Anthem: Homunculus premiered April 23 on Luminary. The 10-episode series is produced by Topic.

“When John and I set out to start working on the story and music, the idea wasn’t to write in an episodic format,” Weller said in a statement. “But as the story grew in magnitude, so did the scope of the music, with it being clear that all these different characters in this world would have their own sound. So the songs came to make up an eclectic, expressive world of contrasts and variety all their own. The real songwriting began right after the presidential election of 2016, so while this informed many aspects of the narrative, much of the lyrical content and musical tone also reflect this. There’s anger and fear, but also resolution and defiance, and ultimately hope.”
