Debut Solo Album To Love Is To Live Out Now
Songwriter, singer, and multi-disciplinary artist Jehnny Beth has released a Planningtorock electronic remix of her single ‘Flower’. The track is originally taken from Jehnny Beth’s critically-acclaimed debut solo album, To Love Is To Live.
The pulsating electro remix sees Planningtorock, who has remixed tracks for the likes of Lady Gaga, Perfume Genius and Robyn, take the simmering, sensual track into a completely different sonic territory. “I was very touched when Jehnny asked me to make this remix,” Planningtorock said. “Her voice is a force of nature, full of power and brilliant attitude. It was such a pleasure to make this track.” Written about a pole dancer at notorious strip club Jumbo’s Clown Room in Los Angeles, ‘Flower’ details the complicated depths of sexuality tangled in a fever dream reverie of desire and loss.
Best known as the charismatic lead singer and co-writer of UK band Savages, who received Mercury Prize nominations for both of their now-classic two albums Silence Yourself (2013) and Adore Life (2016), Jehnny Beth’s voice, lyrical perspective, and incredible live performances have captivated audiences since the early Aughts. But it’s in To Love Is To Live that Jehnny Beth truly steps into – and claims – the spotlight. The album is a sonic tour de force, a dark cinematic meditation on the strange business of being alive. Throughout the record, she explores the deepest reaches of her creative consciousness…wrapped in a whirlwind of sounds. Indeed, in accessing those darkest and least comfortable parts of herself, Jehnny Beth has created a piece of work that is stunningly cathartic, fiercely abrasive, delicately exposed, and rich for discourse.
