Sacred Bones is ready to release the singer and producer's next album.
Real name Nika Roza Danilova, Zola Jesus is a singer and producer with roots in the US's indie scene. Since early in her career she's been a regular name on Sacred Bones Records, a Brooklyn-based label with an experimental edge, and earlier this year made her debut on Warp Records with The Misanthrope Meditation Mix, a collaboration with Prefuse 73. Conatus shows her continuing to grow out of the lo-fi aesthetic of her earlier records and settling into a dark brand of electronic pop. The album was co-produced with her friend Brian Foote and features guest appearances from Nick Johnson, the drummer in her live band. You can hear the first single, "Vessel," on Zola Jesus's SoundCloud page.
