Jenny Hval announces “The Long Sleep” EP, shares jazz-tinged song “Spells”

“Spells” is taken from Jenny Hval‘s upcoming “The Long Sleep” EP due out on May 25 via Sacred Bones Records.

After her debut collaborative EP with Håvard Volden under the moniker Lost Girls, Norwegian experimentalist Jenny Hval is back with a new track, “Spells”, and the announcement of a 4-track EP. The piano-driven, jazz-tinged song seems to open new colourful horizons and soundscapes for the feminist singer-songwriter.

These announcements were accompanied by a statement from the artist:

There should be something I could tell you, there should be something I could do to reach you directly, but there is nothing useful in the way we define ‘you’, or ‘me’. “There should be something I could tell you, there should be something I could say directly without lyrics and melody.

Jenny Hval also added:

Maybe that’s what I’m trying here. Something else than lyrics or melody. It’s not the words. It’s not in the rhythm. It’s not in the streaming. It’s not in the ‘message’. It’s not in the product. It’s not in the algorithms. It’s not something you decided. It’s not something they decided for you. I want to tell you something. I just want to say: Thank you. I love you.

Jenny Hval will also publish her debut novel “Paradise Rot” in October.
