Anohni will release Paradise, the companion EP to last year's Hopelessness, one of the most critically acclaimed and discussed albums of 2016, via Rough Trade Records. In collaboration with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke, on Paradise, Anohni seeks to support activist conversations and disrupt assumptions about popular music through the collision of electronic sound and highly politicized lyrics. Paradise includes new songs as well as material recently debuted live. On the title track, Paradise, Anohni voices ecstatic alienation, describing a dystopian life filled with horror, awe, comfort and threat. She expresses a sense of disembodiment: "Myself, I'm here... not here, as a point of consciousness." The music is wild and invigorating with a heavy beat conceived by Hudson Mohawke and twisting vocal treatments by Daniel Lopatin. Nine portraits of women on the EP artwork reflect the feminine oracle that Anohni evoked in her live concert tour.

( 10" with CD Version.)

The revelry of 2016's 'Hopelessness' helped reinvent Anohni (f/k/a Antony and The Johnsons) in the mold of staunch political agitator. Self-aware and self-flagellating, Anohni speaks of deep concern for our very livelihood, as a species and as a civil society. With critical acclaim from The New York Times, The Guardian, The New Yorker, FADER and many more, 'Hopelessness' came to represent a new and necessary musical language.

Anohni's 'Paradise' EP is the extension, into 2017, of a language of protest and distress. The songs on here -- already featured in her arresting live performances -- were made during the same sessions as 'Hopelessness', but rather than trimmings or bonus material, they are, instead, unique touch points for old issues and newly minted geopolitical crises writ macabre.

Thank you Ricardo, for expanding the information as well as ever! 

I have a doubt on the track 4. In some webs it's called "Enemy", but in Pitchfork it appears as "You Are My Enemy". I wonder what the definitive title will be. It's not really important, it's just out of curiosity.

On the other hand, I'm going to miss "Indian Girls" one of the most shocking songs of Hopelesness, imo. It's so heartbreaking! I hope that Anohni releases it in the near future, somehow...

I agree with you, Rosa. Indian Girls was such a powerful song when performed live
