I'm very happy with this beautiful new 'Antony song'. To me, Antony's collaborations with Current 93/David Tibet and Michael Cashmore, are the best! :) ♥

it is a beautiful song, though the lyrics are so complicated and long i don't fully understand them. I need to listen to it more

The lyrics are also difficult to me. Here you have them, maybe it helps for a better understanding:

Mourned winter then
In the middle of harsh day
I saw the Moon Her
Beaming as the Queen
Shook out Her broken dawn
And kissed him tenderly. 
Shook down from Her many stars 
Drifting seeds to sleep sowing 
Fields of spring clover dreaming of
A night bursting with milk and signs
Of coded silent planets, ices and suns
Touched Her finger to Her heart
And smiled, “I am in you always
The pulse in your blood the fire
In your salt the flame in your gem”
Like the night then full of all
UtterLoveUttered, springing
From the sleepless seas soaring
Over muddy towers grey graves
The hope light in your eyes
Moved open the Spheres and 
Spelled -Summer dust
Heard that jeweled night 
Spill open a thousand stars
Held your body like the wind
And felt the shudder 
Of your mouth sing like ----- Mars 
Resurrect me in your stillness
With wingbeats from the SunFlowers
Towering over the diurnal leaves
Brush your kind face
With doves and starlings
Sweep down like bells on your kiss
If we count the cost of all we stole
From perfect earth and transcendent stars
Fog and ForgetMeNot
Goddesses awake in trees and 
Seafoam licked by the shells
And soaring gulls - in 
That beauty set in a hollow 
World splits words and flies in the
Sapphire face and I do never
Shall never forget that Love
That first sang of stars and
First sealed jars of LambLight
Planted groves of sparrows
The buzz of night under the 
Sunny skull of mercy
Which breathed out your history
Before your eyes awoke to
“No proofs” or “proofs”
“Letters” or “no letters”
In the dead hands of dead papers
Which have long since left the central
Dance and in dull dull trance
Squealing “I ate the feast” and
Then “I am the beast”
And slid into the bloodstreams like a swamp
Nude to the word and the world
Naked to the ethereal city's sweep
And ate our home and throne
-----------  we are as free in
The night twined with vines
And SunBabies we are free
In the day lined with tiny moons
I awoke and stared at the sun
Falling into the mouth of those moons
Heard the seagulls squawking and mouses
Squeaking of another world and other waves
Fox and vixen in the sunlit night inside
The moonlit palace and swift as BirdSong
Smiled the babble and girders away
Sparks flying out of the beaks soaring above
The stunted city brunched blindly under 
massed stars
Over the chalk hill driven on
By angelic yells.

Of course lyrics are very important. But often so abstract and difficult...I always listen to the music and the beautiful voice of Antony at first...But I admit the texts deserve attention too...

I agree with you, Nanda. Even not knowing a word of English Antony's vocals are filled with such emotion.

Fine examples of this are Everything is new or Fletta, with barely no lyrics (or lyrics in Icelandic) and lot of passion in them. I remember the first time I listened to the studio version of Everythings is new I started crying like a baby, even if I had known the song from live performances over the years.

That said, afterwards I'm obsessive with the lyrics too
