Jenny Hval has signed to 4AD and just released her first single for the label. "Jupiter" is an ethereal creation, with Jenny's voice soaring above the airy production. “When I wrote the music for this song in 2015, it had no lyrics, and I did not understand where it came from," Jenny says. "It was a strange creature that moved from one genre to the next like a slide show and crashed into a chorus full of cymbals. Six years later ‘Jupiter’ has become a post-apocalyptic road trip. It begins by the art installation Prada Marfa in Texas, but turns into a game of identification and absurd imagery. The song winds its way through a desert-scape where values, genres, representation and relationships are breaking down. It tickles our death drive and throws us into space.”
The video for "Jupiter" was made with Hval's frequent creative partner, Zia Anger, and plays into the themes of the song. There are hot air balloons and Deep Dream effects., and you can watch it below.
