Antony and the Johnsons’ The Crying Light

cryinglight

This week marks the release of the third album from Antony and the Johnsons entitled The Crying Light. The cover features Japanese Butoh dancer Kazui Ohno. The follow up to I am a Bird Now deals with themes of birth, death, what we leave behind in this world and what there is on the other side.

Along with the release of the album, a new video has just been released for “Epilepsy is Dancing,” a cut off The Crying Light. The video is directed by the Wachowski Brothers (yes the guys who did The Matrix trilogy). The beautifully shot video features painters Tino Rodriguez and Vigo Paradiso, who created the costumes, and choreography by Sean Dorsey. The video comes across like a moving peice of art as the dancers are gorgeously painted and butterflies come out of a masked Antony Hegarty’s mouth.

Watch the video below and check out Antony & The Johnsons tour dates after the cut:
