Following her album debut on James Murphy’s label DFA, German-born NYC-based singer and DJ Perel reveals cover artwork for her new album Jesus Was An Alien.
The forthcoming project releases via Kompakt on May 13th following the lead single featuring Marie Davidson earlier this month.
Speaking on the new album, Perel states: “Jesus Was An Alien is a discourse about whether Jesus was an actual alien, but also a social debate about what is and implies religion today.” She offers up her provocative second record – her first on Kompakt – as a soundtrack for the listener’s own journey through the intricacies and ironies of modern belief.
Perel also shares her ‘Jesus Was An Alien’ tour dates including the first live shows in Berlin at Haus Zenner and London at Moth club (presented by fabric) and DJ sets at the infamous Panoramabar/Berghain this easter weekend and closing set at Sónar by Night B2B with Jennifer Cardini.
