Tanya Tagaq Announces New Album Unveils Aorta

Inuit artist and throat singer Tanya Tagaq follows up 2014’s Animism with a brand new full-length album. Retribution, which is set for release on November 18th in Europe (October 21st in North America), is “album about rate: rape of women, rape of the land, rape of children, despoiling of traditional lands without consent.” And includes a cover of Nirvana’s “Rape Me”!

According to the press release, “Retribution is Tanya Tagaq’s portrait of a violent world in crisis, hovering on the brink of destruction. It’s a complex, exhilarating, howling protest that links lack of respect for women’s rights to lack of respect for the planet, to lack of respect for Indigenous rights. It’s an album about celebrating the great strength of women, it’s about rejecting the toxic, militaristic outlook that’s taken over the world since the rise of Western industrial capitalism, and is rapidly destroying human life support systems through climate change and pollution.

Recently “Aorta“, a track off of the forthcoming album, was unveiled and can be heard below.
