New York, NY.Antony and the Johnsons have just released a trailer for the
title track from their forthcoming EP "Another World" (October 7, Secretly

natural world, and expresses that he will miss them; the result is hypnotic
and affecting, with the accompanying video reflecting the song’s theme. The

Antony and the Johnsons emerged onto the international stage in 2005 with
their breakthrough I Am A Bird Now. The group were awarded the Mercury Prize
in the UK and toured the world. Since then Antony has collaborated on tracks
with Bjork for her latest album Volta, appeared in the Leonard Cohen
documentary I’m Your Man, featured as vocalist with Hercules and Love
Affair, recorded for the Todd Haynes bio epic of Bob Dylan I’m Not There,
and collaborated with Charles Atlas on a European tour of their stage
spectacle Turning.

Now Antony and the Johnsons have emerged with a new album, The Crying Light,
which will be released January 2009. "Another World" is the first single,
and it will be released as part of the five-song Another World EP..

The EP Another World also includes "Shake That Devil". Part exorcism and
part Shangri La, Antony calls out perpetrators, and banishes them one by
one.

Two other songs, "Crackagen" and "Sing For Me" are pastoral and surreal.
Finally the epic "Hope Mountain" closes the EP; an episodic narrative set
after a flood; people gather on a mountainside to witness a girl walking on
the water.
