Zola Jesus Unleashes Maps Remix

Zola Jesus share Maps Remix, Tour Dates, Her forthcoming LP 'Taiga' comes out 10/7 on Mute announces new tour dates starting October 8th in San francisco

Zola Jesus unveils a transcendent remix of “Dangerous Days” from Northampton based musician (and Mute label-mate) James Chapman aka Maps. Maps takes this modern masterpiece to new heights with his emotive and cinematic interpretation, saying, “Dangerous Days was a real pleasure to remix. It’s a really uplifting track, and Nika’s vocals are so powerful. When I worked on the song I wanted to really push the euphoric elements as much as I could, while still keeping the vibe of the original.”  Zola Jesus’s Taiga is due for release October 7th, 2014 on Mute.  First single “Dangerous Days” is now available, and the album is available to pre-order here.  Listen to the Maps remix of “Dangerous Days’ below.

Zola Jesus embarks on a worldwide tour beginning in San Francisco on October 8th, hitting major US cities before she heads to UK & Europe.  Full dates below.

Nika is the 25-year-old behind Zola Jesus’ creative incarnations as sole singer and songwriter.  Influenced by her time in Iceland, Vermont, and British Columbia, Taiga was written on Vashon Island, WA and conjures all these places while creating a sonic space of its own that each listener can travel to, explore, hide in, and celebrate. Nika tracked and mixed the album in Los Angeles with co-producer Dean Hurley (David Lynch, Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse).

At once challenging and accessible, Taiga is a transition for Zola Jesus. Undeniably branded with what Nika terms a “piercing ambition,” the album is best described by the artist herself: “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.”
