Don’t get too psyched about this new track from Antony Hegarty – it's not from a new Antony and the Johnsons record. “Rise” is featured in the filmmaker Lynette Wallwort’s new movie Coral Rekindling Venus, about the plight of the world’s coral reefs. When you listen to Antony’s typically gorgeous, chilling track and grasp a bit of its lyrical content, you’ll understand how perfectly it fits with Wallwort’s film. You don’t have to see the movie to listen to the song – you can check it out in the film’s trailer (the track works beautifully with Wallwort’s imagery) or download “Rise” on the film’s website for free or with a small donation to the Australian Research Council Center for Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.
