A collaboration between Jlin and the late SOPHIE has been released by Unsound Festival.
The Polish festival had commissioned “JSLOIPNHIE” as part of its first-ever album Intermission, which collected 15 songs responding to the pandemic year through sound and music. The album, which also featured Tim Hecker, Slikback and Moor Mother, was released last Friday on Bandcamp and dedicated in memory of SOPHIE.
“SOPHIE was a huge inspiration for the music scene, and one of our very favorite artists,” the festival said in a statement, per Rolling Stone. “We invited Sophie to Unsound Krakow 2014 and 2018 and Unsound NYC 2020—every show was special—as well as to contribute to the Intermission album. No doubt, SOPHIE’s influence will continue to be felt for years to come.”
The moody, unsettling track is the first posthumous release by SOPHIE since the 34-year-old artist’s untimely death on January 30. Hear it below:
