Two weeks away from the release of her latest studio album, Norway’s Jenny Hval has dropped her latest single ‘Period Piece’.

Released as part The Adult Swim Singles Program, ‘Period Piece’ is the third track to be shared from upcoming album Blood Bitch, after the release of ‘Conceptual Romance‘ and ‘Female Vampire‘ earlier this year. And it’s very much cut from the same cloth; reverberant vocals harmonising over steady, repetitive drum and bass lines making for yet another darkly haunting and beautiful experience. You can hear the track below, or download it for free at Adult Swim.

 

Talking about the new album Hval describes the concept behind Blood Bitch;

an investigation of blood. Blood that is shed naturally. The white and red toilet roll chain which ties together the virgins, the whores, the mothers, the witches, the dreamers, and the lovers.

Blood Bitch is out September 30th via Sacred Bones.

Hval will also be on tour all over North America and Europe this autumn. All dates are below.
