Zola Jesus announces album details & drops a new single

Zola Jesus will follow last year’s striking Stidulum II album with Conatus. The third LP from Nika Roza Danilova was co-produced by herself and Brian Foote (Jackie-O Motherfucker, Cloudland Canyon) in Los Angeles and will released in late September via Souterrain Transmissions.

Lead single ‘Vessel’ dropped today. It follows the gothic balladry of Stridulum but with light-industrial electronics. Nika’s voice is on point as ever, dark & sensual with throaty chorus peaks.
