Earlier this year, ANOHNI released her new album, My Back Was a Bridge for You to Cross, via Secretly Canadian/Rough Trade. Today, she’s released a new video from the album, for the song “Scapegoat.” The new video is a collaboration with ANOHNI’s family: directed by sister Sara Hegarty, art directed by photographer and visual artist Barbara Hegarty, and assisted by Ella Hegarty. Watch the clip below.
ANOHNI said in a statement, “The subjugation of women and the earth is one and the same. Enforce a global standard for the rights and ethical treatment of women, including the right to abortion. Relieve men of their roles as protectors and predators. Protect trans lives and people of color. Repattern societies to nurture the resurgence of biodiversity. Restore the female archetype as central to creation. Make it illegal to profit from the sale of fossil fuels, weapons, toxic chemicals, medicine, and the imprisonment of others. Globally redistribute hoarded resources. Criminalize the torture of animals. De-escalate the ‘necessity’ of economic growth. Prosecute war criminals and agents of corporate ecocide. Require global referendums on the development and proliferation of new technologies. Replace most men in seats of corporate, religious, and governmental power today with women. Ask why we are more willing to succumb to the final destruction of the biosphere, the source of our lives, than explore changes such as these.”
