My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross, ANOHNI's 6th studio album, shape shifts through its subject matter: the loss of loved ones, inequality, alienation, privilege, denial, ecocide and the tidal power of Earth, isolation, Future Feminism, and the intention that we might yet transform our ways of thinking, our religious ideas, our societal structures, and our relationships with the rest of nature. Highlights include "It Must Change", "Sliver of Ice" and "Why Am I Alive Now?".

On her first full album since 2016's HOPELESSNESS, she explains the creative process was painstaking, yet also inspired, joyful, and intimate, a renewal and a renaming of her response to the world as she sees it. "A couple of these songs are almost a response to the call of (Marvin Gaye's) "What's Going On", from 2023. They are a kind of an echo from the future to that album from 50 years ago".

A record its creator acknowledges is inextricably both personal and political, and one that is full of heartfelt music that also questions its own right to be heard, My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross demonstrates music's unique capacity to bring harmony to competing, sometimes contradictory, elements. A soulful and intense record that provides a safe place to grieve nothing less than the destruction of the planet.

Exclusive WHITE vinyl produced by Secretly Canadian in 2023. Includes download card.
