Zola Jesus got the attention of music insiders when during a recent interview she revealed that to create her fourth LP, "Taiga" she had to overcome some fears and that it felt like as if it were her first. The singer admitted that she is always concerned about feeling "too poppy" with her music and often when she writes a pop song she is so perturbed or embarrassed by the song that she covers it up with noise or distortion.

However, on this album and with the song "Dangerous Days" which she wrote in 2011 for the "Contaus" album but did not include on it because it sounded too poppy to her at the time. The difference with her now is that she has matured and accepts that what she is good at which is writing pop songs and no longer feels the need to destroy the songs which is what she used to do in the past. 
She finished the writing of the song "Dangerous Days" and released it as a single for her "Taiga" album which will be released in October 2014.

The making of this album felt like a debut for her because she had to overcome so much fear and confidence issues that she possessed and now she is so confident in her ideas and musical choices. This album represents Zola Jesus, an artist unafraid to express herself and let everyone know that not only is she present but she is not cloaking herself in the vulnerability that prevented her from being who she really is. 
She attributes this confidence from her working on the album "Versions" and also when she performed at the Guggenheim show with a string quarts and J.G. Thrilwell and there was nowhere to did which she found empowering because it showed her that she did not need to hide. 
Zola Jesus has overcome her fears of being judged or failing and her fans and the music industry are going to reap the benefits in the form of great music from this talented artist with her 2014 album "Taiga".
