On April 26th, Antony and the Johnsons will release their Swanlights EP  digitally and on 10” on Secretly Canadian, with the CD version to come. The 10” vinyl will be available on Record Store Day, April 16. 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.”

The EP has a remix of the title track by Oneohtrix Point Never and two exclusive b-sides.  Keeping it in the family, Antony’s sister, Sara Hegarty, directed the “Swanlgihts” video, with excerpts from the forthcoming film “The Last Hymn”, featuring Sierra Paris.

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 performance artist Abramovic’s life and career, from her Serbian childhood to her work as an artist. The film features original and traditional music, including songs written and performed by Antony.
