In uscita il 30 settembre 2016 via Sacred Bones, Blood Bitch è il quarto album di Jenny Hval successore di Apocalypse, girl, disco il cui concept ruota attorno ad uno studio sul sangue, in particolare «quello più puro e potente, il più banale e terrificante: la mestruazione», afferma la musicista nella nota stampa.

Di seguito una descrizione completa del disco fornita dalla stessa artista che vi riportiamo in lingua originale: «Blood Bitch is also a fictitious story, fed by characters and images from horror and exploitation films of the ’70s. With that language, rather than smart, modern social commentary, I found I could tell a different story about myself and my own time: a poetic diary of modern transience and transcendence. There is a character in this story that is a vampire Orlando, traveling through time and space. But there is also a story here of a 35-year old artist stuck in a touring loop, and wearing a black wig. She is always up at night, jet lagged, playing late night shows – and by day she is quietly resting over an Arp Odyssey synthesizer while a black van drives her around Europe and America. So this is my most fictional and most personal album. It’s also the first album where I’ve started reconnecting with the goth and metal scene I started out playing in many years ago, by remembering the drony qualities of Norwegian Black Metal. It’s an album of vampires, lunar cycles, sticky choruses, and the smell of warm leaves and winter».

Ad anticiparlo, il brano Female Vampire condiviso per lo streaming il 25 maggio 2016 (da cui viene estratto anche un videoclip diretto da Jenny Berger Myhre) e il videoclip di Conceptual Romance (31 agosto). Il 4 gennaio 2017 viene condiviso il video di The Great Undressing.
