Norwegian musician and novelist Jenny Hval announces her new album Classic Objects, out on 11 March. Classic Objects is a map of places; past places, like the old empty Melbourne pubs Hval’s band used to play in, public places Hval missed throughout lockdown, imagined, future places, and impossible places where dreams, hallucinations, death and art can take you. It is interested in combining heavenly things and plain things.
Classic Objects is Hval’s version of a pop album. Every song has a verse and a chorus. There are interchangeable moments of complexity, interesting melodies throughout, and a feeling of elevation and clarity in the choruses. Heba Kadry mixed it to sound as though it’s played through “a stereo in a mysterious room.”
Since 2019’s The Practice of Love, Hval published the English translation of her third novel, Girls Against God, and released an album under the name Lost Girls. Hval will play London’s EartH venue on 11th April 2022.
