Watch: Nabil x Antony and the Johnsons

Willem Dafoe and Carice van Houten star in the band's new video.

Oyster contributor Nabil recently directed the video for Kanye's 'Mercy', and now he has directed a video for Antony and the Johnsons. In the video, Willem Dafoe stars alongside Game of Thrones' Carice van Houten and performance artist Marina Abramović (the song was originally written for her opera, The Life and Death of Marina Abramović). Carice plays a blood-thirsty secretary with Willem as her victim. 

 
'Cut the World' appears on Antony and the Johnsons' album of the same title, which has just been released. The album is made up of live recordings from the band's back catalogue performed with a symphony orchestra, but 'Cut the World' is a previously unheard track.
