My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross, ANOHNI’s 6th studio album, shape-shifts through a broad range of subject matter to express a world view. Through a personal lens, ANOHNI addresses loss of loved ones, inequality, alienation, acceptance, cruelty, ecocide, devastation wrought by Abrahamic theologies, Future Feminism, and the possibility that we might yet transform our ways of thinking, our spiritual ideas, our societal structures, and our relationships with the rest of nature.
On her first full album since 2016’s HOPELESSNESS, she explains the creative process was painstaking, yet also inspired, joyful, and intimate, a renewal and a renaming of her response to the world as she sees it. “Some of these songs respond to global and environmental concerns first voiced in popular music over 50 years ago.
”My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross is a record both personal and inextricably political, demonstrating music’s unique capacity to bring harmony to competing, sometimes contradictory, elements. “For me, there’s no heavenly respite; Creation is a spectral and feminine continuum, and our souls are an inalienable part of nature,” says ANOHNI.

“By asking her audience to connect intimately in exchange for a piece of herself, Anohni presents a reminder that there is a human behind the materials we consume, just like there is an Earth from which we were born and from which we harm without thought.
