The track is the second preview of ‘Hunted’, a new collaborative reimagination of Calvi’s 2019 album ‘Hunter’.
The album was announced last month with a new version of ‘Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy’, featuring Courtney Barnett. Listen to ‘Eden’ ft Charlotte Gainsbourg below.
Speaking about the collaboration, Calvi says: “Charlotte Gainsbourg has taught me so much as a singer, in how the most quiet of utterances can be the most dramatic and powerful of all.
“When I was writing Eden I had Charlotte’s voice in my head – there’s a secrecy and quiet power to this song that always made me think of her. It’s a dream come true to have collaborated with her.”
Anna Calvi picked up an award for Best TV Series supported by 19 Crimes for Peaky Blinders at last week’s NME Awards 2020, alongside Harry Kirton, who plays Finn Shelby in the series.
Calvi created the music for the recent fifth series of the show, and recently appeared to confirm that she will also be working on the soundtrack for Season 6.
“I’m excited to get back into that Peaky world. It was such an amazing experience,” she told NME recently.
Speaking to NME last summer after her appearance at the first Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival, Calvi said that her experience of writing the score “wasn’t difficult, but a lot of fun” – and she entered the mindset of the characters.
“It was incredible for it not to be about me and to really try and get into another character,” said Calvi. “When I was doing it, I really felt like I was him. I really got into the mindset of Tommy Shelby. You’re almost a shadow to the character.”
