Zola Jesus announces new album, Arkhon
Zola Jesus has announced a new album. On May 20, she’ll release Arkhon via Sacred Bones. The first single is titled “Lost.” Hear it below.
Zola Jesus says of the new track in a press release: “It’s true. Everyone I know is lost. Lost hope, lost future, lost present, lost planet. There is a collective disillusionment of our burning potential. As we stray further from nature, we drift from ourselves. ‘Lost’ is a sigil to re-discover our coordinates and claim a new path.” Of the video she states, “ 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.”
Arkhon follows 2017’s Okovi.
