Last week we brought you the news of Jenny Hval teaming up with Sacred Bones to reveal her new album teaser, today we stream her latest single ‘The Battle Is Over’.
The album, Apocalypse, Girl is set to be released in June via the aforementioned label alongside a summer UK tour, including a show with Perfume Genius in London on June 10th and a headline show at Café Oto onJune 14th.
Jenny Hval has managed to develop her own take on intimate sound since the release of her debut album in 2006. Her work, which includes 2013′s ‘Innocence Is Kinky’, has gradually incorporated books, sound installations and collaborations with poets and visual artists.
We’re told, for Hval, language is central. It is an aspect that she has always torn between the vulnerable, the explosive and total humiliation.
