Since his Mercury Prize-winning 2005 album I AM A BIRD NOW, fans have heard Antony"s angelic voice on everything from Leonard Cohen covers to duets with Bjork to the DFA project Hercules and Love Affair. But 2008"s ANOTHER WORLD EP marks Antony"s first outing with the Johnsons since I AM A BIRD NOW. At five songs, the EP may seem like a teaser, but five new songs from Antony and the Johnsons is cause for celebration. The spare, chilling title track, which bemoans the disintegration of the world we live in, showcases Antony"s quavering, passionate tenor to beautiful effect. Antony"s voice and piano playing also lead "Crackagen" and "Sing for Me," while "Shake That Devil," a rockabilly-flavored blues, shows the singer in a rare uptempo context. Naturally, ANOTHER WORLD doesn"t have the cohesive impact of a full-length, but for the chance to hear Antony"s utterly unique, otherworldly voice it"s not to be missed.Antony & The Johnsons emerged on the international stage in 2005 with their breakthrough "I Am A Bird Now" (over 700,000 RTD worldwide). His first new material since 2006 is a prelude to the new full-length, "The Crying Light", coming in January 2009. Of the project, Antony said, "I wanted to mark this moment very clearly in my life. I love and feel so anchored by the natural world, which gave birth to me, which supplies and supports my life, this experience of color and light and aching beauty. But the world is changing so fast now. "Another World" is a song for the present but also a song for the future. What have I lost? And what is to come?"Released October 7th, 2008.Track Listing:1 Another World2 Crackagen3 Shake That Devil4 Sing For Me5 Hope Mountain
