Zola Jesus @ Guggenheim Museum, May 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

In May of 2012, Zola Jesus teamed up with legendary industrial pioneer JG Thirlwell for a special performance at NYC's Guggenheim Museum. Thirlwell arranged a number of her songs for a string quartet, and Zola eventually recorded studio versions of them. That collection, which is fittingly called Versions, is due out on August 20 via Sacred Bones. You can take a listen to the album opener "Avalanche (Slow)" at the bottom of this post. Cover art and tracklisting for Versions are also below.

Zola currently has just a few upcoming 2013 U.S. tour dates. One of those is a performance at the Garfield Park Conservatory on October 24 with Thirlwell. Tickets for the Chicago show are on sale now.

All known Zola Jesus tour dates, album info. for Versions, and a stream of "Avalanche (Slow)" lie after the jump...
