Anna Calvi is teasing her return, posting a series of dramatic artwork to her Instagram account.
The singer previously hinted at new material at the end of last year. “I can’t risk rushing what I love, but I hope when it finds you, this music I’m making might give you something,” she tweeted.
Calvi then said that she was “very close” to completing her upcoming project back in December, adding: “See you in 2018”.
Now, the singer has uploaded various dark room, red-filtered images to her official Instagram page – with fans questioning whether the start of her next chapter is imminent. Check out the shots below.
Speaking of working on new material last year, she posted: “All I can do is wear what I create like a coat to cover me and protect me, and the deeper I fall into its arms the better it holds me.”

Calvi last released music in the form of her 2014 EP, ‘Strange Weather’. It followed the 2013 studio album ‘One Breath’, and her self-titled debut (2011).The covers release featured collaborations with Talking Heads icon David Byrne.
Byrne featured on a rendition of Mockasin’s 2013 single ‘I’m The Man, That Will Find You’, while versions of Bowie’s ‘Lady Grinning Soul’ and ‘Ghost Rider’ by Suicide also appeared.
The artist supported Morrissey at London’s 02 Arena off the back of her last full-length LP.
NME’s review of ‘One Breath’ claimed that Calvi had “created something all her own”. “There’s new confidence here, and a sense that she’s stretching herself musically and lyrically.”
