Jenny Hval Shares New Single, “Conceptual Romance” | New Album Out 9/30 On Sacred Bones

Recognized for her fascinating voice, singular delivery and non-traditional aural and visual arrangements, Norwegian artist Jenny Hval eloquently brings to light issues of both male and female gaze through her distinct take on intimate sound. This fall sees the release of new album, Blood Bitch, co-produced with noise producer Lasse Marhaug and out September 30th via Sacred Bones. As Hval’s most fictional yet, personal album, it’s “an investigation of blood. Blood that is shed naturally. The white and red toilet roll chain which ties together the virgins, the whores, the mothers, the witches, the dreamers, and the lovers.” After the release of debut single, “Female Vampire,” she shares “Conceptual Romance,” the album’s second single and perhaps one of the most accessible songs Hval has ever created.

Those who caught Jenny Hval’s set at the Pitchfork Music Festival can attest her special live show (all dates are below) is a not-to-be-missed presentation. As described by the Chicago Tribune, “Just ten minutes into her set, the Norwegian is already making a case for turning in the most bizarre showing in Pitchfork history. But she’s just warming up. Situations and costumes only get weirder in what transpires as an impressionistic performance-art display steeped in satire, deconstructionism and individualism.”
