Jenny Hval hit a fantastic new stride in 2016, releasing one of the most lauded albums of the year in ‘Blood Bitch’, while also presenting some of the year’s most intriguing live performances. 'Blood Bitch' is without question one of the albums of the year and if you haven’t done so yet we urge you to give it a spin. 
 
Now, the Norwegian songstress returns with a truly gripping (and NSFW) video for new single ‘The Great Undressing’. Speaking on the reveal, director Marie Kristiansen revealed…
 
“I don’t want to overcomplicate the message; it’s my opinion that the audience should interpret this film as it suits them.  I will, however, tell you what inspired me to make the film. From an intellectual point of view I was intrigued by what would happen if you watched a naked woman totally ignorant about her own nudity going about a normal day. Would she be perceived as a sexual object? Or would her nakedness and femininity become something ordinary and natural? I have not tried to steer the film in the direction I thought was right, it´s more of an experiment that you should be the judge of. From a spiritual point of view the film explores loneliness and isolation in a world where capitalism and blending in are the two ruling factors.”
 
As ^ you ^ can ^ tell ^ the video is a must-watch. But be warned, make sure that your boss isn’t around!
