This is one of the seven tracks set to feature on Calvi’s newly reworked Hunted…
Since Anna Calvi announced Hunted last month—a reworking of her Mercury Prize nominated third album from 2018—Calvi has been distilling her tracks down to their bare essence, with the help of artists such as Coutney Barnett, Joe Talbot (IDLES) and Julia Holter.
Having previously shared the Coutney Barnett collaboration, Calvi has now shared the Hunted version of Eden featuring Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Calvi said of the song: “Charlotte Gainsbourg has taught me so much as a singer, in how the most quiet of utterances can be the most dramatic and powerful of all. When I was writing Eden, I had Charlotte’s voice in my head – there’s a secrecy and quiet power to this song that always made me think of her. It’s a dream come true to have collaborated with her.”
