2016 EU 180 gram LP+CD -Solo Debut from Lead Singer of Antony and the Johnsons Co-Produced by Oneohtrix Point Never & Hudson Mohawke!
ANOHNI has collaborated with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke on the artist's latest work, Hopelessness. Late last year, ANOHNI, the lead singer from Antony and the Johnsons, released "4 Degrees," a bombastic dance track celebrating global boiling and collapsing biodiversity. Rather than taking refuge in good intentions, ANOHNI gives voice to the attitude sublimated within her behavior as she continues to consume in a fossil fuel-based economy.
The song emerged earlier last year in live performances. As discussed by ANOHNI: "I have grown tired of grieving for humanity, and I also thought I was not being entirely honest by pretending that I am not a part of the problem. '4 Degrees' is kind of a brutal attempt to hold myself accountable, not just valorize my intentions, but also reflect on the true impact of my behaviors."
The album, Hopelessness, to be released world wide by Secretly Canadian in May 2016, is a dance record with soulful vocals and lyrics addressing surveillance, drone warfare, and ecocide. A radical departure from the singer's symphonic collaborations, the album seeks to disrupt assumptions about popular music through the collision of electronic sound and highly politicized lyrics.
