Anna Calvi and David Byrne get all mysterious and moody in this new duet covering Keren Ann’s song ‘Strange Weather’. The song appears on Calvi’s new cover EP of the the same name due out on Domino 14.07.14.
David Byrne said the following on working with Anna:
‘I’m a big fan of Anna’s two records… and I caught her tour after her first record at Bowery Ballroom here in NY. ‘Epic’ I think is the word that is often used. So when Thomas Bartlett said he was going to be in the studio producing an EP of Anna doing covers I immediately agreed to join in. I was invited to suggest songs and I loved the last Keren Ann record and I thought Strange Weather had a haunting quality that might suit Anna…. so we did that, and Anna then suggested I join in on the Connan Mockasin track she’d done too.’
