ANOHNI has just released "Drone Bomb Me," the first video for the second track we've heard off her upcoming album HOPELESSNESS. The video was directed by Nabil Elderkin and stars Naomi Campbell, who lip syncs the song's lyrics. Annie Mac debuted the new song today on BBC Radio.
HOPELESSNESS is the fifth album from ANOHNI, whose previous four releases came under the name Antony and the Johnsons. This will be the first album released under her new moniker. Last November, the first single off the upcoming album, "4 DEGREES," was released. The record is produced by Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix.
ANOHNI made waves earlier this year when she became the first transgender performer to be nominated for an Oscar. Later, her performance was cut from the show, due to "time constraints," Variety reported. She and J. Ralph were nominated for Best Original Song for "Manta Rey," from the documentary Racing Extinction. She went on to pen a letter entitled, "WHY I'M NOT ATTENDING THE ACADEMY AWARDS" and posted it on her website.
HOPELESSNESS will arrive in stores and on the internet May 6th. She made the announcement via Facebook, and also revealed the tracklist.'HOPELESSNESS' Tracklisting:
1. Drone Bomb Me
2. 4 Degrees
3. Watch Me
5. I Don't Love You Anymore
7. Violent Man
