Antony has a track called "Angel on Fire" on the Catching Fire Soundtrack which is out now on. It is a song that Antony wrote in 1992. The backing track for the song is partly comprised of 4track recording that Antony once used in club performances in NYC.
To celebrate the Swanlights album release, Antony will be "taking over" the music website for a week starting on Monday. We have prepared interviews with Marina Abromovic and Bjork, essays including one on Native American Two Spirit traditions, video debuts by Charles Atlas, Peter Sempel and Antony and the Johnsons, features on several musicians and an art series. We are really excited about it! Check in throughout the week for daily updates.
