The Anchoress - Versions

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 White and Glastonbury 2023.

‘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)
