Zola Jesus premieres Johnny Jewel remix via WeTransfer

In Latest News, Magazine by pg-admin Comments

Zola Jesus is pleased to share the video for Ash to Bone (Johnny Jewel Remix) which was co-directed by Zola Jesus and Jenni Hensler, exclusively available on WeTransfer’s editorial platform WePresent for 48 hours. The track is taken from Zola Jesus‘ new album of previously unheard tracks and remixes titled Okovi: Additions, due out April 6th via Sacred Bones.

Based on a track originally from 2017’s Okovi, this remixed version arose from a mutual, longstanding appreciation. “As a longtime fan of Johnny Jewel’s work,” Nika Roza Danilova explains “it was surreal to hear him re-work ‘Ash To Bone.’ Hearing his arrangement was like experiencing a collision of musical worlds. It was as if this is how the song was always supposed to sound.” While the remarkably prolific Jewel muses “I had the acapella playing on loop one morning in the piano room. Her lyrics were so vividly mournful through the hazy fog…I turned over the hourglass, pulled back the curtains, opened the window, & let Nika’s voice soar.”

Ash to Bone (Johnny Jewel Remix)‘ appears on Okovi: Additions, due out April 6 via Sacred Bones Records, which couples four previously unreleased tracks from the Okovi sessions with four remixes by a diverse cast of artists spanning a spectrum of genres, including the aforementioned Johnny Jewel, along with Katie Gately, Wolves in the Throne Room, and Joanne Pollock (formerly one half of Poemss with Venetian Snares’ Aaron Funk).

Zola Jesus will soon head to Europe for select shows, followed by a run of co-headlining dates with Alice Glass in North America, dubbed the ‘Snow Blood Tour
