Jenny Hval ends her Battle

Norwegian progressive pop singer Jenny Hval has launched a stream of her track That Battle Is Over from third album Apocalypse, Girl.

It’s released on June 8 via Sacred Bones, ahead of a five-date UK tour that’s part of a wider European journey.

Hval says: “That Battle Is Over is inspired by a great wish to sing karaoke. These songs are flat like that; they’re so direct that there’s no background. Trying to create one makes the song more shallow – or worse, makes the listener obsolete.”
