Never ones to shy away from ambitious projects, NYC-based band Antony and the Johnsons turned to director Robert Wilson to create a cinematic piece inspired by the shifts in nature for the title track from their latest album, Cut the World. They also recruited heavy hitters including Willem Defoe, Carice Van Houten, and performance artist Marina Abramovic to star in the short, which features love, murder, and one pissed off coworker. The song comes from the band's latest album which is a collection of live symphonic performances recorded in Denmark alongside the Danish National Chamber Orchestra. All in all, definitely worth a watch. Check out the clip below!
