Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke graduate from eating Haribo together to co-producing Antony's new album

Back in June of last year, the TMTniverse was set on fire by a single pic — Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke sharing a limited-edition package of Haribo gummy Smurfs. Though finding out that two of our favorite producers share our love of Smurfs-licensed merchandise and confectioneries was enough to warrant an uproar, it was the potential for post-Haribo music collaboration that really got our minds going. Would a collaborative LP be in the works? Would one be producing for the other’s next solo release? Were both tapped for scoring duties on The Smurfs 3?

Not quite, but still exciting: OPN and HudMo are serving as co-producers on Antony’s new album, HOPELESSNESS, which will be released under the moniker ANOHNI and is currently in the mixing stages. Antony describes the album as “an electronic record with some sharp teeth.” In interviews last year, Antony had mentioned working with Mohawke on an “NSA-themed” album, and OPN had previously worked with Antony on a couple mutual remixes (or re-fixes as I like to call everything now in a bid to gain music writers’ respect). Antony recorded a new (and awesome and beautiful) vocals + piano version of Returnal’s title track in 2010, and Lopatin returned the favor in 2011 with an OPN edit of Swanlights’s title track. Listen to both below, hold tight for more album details, and get ready for The Smurfs 3 in theaters in 2016!
