Jenny Hval has announced a brand new album, 'The Practice of Love'

Jenny Hval has announced a brand new album.

Titled 'The Practice of Love', it'll be the Norwegian's seventh full-length, and is set to arrive on 13th September via Sacred Bones.

Previewed by a lead single 'Ashes to Ashes', Hval explains: “This all sounds very clichéd, like a standard greeting card expression. But for me, love, and the practice of love, has been deeply tied to the feeling of otherness. Love as a theme in art has been the domain of the canonized, big artists, and I have always seen myself as a minor character, a voice that speaks of other things. But in the last few years I have wanted to take a closer look at the practice of otherness, this fragile performance, and how it can express love, intimacy, empathy and desire. I have wanted to ask bigger, wider, kind of idiotic questions like: What is our job as a member of the human race? Do we have to accept this job, and if we don’t, does the pressure to be normal ever stop?”

So there we go.

You can check out 'Ashes to Ashes' below.
