Antony and the Johnsons - Hope there's somenone

Antony and the Johnsons is a Mercury Prize-winning music act from New York City. The band is essentially a vehicle for singer Antony (full name Antony Hegarty). British experimental musician David Tibet of Current 93 heard a demo and offered to release Antony's music through his Durtro label. The debut album, Antony and the Johnsons, was released in 2000. In 2001, Antony released a short follow-up EP, I Fell in Love with a Dead Boy, which, in addition to the title track, included a cover of "Mysteries of Love", a David Lynch/Angelo Badalamenti song and "Soft Black Stars", a cover of a Current 93 song. Antony's second full-length album, 2005's I Am a Bird Now, was greeted with positive reviews and significantly more mainstream attention, winning the Mercury Music Prize for the best album of 2005. In November 2006 Antony and the Johnsons performed a successful European tour of 'Turning', a multimedia collaboration with video producer Charles Atlas, which focused on themes of transformation and metamorphosis.

Antony and the Johnsons' third album, The Crying Light, is anticipated on January 21, 2009. Additional details have yet to be made known, but Antony has described the theme of the album as being "about landscape and the future". in Wikipedia :)
