ANOHNI, the lead singer from Antony and the Johnsons, has collaborated with Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never on “4 DEGREES.” It is 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. To support the Paris climate conference, ongoing this December, ANOHNI releases “4 DEGREES,” the first single from her upcoming album HOPELESSNESS.
"4 DEGREES” emerged earlier this 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.”
ANOHNI’s “4 DEGREES” is available today via Rough Trade. ANOHNI, Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never will play select performances in the months to come. More shows will be announced soon, along with more information about this collaboration and ANOHNI’s HOPELESSNESS.
