Kim Gordon (formerly of Sonic Youth) is releasing her debut solo album, No Home Record, on October 11 via Matador. Now she has shared another song from the album, “Air BnB.” It was shared via an amusing visual featuring white words on a black screen explaining that they couldn’t afford to make a music video at a fancy Air BnB as planned and instead describing the Air BnB and what the video would have been like. Watch and listen below.

When No Home Record was announced Gordon shared its new single, “Sketch Artist,” via a video for the track. 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 played a ride-share driver. Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson also made 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 previous 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.
