Following last-year's critically acclaimed Songs From The Coalmine Canary (produced by Antony, of '& the Johnsons'), Little Annie is releasing her second album on Durtro/Jnana/Southern - When Good Things Happen To Bad Pianos, produced by long-time co-conspirator Paul Wallfisch.
The duo has spent 2007 bringing sold-out audiences to tears from Athens to Copenhagen - with stops at the Donau Festival and supporting Marc Almond in Barcelona along the way.
Annie & Antony's song "Strange Love" was picked by Levi's for world-wide TV and cinema advertising and is currently running in over a dozen countries. The clip has since won 'Best Use Of Music In Advertising' at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.
When Good Things Happen To Bad Pianos sees the duo pouring their hearts into other people's songs, alchemically transforming songs like U2's "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and Tina Turner's signature belter "Private Dancer" into gloriously heartbreaking torch-songs and poignant, understated ballads.
Little Annie & Paul Wallfisch first performed together at Joe's Pub in 2001 with an enraptured Dr. John, sitting front and center, asking the diva out for a date after the show.
Praise for Songs From The Coalmine Canary:
"This is impeccably cool music, maybe best served with a chilled cocktail in a dark bar (with mirrors on the walls) under blue light." - Boomkat
"These smoky-blues arrangements are infinitely more original than Kate Nash├óΓé¼Γäós teeth-grinding tripe" - The Skinny
