Jenny Hval is about to release her sixth record ‘Blood Bitch’ – it’s a concept album about vampires and menstruation. It’s out on 30 September on the excellent Sacred Bones.

Following the release of first single ‘Female Vampire’, this track, ‘Conceptual Romance’ is arguably the most accessible thing the Norwegian songwriter has ever done. Have a listen below:

Here’s her official line on the theme of this new record.

“‘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.”
