Norwegian musician Jenny Hval has released the debut single from her upcoming album, “Apocalypse, girl,” called “That Battle Is Over,” and it’s clear her personal wars have just begun.

“That Battle Is Over” nurtures a slow bluesy waltz that releases some powerful lyrics. “We’re at the edge of history……feminism’s over… and socialism’s over ..yeah say I can consume what I want now” she sings, and the song burns out in a haze.

“Apocalypse, girl,” Hval’s third album, is being called a collection of “transgressive pop music,” but hearing the first single only whets our appetite for her free-thinking style and bold, fiery words.

“Apocalypse, girl” will be released June 9 on Sacred Bones. She’s on tour supporting St. Vincent and Perfume Genius.
