Sonic Youth co-founder and full-time legend Kim Gordon has just announced that she’ll be releasing her first ever solo album! Out on 11th October via Matador Records, ‘No Home Record’ follows 2016’s ‘Murdered Out’ single and was produced by Justin Raisen in LA.
“‘Why a solo record? And why now?,’” Kim says in the album’s press release. “I don’t know, but it wouldn’t have happened without the persistence of Justin Raisen. Living in LA the last few years it feels like home, but the transience of the place makes it feel sometimes like no home.”
To celebrate, she’s also shared the video for deliciously dark track ‘Sketch Artist’, directed by Loretta Fahrenholz. Describing the vid, Loretta says: “‘Sketch Artist’ is a haunted car ride. Kim drives as ‘Unter’ Pool summons passengers throughout nighttime LA. The city drifts by, passengers intermingle in the back seat and Kim’s deadly stare shocks pedestrians along her route.”
