Martina Topley-Bird – 'Anything' Video

Following her Mercury Music Prize nomination, Independiente-signed singer/songwriter Martina Topley-Bird releases ‘Anything’, the second single to be lifted from her critically acclaimed debut album, Quixotic’, on September 1st.

A stripped back, sensuous track, ‘Anything’ perfectly showcases Martina’s unique vocal style. Laid-back yet emotional, this bewitching song is set to be one of the tracks of the summer. The single features a dvd of the stunning video, directed by renowned promo maker Floria Sigismondi, and a powerful remix by Vanden Plas.

Four years in the making and featuring production credits from the likes of David Holmes (‘Too Tough To Die’) and Tricky (‘Ragga’), ‘Quixotic’ also contains string arrangements from David Arnold (Of James Bond and Bjork fame) on ‘Days Of A Gun’ and guitars by Josh Homme and backing vocals by Mark Lanegan from ‘Queens of the Stone Age’ on debut single ‘Need One’.

The acclaim for Quixotic has already been widespread:

'original and authentic as anything you’ll hear this year-with its mix of soul, jazz, old time folk and vintage blues…this is an astonishing record’ – The independent

'Absolutely Sublime’ – OM Observer Magazine

'Essential’ – Time Out

'Classy, laid back, so lush it’s a wonder the sleeve isn’t made out of velvet…exceptionally well sung’ Q Magazine

'An early candidate for debut of the year’ Mojo

'They haven’t made voices like this since the war ‘– D Telegraph

'A collection of songs that stand together as timeless classics all pinned together by that voice’ – I-D

Martina plays her debut solo tour in late July culminating at London’s Scala on July 29th and followed by Queens Square, Bristol (Supporting Massive Attack) on August 25th.
