On “Thank You For Your Love”, Antony expresses a soul-infused cry of gratitude, but the song progresses into urgency, leaving behind the 4/4 rhythms and breaking into an emotional gallop that reveals an underlying pathos.  “You Are The Treasure” is the calm after the storm, “My Lord My Love” closes the A side as a song for a lost childhood.  The B side features two unusual covers accompanied by Kevin Barker on Acoustic Guitar, the first is Bob Dylan’s “Pressing On”, Antony’s take is sweet, upbeat and beautiful.  “Imagine” collaboration with avant-garde ambient composer William Basinski is a foreboding take on John Lennon’s hallowed song.

Artwork for the EP features photographs Antony took when he first arrived in NYC as a teenager in the early 90’s. 

Antony and the Johnsons will also release their new album, “Swanlights”, on October 12th in the US via Secretly Canadian.  Abrams Image will simultaneously release a special edition of “Swanlights” which will include the CD inside a 144-page hard cover book containing Antony’s paintings, collages, photography and writing. The album only version of “Swanlights” on Secretly Canadian will also include the song “Flétta”, a duet with Björk. The album and book are a continuation of Antony’s work exploring his connection to the natural world.
