Antony & the Johnsons Debut Swanlights Video, Prep Swanlights 10-inch Vinyl EP for Record Store Day Release


Today Antony and the Johnsons premiered a new video for “Swanlights,” directed by Antony’s sister Sara Hegarty. The video contains excerpts from the forthcoming film The Last Hymn featuring Sierra Paris. Antony has described the concept of swanlights as “the reflection of light on the surface of the water at night and the moment when a spirit jumps out of a body and turns into a violet ghost.”

In other Antony news, electronic music duo Matmos has joined the team for the forthcoming production of “The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic” which includes Antony, Marina Abramovic, Willem Dafoe, and Robert Wilson. The show features scenes from Abramovic’s life and career, from her Serbian childhood to her work as a performance artist. It also features original and traditional music, including songs written and performed by Antony.

Look for Antony and the Johnsons’ Swanlights EP on 10-inch vinyl for Record Store Day April 16. The EP includes a remix of the title track by Oneohtrix Point Never as well as two exclusive b-sides.
