Jenny Hval has released a video for hew new track “Female Vampire.”
The song is lifted from the Norwegian artist’s forthcoming new album, Blood Bitch, scheduled for release on the 30th of September.
Says Hval of the new promo clip: “What does eternity feel like? How do you ‘live’ when there is no death? Usually, the vampire is depicted as a lonesome, all-knowing and ancient creature combining violence, aggressive sexuality and deceitful youth.
“The pack behind the video for ‘Female Vampire’ wanted to explore vampiric eternity in a different narrative: in a group of romancing friends. The vampire friends move through their hometown of Oslo, partaking in public and private rituals of moving together.
“We also wanted to combine ideas from old vampire trash movies and modern trashy iPhone videos, resulting in an enigmatic world of time-lapse like slow motion where everything is always moving, or moving on. Not there, or not there yet.”
Hval will head out on the road next month for a series of tour dates in support of the new album.
The track listing for Blood Bitch is:
01. “Ritual Awakening”
02. “Female Vampire”
03. “In The Red”
04. “Conceptual Romance”
05. “Untamed Region”
