Pretty remarkable this... ANOHNI, the singer of Antony and the Johnsons, announces the release of her new album, HOPELESSNESS, collaboration with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke.

“Anohni has arrived at the high table of electronic nowness. She has moved from the lush pastoral piano modern compositional landscape framing her voice into a more immediate world of dance-mutated electronica. A lyrical content that is deadly serious, the words and phrases of someone struggling to come to terms with the violence and shattering armaments of the human race violating and obliterating itself. Wondering about complicity and one’s place on this poisoned planet. Was pop ever so revelatory or so profound?” - Geoff Travis

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.
