LGW19 curator Jenny Hval shares new song 'Ashes to Ashes' from upcoming album 'The Practice of Love'
Le Guess Who? 2019 curator Jenny Hval's multi-disciplinary work aims to break beyond the confining zones of a certain genre or discipline to form a deeper connection with her audiences. Now, the Norwegian avant-pop artist announces her new album 'The Practice of Love' (out 13 September 13 via Sacred Bones), and shares its first single 'Ashes to Ashes'. Listen below. The album features collaborations with a.o. Felicia Atkinson and Vivian Wang; two artists she has alos invited for her curation at LGW19.
At Le Guess Who? 2019, Jenny Hval will present her new performance with the same title as the new album. The performance will explore sonic, visual and choreographic ideas while transforming voices, sounds and even bodies into texts, in a process that Hval herself describes as a form of magic. With a multi-national ensemble including experimental musicians, vocalists, dancers and video artists, this new project extends Hval’s work into new and even more challenging territory.
