thecreeksmall “The Creek,” one of the pieces included in the Swanlights hardcover art book

We previously announced the release of Antony and the Johnsons’  album and 144-page hardcover book, Swanlights in May. Since then, the date has been changed to October 12th in North America and the 11th in Europe. To the devotees-we assure you its worth the week-long wait!

Björk joins Antony on the album with the duet “Flétta.” The two have already collaborated on “The Dull Flame of Desire” and “My Juvenile” from Björk’s 2007 album Volta.
