Anohni has shared an emotive cover of Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 classic ‘I Will Survive’. The track was a staple of her early live shows and opens with a graceful string arrangement by Maxim Moston, paired with piano performed by Anohni. Anohni dedicates the song to “the sacred gay people”; “all endangered Black trans lives”; “those in the US who die from medical neglect”; “the coral reefs of the world, now rotting”; “all those awaiting execution in US death chambers”; “Black lives tortured and stolen by American cops” and more. , Anohni explains: “It was the first song I ever sang in nightclubs in NYC when I was 20 years old. I sang it hundreds of times. In those days I sang it thinking of Marsha P. Johnson and the underground queer community struggling to survive in the face of AIDS. Now it seems to me like an anthem for the future of life on earth.” B-Side: “R.N.C 2020”: a track inspired by the Republican National Convention which took place in August and the dread Anohni felt while watching it.
