Anna Calvi "Sing to Me" (video)
Anna Calvi's self-titled album from 2011 was nominated for the Mercury Prize, and with the follow-up, One Breath, due out on October 8 through Domino, the English songwriter has shared a video for the track "Sing to Me."

The song is an hushed ballad with a sparse arrangement that swells to a cinematic, orchestral climax in its second half. The accompanying visuals are enigmatic and artsy, as we see a string of intriguingly obtuse shots of deserts, vintage finery and religious iconography. It was directed by Emma Nathan.
