Zola Jesus Debuts Song, LP Out October 7th

Zola Jesus Debuts New Track, TAIGA Out October 7th via Mute Records,

Zola Jesus debuts a second track, entitled “Go (Blank Sea)” from her upcoming release TAIGA, out October 7th, on Mute.  Explaining her inspiration for the song Nika says, “I wrote Go (Blank Sea) about the facelessness of city life. How is it you can walk down the busiest street of a metropolis, fighting through a current of busy moving bodies, yet feel completely isolated? All of the singularity rubs together to create a universal dull hum that can cancel us all out. It’s in the densest populations that I sometimes feel the most alone, and in barren uninhabited lands that I feel the most alive and human. It’s a strange dichotomy, and something I explore a lot on TAIGA.” 

Zola Jesus also revealed new details on the record release tour beginning in San Francisco on October 8th, hitting major cities in the US, UK and Europe.  Opening acts Operators, Leech, The-Drum, Martin Rev (Suicide) & Lee Bannon have been confirmed on US tour dates.  For the US and London shows, Nika will also be joined on stage by a live brass ensemble, under direction from  brass arranger and tubist Tuba Joe Exley.  Nika elaborates, “I’ve also been working closely with lighting designer Sarah Landau and stage designer Carl Robertshaw, to create a visual environment that mimics the architects and sculpture artists that inspired me while writing the record. It’s so exciting to finally bring these ideas to fruition and share them with you in person.”
