Hunted will also see Calvi team up with Joe Talbot of IDLES, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Julia Holter for new versions of Calvi's Hunter tracks.

The first single to be released from Hunted is Calvi's new version of "Don't Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy", featuring Courtney Barnett.

Speaking about Hunted and working with Barnett, Calvi explains, "During a break from touring I went back and listened to the first recordings I ever made of Hunter. These recordings capture the very moment I first wrote these songs, and recorded them on my own, in my attic studio. I find something especially intimate about sharing these most private recordings with my favourite singers and asking them to lend their voices and artistic sensibility. Courtney Barnett is an amazing artist. Her voice and guitar playing together are mind blowing. Her ability to connect the profound to the smallest moments of human experience is the unique talent of a true artist."

Barnett adds of the collaboration, "Anna is a completely awe-inspiring performer, it’s impossible to take your eyes off her onstage. I love her songwriting for its beautiful and perfect balance between aggression and tenderness."
