In celebration of the new record, Antony and the Johnsons have released the new video for "Cut the World" today.
 

Antony and the Johnsons’ new album Cut the World releases tomorrow and we named it a PopMatters Pick today with a 9 rating. Enio Chiola says, “Antony and the Johnsons possess magnificent power in their live performances; they reflect such luminescent beauty to such an unprepared audience. To be witness to their true power is to see them live. If you didn’t know their new album, Cut the World, was a live album from the beginning, you’d never be able to tell. All performances, Antony’s voice, the orchestral arrangements, are all so incredibly perfect you’d be amazed that they didn’t actually spends hours upon hours in the studio perfecting every little note and melody.”

In celebration of the new record, Antony and the Johnsons have released the new video for “Cut the World” today. It stars Willem Dafoe, Carice Van Houten (Game of Thrones, Valkyrie) as well as performance artist Marina Abramović.
