Secretly Candian previously announced the release of Antony and the Johnsons’ album and 144-page hardcover book, Swanlights in May. Since then, the date has been changed to October 12th in North America and the 11th in Europe. To the devotees-they assure you its worth the week-long wait!
Björk joins Antony on the album with the duet “Flétta.” The two have already collaborated on “The Dull Flame of Desire” and “My Juvenile” from Björk’s 2007 album Volta.
The Swanlights book and album will allow readers to see the how Antony’s chosen media informs and complements one another. The Swanlights art book includes fragmentary images, drawings, paintings, photography, collage, writings and song lyrics. Each gorgeously-produced hardbound book will also include the Secretly Canadian full-length cd release of Swanlights.
