Zola Jesus finds a new home
Zola Jesus has signed to Mute in a worldwide deal. The first fruits of the new relationship come with an album, Taiga, out on 6th October.
Taiga follows the critically acclaimed albums Versions (2013) and Conatus (2011). The first single from the forthcoming 11-track album is ‘Dangerous Days’, which you can stream below:
In regards to the album title, she explains, “Taiga is the Russian name for the boreal forest. For me it feels very alive… very expansive. It represents a feral, untapped world that could happily exist without us. There are taiga forests in Northern Wisconsin where I was raised, and also in Russia where my ancestors are from, so it also feels very native.”
