Zola Jesus’ new album Arkhon will be released on June 24th.
Zola Jesus has collaborated with director Jenni Hensler on the video for her latest single The Fall.
“Working with Jenni Hensler as a director was such a soul-feeding experience,” Nika Roza Danilova aka says. “She’s someone I’ve been collaborating with for ten years, and a dear friend to me.”
“I value her own artistic perspective so much that at some point I realized there was no one else I could trust with my vision. We connected on an emotional and spiritual level regarding the intent of the song, and then I handed it over and let her make her magic.”
“I’ve never felt so freed by a collaboration. And working with choreographer Sigrid Lauren was such an empowering experience. She was able to interpret and support my idiosyncratic movements in a way that allowed me to feel free in the moment.”
Danilova took the same spirit of collaboration into the sessions for Arkhon, working with producer Randall Dunn and percussionist Matt Chamberlain, embracing whatever the outcome of this fresh approach would be.
