Zola Jesus reworks material for new collaborative album ‘Versions’
Electronic noise pop artist Zola Jesus will release ‘Versions’, a 10-track collection of reworked originals, this 23rd August through Sacred Bones via Inertia.
The album was made with Australian producer J.G. Thirlwell (Nick Cave, Swans), who she also collaborated with to arrange the tracks for a recent string quartet performance at New York City’s Guggenheim Museum.
Thirlwell’s work includes a range from orchestrations, big band, and cathartic noise-rock to abstract electronics, sound sculpture, and chamber music, thus making him the perfect collaborator to help realize Zola Jesus’ vision.
“Versions is about the bone of the music; taking approximations from past records and turning them inside out. With all framework exposed, the songs are given a new medium in which to evolve and bloom into their own tiny worlds,” Zola explains.
