– RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘PERIOD PIECE’ FOR THE ADULT SWIM SINGLES PROGRAM
– NEW ALBUM ‘BLOOD BITCH’ DUE SEPT 30TH VIA SACRED BONES
– UK TOUR DATES THIS OCTOBER 

“Hval’s approach has always been equal parts instinctive, intellectual and whimsical, but Blood Bitch confirms her singular methodology is now at its most surgically precise and bold. In realising her uncontainable ambitions, one might even suggest it represents Hval’s coming of age.” – 8/10 Uncut
“It’s an amalgamation of past, present and future, and a dazzling realisation of self from one of the most thought-provoking songwriters today” 7/10 – Crack
“Hval’s voice and reflections are powerful as ever; Blood Bitch is a curious study of a restless musician fighting to keep her insecurities at bay. An understated but intriguing album by a perpetually fascinating artist.” – 4* The Skinny
“The Norwegian artist alternatively blasts and hypnotises the world with power, beauty, femininity and devil-may-care creative force little seen on so-so pop. There is so much to love and turn up on this record; she’s a one off wonder” – Monocle
“Disquieting, disquisition concerning horror films and menstruation from Norway’s singular aural sculptor” – 4* MOJO

The Adult Swim Singles Program continues to deliver with the release of Norwegian artist Jenny Hval‘s ‘Period Piece‘ from her forthcoming album ‘Blood Bitch’ due September 30th via Sacred Bones and available for free download at AdultSwim.com/singles. Featuring a steady bass-line under lilting vocals and harmonies, all the pieces come together for a beautiful composition on this one.

Co-produced with noise producer Lasse Marhaug, Jenny Hval’s upcoming album Blood Bitch’ is “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.” It is Hval’s most fictional yet most personal album. It’s out September 30th via Sacred Bones.

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