For months, we’ve been waiting breathlessly for former Antony And The Johnsons mastermind ANOHNI to release her new album HOPELESSNESS, which Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never co-produced. We’ve posted the early single “4 DEGREES,” and now we get to hear the new track “Drone Bomb Me,” which Hudson Mohawke produced. Annie Mac debuted the song on BBC Radio today. It’s written from the perspective of a kid whose family is killed by a drone strike, but it’s sung as a heartsick dance track. The great music-video auteur Nabil directed the video, which stars supermodel Naomi Campbell, who lip-syncs the song while weeping. Watch it below.
In other news, ANOHNI recently appeared on the French show Le Grand Journal, talking about things like gender identity. Watch her interview below.
HOPELESSNESS is out 5/6 on Secretly Canadian. The Nabil-directed “Drone Bomb Me” video, which stars Naomi Campbell, is coming tonight.
