The album garnered year-end accolades from publications including FACT (#1), The Line Of Best Fit (#1), The Independent (#4), The WIRE (#6), The Quietus (#10), The Times (#19), Consequence of Sound (#21), Pitchfork (#23)The Guardian (#26) and a great deal more. Hval kicks off 2017 by announcing more Blood Bitch tour dates and sharing the video for 'The Great Undressing.'

Director Marie Kristiansen, comments below on the NSFW video.
 
“I don’t want to overcomplicate the message; it’s my opinion that the audience should interpret this film as it suits them.  I will, however, tell you what inspired me to make the film. From an intellectual point of view I was intrigued by what would happen if you watched a naked woman totally ignorant about her own nudity going about a normal day. Would she be perceived as a sexual object? Or would her nakedness and femininity become something ordinary and natural? I have not tried to steer the film in the direction I thought was right, it´s more of an experiment that you should be the judge of. From a spiritual point of view the film explores loneliness and isolation in a world where capitalism and blending in are the two ruling factors.”
