Award-winning singer, songwriter and producer, Jenny Wilson, returns this month with the first cut from her forthcoming fifth solo record, Exorcism. The track, ‘Rapin*’, deals with Wilson’s experience of sexual assault a few years back and the lyrics, which the musician published in full on her Facebook page today, do not leave much to the imagination.

In a brief statement about Exorcism Wilson says: “This is the hardest thing I have ever done. On so many levels.”

With the onslaught of stories coming out in the advent of the revelations about Harvey Weinstein and the resultant #MeToo and #TIMESUP campaigns, testimonials of sexual harassment and assault are now – hopefully - less likely to be brushed under the carpet and indeed, Wilson was among 2,000 women within the Swedish music industry, whom towards the end of last year signed a letter published by the Dagens Nyheter newspaper, confronting their assailants with an enough-is- enough warning of “We know who you are”.

Wilson will launch the album at the Copenhagen International Documentary Festival in March, where she will perform live and subsequently DJ at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, one of the largest exhibition spaces for contemporary art in Northern Europe.

The new album comes more than four years after Wilson’s hugely successful Demand The Impossible!, which won the Swede two Swedish Grammis and the single release will be accompanied by a hard-hitting animated video created with Swedish artist, Gustaf Holtenäs. You can catch a NSFW snippet from the video and the track below.


Rapin* is out on 26 January and Exorcism follows on 23 March, both on Gold Medal Recordings. Jenny performs at CPH:DOX on 15 March.
