This Friday, Oct. 11, Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth will release her first solo album, No Home Record.

Gordon has done a lot over the years, releasing music and art with a variety of projects, but not — yet — an solo album. On Monday, Gordon premiered a single from the record, a jangly cut named “Hungry Baby”:

It comes after the recent premiere of the song “Sketch Artist,” which had a music video depicting Gordon as a rideshare driver cruising around Los Angeles in a dark, twisted little clip:

Some insight about the album via its news release:

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.”
