Jenny Hval signs to 4AD and releases video for brand new single Jupiter

Norwegian art rocker Jenny Hval has released a video for her brand new seven-minute single Jupiter, which you can watch below. It’s the first new solo music Hval has released since 2020’s Bonus Material standalone single, which followed Hval’s 2019 album The Practice Of Love and also her first new music since she signed with 4AD Records.

“When I wrote the music for this song in 2015, it had no lyrics, and I did not understand where it came from,” Hval explains. “It was a strange creature that moved from one genre to the next like a slide show and crashed into a chorus full of cymbals. Six years later ‘Jupiter’ has become a post-apocalyptic road trip. It begins by the art installation Prada Marfa in Texas, but turns into a game of identification and absurd imagery. The song winds its way through a desert-scape where values, genres, representation and relationships are breaking down. It tickles our death drive and throws us into space.” 
 
“In Zia’s music video, that journey has become a psychedelic hot-air balloon ride. The video crew is filmed stepping into the balloon, knowing it is dangerous. That’s how the precarious workforce, including artists and other freelancers, work: High risk, little security. We all just mean so little. The thinnest needle can puncture our lives.”
