Following its soulful, almost jazzy opening with Hval intoning over floating piano, the lead single “Jupiter” blooms with shuffling percussion, and as Hval’s crystal cooing layers, it swells into a simple hymn-like chorus. “When I wrote the music for this song in 2015, it had no lyrics, and I did not understand where it came from. 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,” says Hval. “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.” Hval’s upcoming North American tour runs coast-to-coast throughout May 2022.
