The Anchoress - Versions

This is a pre-order item and is expected 6th October 2023.

Following two critically acclaimed albums, the Elton John championed, Welsh multi-instrumentalist and producer The Anchoress (aka Catherine Anne Davies) will release an album of modern re-workings, ‘Versions’ this autumn via the recently relaunched Drowned in Sound label.

Compiling 10 re-imaginings of alternative songs by the likes of Depeche Mode, The Cure, Nirvana, Nico and Halsey, all produced and mixed by Davies, Versions is a Cat Power-like collection of songs. The record includes a take on Manic Street Preachers’ ‘This Is Yesterday’ which she performed with the band at Isle of Wight and Glastonbury 2023.

The album will appear on limited edition vinyl and gatefold CD, alongside a full digital release and will be pressed on Eco-Mix vinyl. As Davies explains, “each record pressed will be a completely unique combination, reworked from leftover wax pellets which feels very apt for the concept of the album, as well as being a more eco-friendly method of production. I love the idea that, like the collection of songs being pieces of other people’s imaginations, this record is quite literally made up of unused parts of other records.”

‘Versions’ was produced, mixed, and engineered by The Anchoress and mastered by Jon Astley (Peter Gabriel, Tori Amos) and also features guest appearances from multi-instrumentalist Charlie Cawood (Medieval Baebes, Lost Crowns, Knife World)
