Anna Calvi is excited to present the video for Desire, the latest single from her self-titled debut released earlier this year. Directed by Aoife McArdle, the dark chanteuse haunts us once again with stunning visuals and evocative scenes set in flickering lights.

Desire is available now on 7” and via digital download, backed with a reworking of Leonard Cohen’s Joan Of Arc. You can stream her virtuosic instrumental b-side here:
