After three excellent albums in Conatus, Stridulum II and The Spoils, Zola Jesus has announced her new album Taiga will be out on October 7th via Mute. Below you can stream the first single ‘Dangerous Days’.
In regards to the album title, Nika explains, “Taiga is the Russian name for the boreal forest. For me it feels very alive… very expansive. 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.”
