Helena Deland and Ouri Share First Song as Hildegard
Helena Deland and Ouri have shared their debut single as Hildegard. You can hear the pair of Montreal-based artists come together on "Jour 2" below.

Deland and Ouri describe "Jour 2" as "a psychedelic mantra that labours to reconcile the dissociated self by contrasting eeriness and softness." The single's video, directed by Melissa Matos, cuts between drone shots of rolling hills and the pair dancing under darkening skies.

As for the project's namesake, the two artists drew inspiration from the life and work of mystic, healer, composer and visionary 12th century nun Hildegard of Bingen, invoking her as a carrier of the magic they felt working with each other.

"Jour 2" will appear on Hildegard's forthcoming debut album, due out this year through Chivi Chivi/section1.

Last year, Deland released debut full-length Someone New, which Exclaim! named one of the 50 Best Albums of 2020.

Earlier this month, Ouri shared new song "Too Fast No Pain," which follows 2020's "Shape of It."
