The British wailer Anna Calvi, whose self-titled debut album has already turned up on a few year-end best-of lists, has lately been doing an unhinged live cover of TV On The Radio’s “Wolf Like Me.” She’s now recorded a studio version of that song, and we’ve got it for you below. Also below, check out two expertly filmed live clips, in which she covers both “Wolf Like Me” and the Burt Bacharach-cowritten “Baby It’s You,” which was famously recorded by the Shirelles, the Beatles, and Smith. We’ve also got Calvi’s tour dates.
