Anohni and Oneohtrix Point Never stopped by BBC Radio 1 yesterday (August 2) to perform tracks from their collaborative album Hopelessness.
The pair, who were appearing on Annie Mac’s show, played “Drone Bomb Me” and “Why Did You Separate Me From The Earth?” during the 25-minute set. They also shared two previously unreleased tracks, titled “In My Dreams” – which was described by Anohni as a “little improvisation” – and “Paradise”. Both songs are apparently being included in the singer’s current tour, which she described as “exhilarating.”
“It’s been a really exciting summer so far,” Anohni revealed in an accompanying interview. “(The album) has been contentious in some countries, and in other countries, they've really, really embraced it.”
“It really depends also on where the audience is at in terms of thinking about stuff,” she added. “Not to say there's right or wrong way to think, it's just whether we're on a similar page.”
