Kim Gordon Debut Solo Album

  • Published in News

Kim Gordon announces her first-ever solo album, No Home Record, to be released October 11 on Matador Records.  The announcement of No Home Record follows the recent 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. Among its nine tracks, No Home Record features new single 'Sketch Artist' accompanied by a video directed by Berlin-based experimental artist Loretta Fahrenholz and includes a cameo from actress and writer Abbi Jacobson.

No Home Record was produced largely by Justin Raisen (Charli XCX, Ariel Pink, Sky Ferreira) at Sphere Ranch in Los Angeles, along with contributions from Shawn Everett (Jim James, The Voidz, The War on Drugs) and composer/filmmaker Jake Meginsky (L’appel Du Vide). Gordon’s solo debut album’s title is a nod to the French-Belgian director Chantal Akerman’s film No Home Movie .

“‘Why a solo record? And why now?,’” Gordon mused of the upcoming solo debut. “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.”

Since co-founding the legendary Sonic Youth in the early 80s, Kim Gordon has remained at the nexus of music, fashion, art and (more recently) books and film. In the past few years alone, Gordon has debuted in the #1 spot on the NY Times Bestseller List with her 2015 memoir Girl In A Band, acted alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Jonah Hill under the direction of Gus Van Sant (in 2018’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot), released music and performed as one half of Body/Head alongside Bill Nace, and opened multiple solo-exhibitions at internationally renowned museums.
