Alternative music and cultural icon Kim Gordon returns with her second self-titled album 'The Collective'

On first single "BYE BYE", out January 16th, Gordon and collaborator Justin Raisen (Charli XCX, Sky Ferreria, Yves Tumor) shatter the limiting genre tags of punk, electronic, and spoken word poetry to form an innovative new sound built on blown out electronics, trap beats, and squealing guitars, setting the tone for what will be one of the most adventures albums of 2024.

Since co-founding the seminal Sonic Youth in the early 80's, Gordon has remained at the nexus of music, art and (more recently) books and film. She has debuted in the #1 spot on the NY Times Bestseller List with her 2015 memoir Girl In A Band, acted under the direction of Gus Van Sant (in 2018's Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot), released music and performed as one half of Body/Head alongside Bill Nace, and opened multiple solo-exhibitions at internationally renowned museums. Released in 2019, Kim Gordon's debut album No Home Record received wide-ranging critical acclaim, including from The New York Times ("The art star queen of New York cool"), The Guardian ***** ("brilliantly weds noise textures to pop dynamics"), Sunday Times 'Album Of The Week' ("brutally good), Vogue ("immediate, loose, and liberated….as ferocious as she's ever been"), Vanity Fair ("finds new ways to sound experimental") and Pitchfork 'Best New Music' ("thrilling solo debut lives at the vanguard of sound and performance"). She debuted the album live with a full band at BBC 6 Music Festival in London before the start of the pandemic, and more recently has played select live dates at festivals including Riot Fest, Primavera and Corona Capital. Gordon's output since No Home Record has encompassed art book/visual journal No Icon on Rizzoli, a single with former Dinosaur Jr. frontperson J Mascis, an exhibition of her paintings at New York's 303 art gallery, a commission for The Museum im Bellpark in Kriens in collaboration with artist Josephine Pryde, and a dance and music stage performance with choreographer Dimitri Shambles. Elsewhere, Gordon hosted a public sale of her iconic wardrobe, with all proceeds going to the Downtown Women's Center in Los Angeles.
