Following the success of last year’s The Crying Light, the Mercury Prize winning Antony and the Johnsons release their 4th album Swanlights on Secretly Canadian to heaps of critical praise.
Swanlights may be Antony's most wide-rangingly emotional work to date. It is a record that is at moments heartbreakingly tender, and at other times has a joyful gleam to its teeth. Included on the album is “Flétta”, an Icelandic duet with Antony’s fellow avant-garde singer/songwriter Björk.
A special edition, which includes a 144-page hardcover book of Antony’s paintings, collages, photography and writing , is also out today and available through Abrams Image.
