Lingua Ignota (real name Kristin Hayter) has followed up last month's single PENNSYLVANIA FURNACE with another beautiful track and video, PERPETUAL FLAME OF CENTRALIA.

The song – which features on upcoming album SINNER GET READY, due out on August 6 via Sargent House – comes accompanied by an eye-catching video and fashion collaboration with Ashley Rose Couture.

“Upon meeting Kristin, I felt a genuine connection, both personal and creative, which has only grown this past year working together," says Ashley. "To watch someone turn so much pain into art and continue to pick themself up and push on over and over again is exactly what this collection is about. I want the person who wears these pieces to feel strong and empowered no matter how overwhelming or suffocating life can become. Even when it continues to return. You can keep fighting or let the fog swallow you.“

Lingua Ignota continues: "I first saw Ashley’s work long before I was able to wear it, and it spoke to me as a longtime fan of the aesthetics and theory of fashion. Her designs transform the wearer into something outside themselves, armour that allows one to embody fantasy or nightmare. Working collaboratively with Ashley has been a dream, I have been able to explore the ideas of my record with wearable art. I chose to wear her mask on the cover of SINNER GET READY because it held the sharp dichotomy of my music; it was chaste and erotic, exquisite and grotesque.

"For the PERPETUAL FLAME OF CENTRALIA video, the expressive capacity of her garments are meditated upon in juxtaposition to the stark, desolate quality of my song. It is the material vs. the immaterial, and the result is languid and dreamy and wonderfully claustrophobic.”
