Antony and the Johnsons : “Flétta” [ft. Björk]

Here’s the newest chapter in the ongoing creative collaboration between avant-angel-voiced singers Antony Hegarty and Björk, courtesy of Antony’s Tumblr. (Via Stereogum.)

Compared to their epic Volta duet, “The Dull Flame of Desire”, “Flétta” (that’s Icelandic for “braid”) is shorter, sparer, more upbeat, and features Björk decidedly in the spotlight, with Antony just providing backup vocals. The song will be found on Antony and the Johnson’s upcoming LP, Swanlights, out October 11 in Europe on Rough Trade and a day later in the U.S. from Secretly Canadian.
