ANOHNI formerly Antony premiered her new song “Drone Bomb Me” on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show today. The premiere was accompanied by a fittingly raw video, released exclusively on Apple Music.
The English artist enlisted Naomi Campbell to appear in the visual and tapped Riccardo Tisci to oversee its artistic direction. The end result is a chilling and beautiful video; where Campbell lip syncs the tracks powerful lyrics, at one point with tears streaming down her face. The striking visual also features a group of modern dancers and contortionist, whose movements only further exemplify the songs heartbreaking lyrics. The video was directed Nabil, whose credits include Kanye West, Travi$ Scott, and Beats By Dre.
ANOHNI’s describes “Drone Bomb Me,” as “a love song written from the perspective of a young girl in Afghanistan whose family has been executed by unmanned U.S. drones.” This is the first single off her upcoming album HOPELESSNESS due out May 6.
