Scott Tomford Thank you for providing a soundtrack for these times, ANOHNI. Both pre- and post-election. Keep fighting. Favorite track: Drone Bomb Me.

Rich Hims Was pretty excited to hear the creative mind behind Antony and the Johnsons was releasing a new album, but after four or five listens, the strong opening is let down by the rest of the album, sadly a strong explanation why Anohni has ignored the Bandcamp recommendations regarding full album preview Favorite track: 4 Degrees.

Dylan Alford an inimitable voice—full of plaintive melancholy as well as righteous fury,—backed by impeccable production. This album impels and impresses upon us with singular urgency. Favorite track: Drone Bomb Me.

astaireboy Words cannot describe how profoundly beautiful the new Antony/ANOHNI release is. I was frightened when I heard about the new direction, but this is 100% Antony. Emotional. Stirring. Shivers down the spine. Achingly beautiful. There are few songs that can still bring me to tears, but when ANOHNI sings "I want to be the apple of your eyes." I can feel the salty brine falling down my cheek. Thank you Antony!!! Favorite track: Drone Bomb Me.

ALEX LOPES Antony really surprised everyone with this release. His soothing voice over the production from Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke (another great news about this album that a lot of people were kinda afraid if it was going to work that well) is something else.
My 2 favorite producers with my (now) favorite singer. This is a must-have for everyone that enjoys politically-charged, weird, awesome and experimental pop music. Favorite track: Drone Bomb Me.

Carl Creighton It feels like it's been a while since I heard something new that the 15 year-old me would have identified with, loved and grown up with. Thanks ANOHNI! Favorite track: Drone Bomb Me.

about

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. ANOHNI released “4 DEGREES,” the first single from her upcoming album HOPELESSNESS, to support the Paris climate conference this past December.

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," she said. “’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 on May 6th 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.  ANOHNI will present select concerts in Europe, Australia and the US in support of HOPELESSNESS this Summer.
