Video of the Week: Anna Calvi/David Byrne’s Cover of “Strange Weather”

May 31st, 2014 in Music


As we’ve written, Britain’s classically-trained Anna Calvi is one of the most talented and dynamic artists to emerge in recent years.  Calvi will next month release (on Domino) a five-track covers EP entitled Strange Weather featuring covers of songs by David Bowie, Keren Ann, Suicide, and inventive newcomers FKA Twigs and Connan Mockasin.  This week Calvi released the outstanding official video for the title track, a cover of the Keren Ann original, on which Calvi has teamed up with some dude named David Byrne.  The cover is stunningly beautiful (who knew Byrne could falsetto so well?) and the video is a heart-rending ‘scape of New York City.  Check it out below.  And after listen to the EP’s opening track, a unique new take on the mesmerizing FKA Twigs’ Papi Pacify.  You can pre-order Strange Weather HERE.
