We are so happy to share with you the beautiful and moving new video for Antony and the Johnson’s “Thank You For Your Love.” The video includes Super 8 footage that Antony shot when he first moved to New York in the early 90’s. It’s a step back in time to when we did not know Antony, where we can see where he was and contemplate where his art would go. Artistically it moves forward while simultaneously looking back.
More info on the Thank You for Your Love EP and the upcoming LP Swanlights after the jump.
