Antony Announces New Album Hopelessness, Co-Produced With Oneohtrix Point Never & Hudson Mohawke
Recording under the Antony & The Johnsons name, Antony Hegarty has always come off as a magnificent torch-song balladeer type. But Hegarty has also done some amazing work singing over electronic tracks, as on Hercules & Love Affair’s “Blind” or her duets with Björk. And on the forthcoming album Hopelessness, we’ll hear what happens when Hegarty makes an entire album like that. Working under the name ANOHNI, Hegarty is co-producing her new album Hopelessness, her first since the 2010 Antony & The Johnsons album Swanlights, with Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never. On her Facebook, Hegarty calls the LP “an electronic record with some sharp teeth,” and that seems like something worth getting excited about. The album is in production now, and we don’t know when it’ll be out, but that’s the album cover above.
