Anna Calvi and David Byrne - Strange Weather (Official Video)
'Strange Weather', a cover of the Keren Ann original, is a stunning collaboration between Anna Calvi and David Byrne, and will be released on 14th July 2014.
The 5 track covers EP was produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Antony and the Johnsons, Sam Amidon) and recorded in New York. It features covers of tracks by Suicide, David Bowie, FKA twigs, Connan Mockasin and Keren Ann. The cover of Suicide's Ghost Rider was recorded with drummer Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley), and Nico Muhly contributes string arrangements to the EP opener, a deconstructed organic reworking of FKA twigs' 'Papi Pacify', which is available to stream here - https://soundcloud.com/annacalvi/papi-pacify
Directed in NYC by Alan Del Rio Ortiz.

A cover of Keren Ann's song of the same name, "Strange Weather" sees Calvi working with David Byrne. The intense, near-melodramatic recording is treated to some stark visuals in director Alan Del Rio Ortiz' clip, which follows an actress as she wanders New York's streets at night.
