ANOHNI details ‘HOPELESSNESS,’ shares “Drone Bomb Me” video, premiering new live show
ANOHNI, the new and improved moniker of Antony Hegarty, is releasing her new album HOPELESSNESS on May 6. It was produced with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke, and features the fantastic single “4 Degrees” plus the newly-released “Drone Bomb Me.” This one’s even more proof that this record is one to look forward to (I said on our January Spotify show that it’s my most anticipated album of 2016, which probably hasn’t changed), and proof that this bold new direction suits her perfectly. The song’s got a video directed by Nabil, art directed by Riccardo Tisci, and starring Naomi Campbell. Check it out below. Album tracklist below too, and that’s the artwork above.
ANOHNI will present the world premiere of the HOPELESSNESS live show in NYC during the Red Bull Music Academy, and her band will include Oneohtrix Point Never. That takes place May 18 and 19 at the Park Avenue Armory. Here’s the show description:
Red Bull Music Academy and Park Avenue Armory are proud to present the world premiere of Anohni’s live show for her new album Hopelessness on two consecutive evenings in New York. Featuring original films, and a band that includes Oneohtrix Point Never, the celebrated singer, composer and visual artist will bring her politically charged masterpiece to audiences in an environment unlike any other. With her haunting work in Antony and the Johnsons and her flooring contributions to the Hercules & Love Affair project, Anohni has established herself as one of the most fragile and fiercest vocalists around. Expect to see another breathtaking chapter to her story take shape for the first time ever on May 18th and 19th at Park Avenue Armory, as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York and the Armory’s Spring-Fall 2016 programmatic offerings.
Tickets go on sale March 24.
