Antony And The Johnsons team up with Björk on new album ‘Swanlights’

Antony Hegarty compares new record with 'a spirit jumping out of the human body'

Antony & The Johnsons have teamed up with Bjork on their forthcoming new album ‘Swanlights’.

Frontman Antony Hegarty duets with the Icelandic singer on ‘Flétta’, a track from the LP, which is due out on October 11.

The album will be available independently, while an edition with a 144-page book featuring writing, paintings, collages and photos by Hegarty will also be on offer.


“It’s the reflection of light on the surface of the water at night,” explained Hegarty of the LP’s title. “It’s the moment when a spirit jumps out of a body and turns into a violet ghost.”

Other tracks slated to appear on the follow-up to their 2009 album ‘The Crying Light’ include ‘Everything is New’ and ‘Thank You For Your Love’.
