Anna Calvi has revealed the title track of her new album, 'Hunter'.

The song references wearing leather, talks of "one more taste, one more time" and how "nothing lasts", and much like the record's previously shared single, Don't Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy, perfectly blends emotional and sexual themes.

Calvi explains the track is about “exploring a more subversive sexuality, which goes further than what is expected of a woman in our patriarchal heteronormative society.” She has elaborated in a note you can read below.

The follow up to 2013's 'One Breath' will arrive through Domino on August 31, with a UK and Ireland tour set to start on September 27 in Belfast. She will also call in Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, Brighton and Bristol between September 28 and October 6, before heading to Europe.

Next year Calvi will also play a one-off London show at the Roundhouse on February 7.

Anna Calvi - Hunter (Album Review)
Mon 17 Sep 2018
Anna Calvi’s voice, an enormous wailing thing, is the dominant presence on her first album in five years, ‘Hunter’. It takes over and demolishes anything that stands in her path. In many ways, the record’s message does the same thing. Don’t fall into the trap of using gender stereotypes. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable. Be yourself.
