Johnny Jewel has served up plenty of aural bouquets in his time as a member of bands like Glass Candy, Chromatics and Desire. Now, he's teamed up with actress Chloë Sevigny for a commissioned piece of music for L.A. perfume company Régime des Fleurs. Their "Prayer to St. Therese" is streaming now.
The track is intended to score a Régime event this Sunday (February 14), as part of New York Fashion Week. It features an aromatic cloud of midnight cigarette synths, which simmer beneath a poem read by Sevigny. Throughout, she whispers about picking full-bloom flowers from the gardens of paradise, or longing to be anointed with a shower of lilacs, jasmine, and hyacinth.
You'll find a stream of "Prayer to St. Therese" below, while the full composition will be revealed at the Régime des Fleurs event this weekend.
