Zola Jesus is streaming the song ‘Dangerous Days’ from her forthcoming new album ‘Taiga’.
Click below to listen to the track, which comes from the follow up to the singer’s third LP ‘Conatus’ which was released in 2011. Released on October 7 via Mute, ‘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 – real name Nika Roza Danilova – commented: “For me, it feels like my true debut, because it is the first time I have felt so open and liberated.”
The album is named after the Russian word for the boreal forest. “It represents a feral, untapped world that could happily exist without us. There are taiga forests in Northern Wisconsin where I was raised, and also in Russia where my ancestors are from, so it also feels very native,” said Danilova.
