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.

Dazzling, dramatic, creative, groundbreaking, astonishing. I loved this album the first time that I heard it. This may be Anohni's best work yet. Anohni has a lovely voice as she sings the intense and beautiful songs that she's composed. The lyrics are thoughtful and moving. And what exciting rhythms and combinations of instruments! Listen to this Youtube version of "4 degrees" to get an idea of her stunning work: [...]
Anohni is a musical genius! A treasure. Undoubtedly the best album of the year. Her voice and sounds carry me to another place…an amazing place. If you like or love any of her previous work, I highly suggest purchasing this as fast as you can. I heart.
Songs about war, global warming, paranoia, and general 21st century anxiety. It's the sound of someone realizing without a doubt in their mind that they don't belong on this earth. It's electro-pop, but it sounds absolutely apocalyptic.
