Kim Gordon (formerly of Sonic Youth) has announced her debut solo album, No Home Record, and shared its new single, “Sketch Artist,” via a video for the track. No Home Record is due out October 11 via Matador. Below is the “Sketch Artist” video, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Justin Raisen produced No Home Record, which was recorded at Los Angeles’ Sphere Ranch and also features contributions from Shawn Everett (Jim James, The War on Drugs) and composer/filmmaker Jake Meginsky. Loretta Fahrenholz directed the “Sketch Artist” video, in which Gordon plays a ride-share driver. Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson also makes an appearance. The album’s title is inspired by French/Belgian director Chantal Akerman’s film No Home Movie. The album includes “Murdered Out,” a song Gordon shared back in 2016.

Gordon had this to say about the album in a press release: “Why a solo record? And why now? 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 the end of Sonic Youth in 2011, Gordon has also been part of the experimental rock duo Body/Head with Bill Nace, put out her 2015 memoir Girl In a Band, done some acting, and opened various solo art exhibitions.

1 Sketch Artist
