Shares new video “Hotel” in collaboration with choral ensemble Institute Collective

With a full UK tour this month, Anna B Savage is sharing a new video of “Hotel”, recorded in collaboration with the Institute Collective, a contemporary vocal ensemble founded by composer, producer and vocal arranger Hughie Gavin. The group are a collection of artists in there own right who come together to collaborate and perform with other artists.

Speaking about working together, Hughie Gavin of the Institute Collective said “Anna sent over a few songs that she thought would lend themselves to choral arrangements and straight away I knew I wanted to work on ‘Hotel’. I think it was because the song is such a journey. It’s almost like three songs in one. I approached the arrangement by following and accentuating the dynamic contours of the song, aiming to create some beautiful and dramatic moments whilst making sure there was lots of space for Anna’s incredible voice.” 

Adding to this, Savage said “I jumped at the chance to work with Institute Collective. With two professional choral parents and a life long love of choirs I knew this would be an incredibly special thing. I’m so thankful to Hughie for the huge amount of work he put in to this. I had to desperately hold the tears in. I hope you’ll agree, this is magic.”

 Anna B Savage uses the power of intimacy to add such depth, value, and emotion into her vision. With this powerful collective reinforcing, lifting and adding this injection of harmony and this array of melody whilst only the guitar notes amplify within the space.

The new ensemble will move you, consume you. The intricate notes and the powerful lyrics that Anna fearlessly delivers, the stunning enrichment from the sweeter melodies, it all emphasizes the intensity of this compelling musician. A sincere and raw arrangement oozing fragility, personality, and dripping with such affection. Anna B Savage crafts yet again another explosive world focusing on the charming charisma of the dynamic and influential vocal harmony from Anna.

Anna B Savage recently released her EP ‘These Dreams‘, which followed on from the release of her debut album A Common Turn‘ earlier this year via City Slang. Before this, Savage released her 2015 debut EP, which was praised by press internationally including NPR and The Guardian, and quickly caught the attention of Father John Misty and later Jenny Hval, both of whom took Savage under their wing and took her on tour.
