Anohni, the singer of Antony and the Johnsons, announces the release of her new album, 'Hopelessness,' out on Rough Trade / Remote Control Records.
A collaboration with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke, 'Hopelessness' is a dance record with soulful vocals and lyrics addressing subjects including surveillance, drone warfare and ecocide. The album seeks to disrupt assumptions about popular music through the collision of electronic sound and highly politicized lyrics.
To coincide with the Climate Conference in Paris last December, Anohni released her debut single, "4 Degrees." The Guardian called it "Hugely affecting... instantly earns its place in the pantheon of great musical protests."
"Drone Bomb Me" is the beautiful yet brutal second single from 'Hopelessness.' As described by Anohni, "'Drone Bomb Me' is a love song written from the perspective of a young girl in Afghanistan whose family has been executed by unmanned U.S. drones. She dreams of being annihilated."
