Zola Jesus has shared a new video for her recent single “Exhumed” taken from her upcoming album Okovi, which is due September 8th via Sacred Bones.

As well as this, Zola Jesus has announced that Sacred Bones will release a Stridulum LP on September 8th, which collects the previously released Stridulum and Valusia EPs together as one volume.

Director & long time collaborator Jacqueline Castel explains the thoughts behind the “Exhumed” video:

Exhumed was personally conceived of and created whilst processing death – of family members and of relationships – and much like Okovi’s core themes, it is a reflection on loss, heritage, and the often painful personal growth we must harness in the face of life’s constant evolution. Shot intimately in one day, in the exhausting heat within the woods surrounding Nika’s Wisconsin home, we sought to capture personal apocalypse, utilizing experimental shooting techniques to further our emotional goals. Practically and metaphorically, we fought to find the light in the darkest of forests.
