Antony and the Johnsons will release the “Aeon”/”Crazy in Love” 7″ single on August 4th. “Aeon” is one of the highlights of the critical and commercial smash album “The Crying Light” which debuted at #1 on the European chart. The band gave “Aeon” its television debut earlier this year on The Late Show with David Letterman. And Antony and the Johnsons’ earnest and impassioned cover of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love”, a long time live favorite, is being released officially for the first time.
The first 200 pre-orders the 7” of “Aeon” will receive a copy of the recent issue of Zoetrope: All Story, which features the full art direction of Antony. Zoetrope is Francis Ford Coppola’s quarterly magazine devoted to the best new short-fiction and one-act plays.
The band is currently on a European leg of their world tour. The summer shows see them playing with some of the most esteemed symphonies in Europe in prestigious venues including La Carre in Amsterdam, Manchester Opera House, and the Grand Theatre Romain de Fouviere in Lyon.
