JG Thirlwell scores work for Zola Jesus

JG Thirlwell has transposed songs by Zola Jesus (aka Nika Roza Danilova) for a string quartet. The scores were originally developed for Danilova's performance at the Guggenheim in New York, for which she ditched electronics and replaced them with a string section. The tracks will be released this month by NY based label Sacred Bones as an album titled Versions.
