Anna Calvi is back with a brand new album – ‘Hunter’ lands today, Friday 31st August.
“I was feeling very frustrated at the depictions of women that I see in culture and the way that these false stereotypes are drilled into everyone of what a man or woman is meant to be,” Anna says of the record’s genesis in the September issue of Dork, out now.
“The way that culture depicts women is often nothing like the women that I know. So instead of seeing a woman as being hunted, which is often what we see being depicted, I liked the idea of a woman as the ‘Hunter’ who’s the protagonist of her own story, going out seeking pleasure for her body – or any other way – without a sense of shame.”
The full-length will see Anna hit the road this September and October, and play a headliner at London’s Roundhouse on 7th February.
