Anna Calvi has made her long-awaited comeback by unveiling the first new single from her new album ‘Hunter’ along with a lengthy UK tour. Check out ‘Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy’ along with tour dates below.

After announcing a short string of intimate European dates due to kick off this month, the multi Mercury Prize nominee has now announced that her third album ‘Hunter’ will be released via Domino on August 31.

Produced by the legendary Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Grinderman), the album has been launched by the fiery and thunderous battlecry of new single ‘Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy’, complete with a stunning and dramatic new video directed by Kendrick Lamar collaborator William Kennedy and choreographed by Aaron Sillis, who has worked with the likes of fka Twigs.

“I’ve waited five years for this moment, I’ve waited until I felt this music was right, that I could stand behind it and feel it’s the best and most honest art I could possibly make,” she said, introducing the record. “I gave everything to this record, all my love, all my passion, every inch of me is found in this music. Now I let it go and I hope it finds you. Thank you for being so patient, thank you for being there.

“Primal and beautiful, vulnerable and strong, this is my record, ‘Hunter’.”

“‘Hunter’ is the embodiment of the feeling of truly letting go,” reads Calvi’s statement for the album. “For the songwriter and virtuosic guitarist, it was a catharsis, an opportunity to be more truthful than ever.”

It continues: “‘Hunter’ is a visceral album exploring sexuality and breaking the laws of gender conformity. A queer and a feminist record, it is galvanising in its hunt for freedom. It was important to Calvi that it was as vulnerable as it is strong; as beautiful as it is harsh; as much about the hunted as it is about the hunter. But she’s careful not to characterise any of these traits as “masculine” or “feminine” – the whole point is that one person, of any gender, can be both.

“The power is in the contrast itself; in the way she oscillates between extremes, sounding freer than ever before. She wanted to express herself while being “free from the story that either gender is given, free from worrying how people would judge me on what I want to do with my body and myself. For me, that’s quite a utopian vision.”
