Here's introducing Zhala, the first musical artist to sign to Robyn's Konichiwa Records. Zhala will make her global network television debut performing her track 'Prophet' live at the Swedish Grammis tonight. This haunting track heads up her debut EP, co-produced with Mathias Oldendeep in the heart of Malm" last winter
Robyn announced the signing via her Twitter the other day and had the following to say about Zhala joining Konichiwa: "Zhala makes the most interesting music that takes you on a ride with each song. It's so broad and has so much integrity at the same time. When Zhala sings the heavens open and the stars come down to hover over my head and I feel like anything is possible. I'm so happy to be a part of taking her music to a new audience." Zhala responded by saying "It feels right to release my music on Konichiwa Records. This EP, 'Prophet' is religious rave music. With Konichiwa, there's a deep understanding and vast knowledge of music and the industry since Robyn is an artist herself. I really like that."
Alongside 'Prophet' with it's intense Eastern synth lines and the mesmerising layered pop of 'Efter Livet', the debut EP will also feature the official release of 'Slippin' Around', a darkly epic track that provided the very first glimpse of Zhala in 2012.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
