Multidisciplinary artist Kristin Hayter has announced her upcoming album under the name Lingua Ignota. Sinner Get Ready will be released on August 6 and will mark Hayter’s debut album for Sargent House. Hayter also shared the lead single “Pennsylvania Furnace,” which comes with a weird, self-directed music video. Find out below.
Sinner Get Ready follows Lingua Ignota’s 2019 album Caligula. The new LP was inspired by the landscape of rural Pennsylvania, where Hayter lived as she began making the record. The visual for Hayter’s new single was also shot in this part of the country. In addition to directing, Hayter shot, edited and managed the artistic direction of the video. The clip nods to an 18th-century legend of a blacksmith whose dogs return to drag him to hell after throwing them into his furnace.
Unlike his previous LPs, Sinner Get Ready was designed with traditional instruments from the Appalachian region. Hayter recorded the album with his main collaborator, producer and engineer Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets in Rhode Island. Ryan Seaton helped with the arrangements and additional performances, and J. Mamana also played banjo on the LP.
