Jenny Hval’s new EP, The Long Sleep, is now up for pre-order at Sacred Bones Records. The deluxe edition is on purple vinyl, limited to 350 copies, and packaged in a screen-printed, wrap-around sleeve.
The Long Sleep foregrounds the act of composition itself, letting the melodies and structures reveal the other elements of the songs. All of the songs on the EP recycle the same compositional motives, but manipulate them into very different shapes that take them further and further out of their original, “life-like” context.
The EP is being released on May 25.
