Former Everything But the Girl vocalist and Massive Attack collaborator Tracey Thorn has announced a new solo album, Record, and shared a video for its first single, “Queen.” Record is due out March 2 via Merge. Below is the “Queen” video, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Record is Thorn’s first album of entirely original material in seven years. In a press release Thorn jokes that the album contains “nine feminist bangers.”

“I think I’ve always written songs which chronicle the milestones of a woman’s life,” she elaborates. “Different ages and stages, different realities not often discussed in pop lyrics. If 2010’s Love and Its Opposite was my mid-life album-full of divorce and hormones-then Record represents that sense of liberation that comes in the aftermath, from embarking on a whole new ‘no fucks given’ phase of life.”

Each preorder of the album comes with a Tracey Thorn zine featuring “20 pages of handwritten lyrics and photos from the recording sessions.”

Carol Morley directed the “Queen” video. Thorn had this to say about the song: “It’s a great opener for the album. Driven along by Ewan Pearson’s unashamedly glittering electro-pop production, and drums and bass from Warpaint’s Stella and Jenny, it features me playing electric guitar for the first time in a while, and singing my heart out.”

Record Tracklist:

1. Queen
2. Air (feat. Shura)
3. Guitar
4. Smoke
5. Sister (feat. Corinne Bailey Rae)
6. Go
7. Babies
8. Face
9. Dancefloor
