The Quickie: Antony & the Johnsons

It’s official. October 5 is the day Antony and the Johnsons will release their new album, Swanlights, which will be bundled with a 144-page art book of Antony Hegarty’s paintings, collages, photography and writing. As written on his blog, these are the things he’s thinking about and which might make it into the new album: “circles of light, the Arctic, witches, mammals, Samoa, the slavery of addiction and viral late stage capitalism, woman power, families treasuring their transgendered children, the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change, feral intuition and a global new two-spirit alliance, forests, oxygen, carbon, patriarchal religions and heirarchies that would rather catalyze apocalypse than admit that centuries of male domination have almost destroyed us, a feminist revolution might save our world.”
