After releasing her debut full-length Hopelessness, our favorite album of 2016, artist-activist ANOHNI today announced a new EP titled Paradise.
Paradise, due out March 17 via Secretly Canadian and Rough Trade, contains six tracks of new and recently-debuted material, and is a companion to last year's LP. Like Hopelessness, it will focus on "activist conversations" and political issues including corporations, religion, and declining biodiversity, according to a press release. It was also produced in collaboration with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke. Stream Paradise's dystopian-themed title track below.
Along with the EP announcement, ANOHNI shared a statement addressing the current political and environmental climate, writing that President Trump and his cabinet are not equipped to deal with the global crisis we are now facing.
"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," she said. "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."
