“Year Of Love” is taken from Jenny Hval‘s new album, Classic Objects, out March 11 via 4AD.
After “Jupiter” shared back in November, Norwegian avant pop artist Jenny Hval returns with another amazing song, “Year Of Love.” The track addresses the art industry, as she sings “In the year of love I signed a deal with the patriarchy.” Both singles are taken from her freshly announced album Classic Objects, which also marks her debut on 4AD.
Like the previous single, “Year Of Love” comes with a great video, which was co-directed by Jenny Hval, Jenny Berger Myhre, and Annie Bielski. “A sense of loss and joy intertwines in a world of disconnected rooms,” they explained about the colorful visuals. “The artist inhabits these rooms. She is frozen in time, space, and mid-vowel. She is aware of her immediate surroundings. She is aware that there is more beyond what she can see. A version of her exists in a compressed, compromised, and objectified state. She is sitting in a room, in a house, in a neighborhood, in the art industry.” Watch below and pre-order Classic Objects.
