Exclusive Stream: Zola Jesus’s Spectacular New Album ‘Taiga’ – Listen

Zola Jesus has always possessed some of the mightiest lungs in music: her belting, strident voice boomed throughout the moody melodrama of debut ‘Stridulum II’ and the glitchier follow-up ‘Conatus’. New album ‘Taiga’, though, marries those impressive pipes to some of her biggest, most accessible songs yet.

Speaking about the LP herself, the singer – aka Nika Roza Danilova – says: “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.”

You can listen to the album, which is released on October 7, by clicking the player below. And if that tickles your fancy, you can catch her when she plays live on the following dates: Bristol Colston Hall (October 29), Leeds Belgrave Music Hall (30), Glasgow Stereo (31), Manchester Cathedral Columns Festival (November 1) and London Koko (November 18).
