2.      I'm The Man, That Will Find You (Connan Mockasin) - featuring David Byrne
3.      Ghost Rider (Suicide)
4.      Strange Weather (Keren Ann) - Anna Calvi and David Byrne
5.      Lady Grinning Soul (David Bowie)
 
David Byrne said the following on working with Anna:
 
'I'm a big fan of Anna's two records... and I caught her tour after her first record at Bowery Ballroom here in NY. 'Epic' I think is the word that is often used. So when Thomas Bartlett said he was going to be in the studio producing an EP of Anna doing covers I immediately agreed to join in. I was invited to suggest songs and I loved the last Keren Ann record and I thought Strange Weather had a haunting quality that might suit Anna.... so we did that, and Anna then suggested I join in on the Connan Mockasin track she'd done too.'
