header Check Out: David Lynch remixes Zola Jesus

Throughout her career, Goth-pop songstress Nika Roza Danilova (aka Zola Jesus) wasn’t too crazy about remixes, telling Pitchfork recently, “I feel like reinterpreting something can remove its context.” That is, however, until legendary director/musician/coffeseur David Lynch approached Danilova about reworking the Conatus standout “In Your Nature”, at which point she finally caved. You just don’t say no to the guy who did this.

The end result is an infinitely different track musically, with new instrumentation provided by Lynch and his engineer Dean Hurley. What was once gorgeous and ethereal has now become ragged and hard-edged, with a decidedly dark, driving energy that’s the definition of all Lynch-ian creations. Check it out below.

The remix will be included on the upcoming single release of “In Your Nature”, which will be available February 21st digitally and on 7″ via Sacred Bones. Zola Jesus will also be on tour throughout early 2012, beginning on February 1st in Phoenix, AZ. Peep the full tour schedule below.
