Jenny Hval Returns with 'Apocalypse, girl'

Jenny Hval Returns with 'Apocalypse, girl'
Norway-based experimental singer-songwriter Jenny Hval released her fourth solo album, Innocence is Kinky, in 2013. She quickly followed it up with Meshes of Voice, a collaboration with Susanna Wallumrød, in 2014. Seemingly unable to slow down, she's back with yet another solo LP.

The album's called Apocalypse, girl, and a press release calls it "a very intimate, very visual beast," adding, "It dreams of an old science fiction movie where gospel choir girls are punks and run the world with auto-erotic impulses. It's a gentle hum from a doomsday cult, a soft desire for collective devotion, an ode to the close-up and magnified, unruly desires."

In addition to Hval, Apocalypse, girl also features noise legend Lasse Marhaug, Jagga Jazzist's Øystein Moen, Swans' Thor Harris, cellist Okkyung Lee, harpist Rhodri Davis, and Hval's bandmates Håvard Volden and Kyrre Laastad.

Sacred Bones will issue the new album on June 9. Its tracklisting is available below, along with a trailer for the LP. 

In addition, Jenny Hval will support St. Vincent and Perfume Genius on tour this spring. All dates are available below.
