Jenny Hval airs her visual accompaniment to new single "That Battle Is Over"

Jenny Hval has unveiled another piece of her upcoming Apocalypse, girl album that's coming out next month. It's called "That Battle Is Over".

Zia Anger - who directed the "Innocence Is Kinky" video - said of the concept: “I guess it goes back to '96 for me, and the ‘girl power’ mantra I've been repeating since I learned it from the Spice Girls. The female experience is far from singular (and even further from this white, suburban, American-retro dream), yet around every corner there is a common pain, a wisdom of ecstasy, and an obsession with the uncanny that we all share. Collaborating with an entirely female creative team (with the support of a few great gentlemen) gave birth to an exploration of Jenny's song and an inquiry into the sarcasm that pulses through it.”

Melissa Auf der Maur also stars in the video.

Apocalypse, girl is out 8 June on Sacred Bones.
