Anna B Savage released her wonderful second album, in|FLUX, today. Made with Mike Lindsay of Tunng and LUMP, it's an earthy, lustly marvel, mixing the acoustic with the electronic and emotions that are always running high, with Anna's dextrous, elastic voice at the center. (Read our review.) You can listen to the whole thing and watch the title track's video below.

We asked Anna to tell us more about the album, and she sent us a list with 10 inspirations behind it, which includes collaborators, tools, books, music, coffee shops, and more. Read her list and commentary below.

Anna will start her UK tour next week. All dates are below.

1. Transpersonal Therapy
I’ve been in it for the last two years. It’s been monumental.

2. The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron
I wasn’t doing the programme at the time, but I was doing the Morning Pages, which allowed me to get the nay-saying out before heading in to the studio.

3. BMIR Fall 2018
I went to the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and fell in love with 20+ people all at the same time. Incredible creatives in their own rights, I’m still reeling from the experience this period of time had on me.

4. Colour Palette by Lottie Canto
Lottie gifted me one of these after my show in Brum last year. It’s personalised and painfully beautiful, and the sound of it was integral to the album. Lottie’s kindness is also hugely influential to me.

5. Taylor GS Mini
I was playing this a whole load around the time I wrote a lot of these songs, until I sat on it and cracked the body. I cried. There’s no electric lead guitar on this album, a first for me.

6. Trees. Canadian Larches.
The poplars at the bottom of my parents garden. The concept of crown shyness. How they make me feel.

7. Mike Lindsay’s work ethic
I am so inspired by his playful, positive outlook on making things. “Making nice things with nice people” (my new years resolution) is basically encapsulated in working with Mike.

8. Dark chocolate digestive biscuits
Although not too many and not too early or you’ll fall asleep.

9. Spitfire Audio BBC Symphony Orchestra plugin
I used this in my first ever attempt to produce and write at the same time (or use a DAW). This was the skeleton upon which I wrote/produced the demo for inFLUX (originally called ‘tuba’).

10. Curve Coffee Shop in Margate

11. Lists
I bloody love a list. In my orange Leuchtturm bullet journal.l
