You know who has been blowing the trumpet for The Anchoress recently? Elton John. He is certainly a man of taste as her sophomore album The Art Of Losing is (spoiler?) in my top 5 albums of 2021 so far – is it too early to be making lists, I just love making lists.

Now one of the record’s best tracks Show Your Face has been reborn, rejigged, whatever the muso phrase is and it is just as beautiful, but gives a different perspective, a little less Mansun, a little more Tori Amos? Both those artists used to have amazing acoustic versions of classics on their b-sides so The Anchoress is in damn good company again. I say so! Elton fvcking John says so!
