Zola Jesus takes to the forest in 'Dangerous Days' video - watch

The artist's new album 'Taiga' is set for release on October 7

Zola Jesus has unveiled the video for her song 'Dangerous Days'.

Directed by artist Tim Saccenti, the promo sees the singer – real name Nika Roza Danilova – performing against the backdrop of the great outdoors and also rendered in a 3D imaging process. Speaking about the video - which you can watch above - Saccenti commented: "The song is a pure emotional plea, a future primitive call to arms. To create a moment of light in these dark times was our hope. Eschewing a heavy narrative we let the images of the Earth, filmed in wide screen and mixed with a tense unnatural presence, wash over the viewer while Nika communicates her powerful message." Danilova added: "Working with Tim was effortless. His creative ambition to turn the abstract into a tangible feel is a rare treasure."

Zola Jesus will tour the UK this autumn. The artist will play a run of shows in support of her forthcoming new album 'Taiga', which is set for release on October 7 via Mute, starting at Bristol The Lantern on October 29, with gigs in Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester, finishing up at London KOKO on November 18.

Zola Jesus will play:

Bristol The Lantern (October 29)
Leeds Belgrave Music Hall (30)
Glasgow Stereo (31)
Manchester Cathedral (November 1)
London KOKO (18)


Zola Jesus's new LP is the follow-up to 2011's 'Conatus'. 'Taiga' was written on Vashon Island, Washington, and mixed in Los Angeles by Dean Hurley (David Lynch, Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse).

Speaking about the record, Zola Jesus commented: "The music on the record is massive, with big brass and beats, crystal clear vocals... It's the most accessible music I've ever made, but also the most earnest and passionate. I gave everything for this record, more than ever before."
