Anohni performs Hopelessness at Barbican

Anohni, the artist previously known as Antony Hegarty, set to perform Hopelessness this June.

Anohni, the artist previously known as Antony Hegarty of Antony And The Johnsons, will perform in collaboration with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke at London’s Barbican this July. The event will see the artist play material from the new album Hopelessness which is due out in spring this year. The Barbican has stated that those in the audience “will be amongst the first to hear material from the new album live in concert”.

At the end of last year, Anohni released the single “4 Degrees” – with 0PN and HudMo in its production credits – to coincide with the UN climate talks in Paris.

Hopelessness will be performed at London's Barbican, 7–8 July, 7.30pm
