Zola Jesus

New York Times is currently streaming Zola Jesus' full album TAIGA for a limited time. Press Play is the place where The New York Times debuts noteworthy new music. TAIGA drops October 7th, a day before she launches her record release world tour in San Francisco on Oct. 8th which also takes her to major cities across the globe including stops in Los Angeles, New York, England, Germany, France and Switzerland through November. 

TAIGA, her fifth studio album, is very pop-centric and accessible which is a contrast to her usual calming melodies which are peppered with delicate synths painting a rustic and industrial landscape. 

According to Vogue, Zola Jesus (aka: Nika Danilova) experiments with pop music for her upcoming album Taiga which drops October 7th.  Rolling Stone describes it as “a surprising set of 11 pop songs, replete with catchy beats and stuck-in-your-head hooks,” and Paste says, "The whole album thrives on a sense of clarity for the singer/songwriter."
