has to happen hasn’t happened yet."
Available from October 7th, 'One Breath' will be available on CD, vinyl and digital download - the first 500 people who pre-order the CD will receive a signed copy.
