Jenny Hval announces Blood Bitch

Jenny Hval has announced a new album Blood Bitch, due 30th September via Sacred Bones Records. As well as various European festival slots, the Norwegian artist is also set to tour the UK in October this year with shows in London, Glasgow and Manchester.

Hear a track from the album below:

In the words of Jenny Hval herself:

“Blood Bitch is also a fictitious story, fed by characters and images from horror and exploitation films of the ’70s. With that language, rather than smart, modern social commentary, I found I could tell a different story about myself and my own time: a poetic diary of modern transience and transcendence.

So this is my most fictional and most personal album. It’s also the first album where I’ve started reconnecting with the goth and metal scene I started out playing in many years ago, by remembering the drony qualities of Norwegian Black Metal. It’s an album of vampires, lunar cycles, sticky choruses, and the smell of warm leaves and winter.”

UK dates:

17th Oct – Stereo, Glasgow
18th Oct – Soup Kitchen, Manchester
19th Oct – Oslo, London
