Kim Gordon has announced her debut solo album.

Despite having numerous collaborative projects under her belt, 'No Home Record' will be the Sonic Youth co-founder's first release solely under her own steam. It will arrive on October 11 through Matador Records.

The record's announcement follows the opening of Gordon’s solo exhibition She Bites Her Tender Mind at IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) in Dublin and Lo-Fi Glamour at Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. Gordon said:

“‘Why a solo record? And why now? I don’t know, but it wouldn’t have happened without the persistence of Justin Raisen [producer].  Living in LA the last few years it feels like home, but the transience of the place makes it feel sometimes like no home.”

'No Home Record' will feature nine tracks, including the previously released 2016 single Murdered Out and the alternative electronic, noise rock opener Sketch Artist, which you can watch a video for below. The latter was directed by Berlin-based artist and filmmaker Loretta Fahrenholz.

'No Home Record' tracklist:

  1. Sketch Artist
  2. Air BnB
  3. Paprika Pony
  4. Murdered Out
  5. Don’t Play It
  6. Cookie Butter
  7. Hungry Baby
  8. Earthquake
  9. Get Yr Life Back

Photo: Natalia Mantini What are we to expect from a Kim Gordon solo album? Something that sounds like a reproduction of her old band, Sonic Youth? Unlikely. Pop songs? Same. ‘No Home Record’ is an intriguing answer, because it sounds like something Kim Gordon might make—surprising, unpredictable, difficult—but it’s been crafted from a palette that allows us to believe it’s actually nothing like something Kim Gordon might make. It is happy out there on its own.
