Premiere: Anna Calvi's 'One Breath' mixtape

Anna Calvi's got a new album out called 'One Breath', and it's a bold, tempestuous follow-up to her Mercury-nominated 2011 debut 'Anna Calvi', a huge landscape of complex instrumentation and gradually unfolding melodies occasionally punctured by eruptions of overwhelming passion. 

To celebrate its release, she's made an exclusive mixtape for Dummy packed full of inspirational tidbits. Expect ambient detours, choral interludes and lashings of meandering jazz: this is one to get comfortable for. Stream the mix here, and check the tracklist and Calvi's upcoming tour dates below.
