Antony And The Johnsons – Cut The World


Today Pitchfork premiered the video for “Cut The World,” the title track off Antony and the Johnsons‘ upcoming live symphonic album. Originally written for the theatre production “The Life And Death of Marina Abramovic,” “Cut The World” now gets the music video treatment courtesy of director NABIL (Kanye West, Bon Iver, Frank Ocean). This dark, rather literal interpretation of the song title features chilling performances from a murderous Carice Van Houten (Game Of Thrones) and an unsuspecting Willem Dafoe. Be warned: it’s a tad NSFW.

Cut The World comes out August 7th via Secretly Canadian. Those of you in London can catch a screening of the video at the Antony Hegarty-curated Meltdown Festival on August 11th.
