Metric frontwoman (and Broken Social Scene collaborator) Emily Haines is releasing a new solo album, Choir of the Mind, under the name Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton on September 15 via Last Gang/eOne. Previously she shared a video for the album’s first single, “Fatal Gift.” Now here’s another song from the album, album opener “Planets,” via its video. Justin Broadbent directed the clip, which features Haines in a stalk room, with a baseball bat. Watch it below. Broadbent was also responsible for the album’s cover art, which is also below, as is the album’s tracklist.

Haines released a fantastic solo album, Knives Don’t Have Your Back, 11 years ago, in 2006, also under the name Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton. That was followed in 2007 by the EP What Is Free to a Good Home? But since then it’s been all quiet on the solo front, with Haines focusing mainly on Metric

Choir of the Mind was written over the last few years, in between Metric moments, and was recorded in 2016 at Giant Studios, on the West end of Toronto. Metric’s Jimmy Shaw co-produced the album with Haines, and it was engineered by Kenny Luong. Sparklehorse drummer Scott Minor, who also appeared on the original Soft Skeleton recordings, appears on the track “Legend of the Wild Horse.”

Broken Social Scene released a new album, Hug of Thunder, on July 7 via Arts & Crafts and Haines is featured on it.
