Today, WeTransfer and Zola Jesus can present the new video for "Ash to Bone (Johnny Jewel Remix)” which was co-directed by Zola Jesus and Jenni Hensler. The video is exclusively available on WeTransfer’s editorial platform WePresent for the first 48 hours.

Based on a track originally from 2017’s Okovi, this remixed version arose from a mutual, longstanding appreciation. "As a longtime fan of Johnny Jewel’s work,” Zola Jesus explains “it was surreal to hear him re-work ‘Ash To Bone.’ Hearing his arrangement was like experiencing a collision of musical worlds. It was as if this is how the song was always supposed to sound.

The video for "Ash to Bone (Johnny Jewel Remix)” is viewable now on WePresent alongside an exclusive interview with Zola Jesus here: http://we.tl/zola-jesus

"Ash to Bone (Johnny Jewel Remix)” appears on the album Okovi: Additions, due out April 6 via Sacred Bones Records, which couples four previously unreleased tracks from the Okovi sessions with four remixes by a diverse cast of artists spanning a spectrum of genres, including the aforementioned Johnny Jewel, along with Katie Gately, Wolves in the Throne Room, and Joanne Pollock (formerly one half of Poemss with Venetian Snares' Aaron Funk). The link to pre-order Okovi: Additions is HERE.
