Jenny Hval details new album ‘Classic Objects’

Watch the video for new single ‘Year of Love’ now.

Set for release on 11th March, Jenny Hval has announced her new album ‘Classic Objects’. Sharing new single ‘Year of Love’ today, the track was inspired by a proposal Jenny witnessed while she was performing. “For me, this experience was very troubling,” she notes. “It confronted me with the fact that I am also married. What does that detail from my private life say about me as an artist? ‘Year of Love’ asks, who am I as an artist? Do my private actions betray my work and voice?” The track is also accompanied by a new video directed by Jenny, Jenny Berger Myhre, and Annie Bielski. They say, “A sense of loss and joy intertwines in a world of disconnected rooms. The artist inhabits these rooms. She is frozen in time, space, and mid-vowel. She is aware of her immediate surroundings. She is aware that there is more beyond what she can see. A version of her exists in a compressed, compromised, and objectified state. She is sitting in a room, in a house, in a neighbourhood, in the art industry.” Check it out below. ‘Classic Objects’ Tracklisting: 1. Year of Love 2. American Coffee 3. Classic Objects 4.
