Paddy's Gone

Antony & the Johnsons are releasing another single on Secretly Canadian - "You are My Sister", the duet with Boy George from I Am a Bird Now. The exciting news is that is offering one of the B-sides, a new song called "Paddy's Gone", as a free download. I have a review of the song coming out on Pitchfork soon, so I won't talk about it here at the risk of replicating what I'm going to say there. I will say that "Paddy's Gone" is astonishly lovely, just Antony's voice and piano. For listeners who found "Hope There's Someone" so stunning that the rest of the album, no matter how gorgeous it was, just couldn't live up, this is the song you've been waiting for.
