ANOHNI has announced a new EP to be released in March.
Paradise is her first new music since last year’s Hopelessness which came third in our Albums of The Year list last year.
Teaming up with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke again, the title track of Paradise is available to stream now. The full EP drops 17 March via Rough Trade Records.
The artwork for the EP features nine portraits of women which ANOHNI used as visuals for her live tour.
Along with the release, ANOHNI shared a note which you can read in full below. After the statement, listen to the song via Spotify and check out the full tracklist for the EP.
Her gentle touch
My Father’s Hands
Rest on my Throat
“Our new leaders hope to crush our spirits and expedite ecocide in the name of virulent progress, consumerism and false security.
Like Jihadis, many capitalists and Christians compulsively seek to facilitate a righteous “holy war”, or apocalypse.
For millennia, Men have enslaved women and attempted to appropriate female creative power, re-casting themselves as gods and creators.
This assault continues today in the forms of ruthless wealth and mineral extraction, genetic engineering, mass surveillance and war mongering.
But as Donald Trump and his cabinet now demonstrate, the skills encouraged in men by their biologies and the tools that boys master in the playground have not equipped them to deal with the unprecedented global crisis we are now facing.
Mothers, your sons are trapped in a nightmare; they are not capable of responsibly negotiating the destructive agency that they now wield.
More profound even than a crime against humanity, fathers and sons now compulsively prepare to commit ecocide, in a final and irreversible assault upon creation itself.
Only an intervention by women around the world, with their innate knowledge of interdependency, deep listening, empathy and self-sacrifice, could possibly alter our species’ desperate course.”
