ANOHNI has announced the release of a forthcoming EP that will serve as a companion piece to last year’s full-length album ‘HOPELESSNESS’.
‘Paradise’ will arrive on 17th March via Rough Trade and is a continuation of her collaboration with Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never. The six-track EP will feature a mix of brand new material, as well as songs that she’s played during recent live performances.

Accompanying the announcement, ANOHNI also shared the Hudson Mohawke produced title-track, along with statement reflecting upon the current political climate in light of the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as U.S. President:
“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.”
