Zola Jesus has announced plans to release a new album titled Taiga. The singer will released her fifth LP this October, which will be a followup to last year’s Versions, a collection of classical arrangements picked from 2011′s Conatus. There’s a short trailer announcing the new album below.

Traiga will be released through Sacred Bones Records. Though she didn’t offer a new song, Zola Jesus released a 50-second teaser trailer, directed by Kyle Hurley, that gives us a taste of what we can expect. The singer is experimenting with heavier sounds. Check it out:

In 2012 the singer revealed she was finding it stressful not being able to work on new material due to her touring commitments, saying:

“I’m starting to feel a little overwhelmed with ideas. It’s been getting a little stressful knowing I still have so much touring to do when I feel my ideas are starting to fill me up.”

There’s no word on a tour yet.
