Zola Jesus has announced the release of her new album, “ARKHON”, out May 20th via Sacred Bones.
2. The Fall
4. Into The Wild
5. Dead and Gone
10. Do That Anymore
The first single/video, “Lost”, which is the album’s opening track was done by Mu Tunç and it was shot in Cappadocia. Zola Jesus shared this about it: “I wanted to shoot the video in a place that carried a lot of energy, with someone that I felt understood the spiritual backbone of the song. It was a surprisingly natural process to make this video with Mu Tunc in Turkey. I put my faith in him and in Cappadocia, a labyrinthine city built within 60 million-year-old caves. Throughout human history these caves have served as a citadel for so many different groups of people who went there to get lost. It is a testament to the resilience of humanity, and the durability of our earth.”
About the album’s title she shared this: “Arkons are a Gnostic idea of power wielded through a flawed god. They taint and tarnish humanity, keeping them corrupted instead of letting them find their harmonious selves. I do feel like we are living in an arkhonic time; these negative influences are weighing extremely heavy on all of us.”
No tour dates have been announced yet for the USofA (nor Tijuana).
