Ahead of her summer European tour kicking off tonight, Kim Gordon has released a new non-album single, ‘ECRP’, with an accompanying video once again featuring, this time as director, her daughter, Coco Gordon Moore. In it, quick-cutting shots of a variety of New York street scenes augment the Justin Raisen-produced song’s disorienting sonics, as Gordon intones of “rumors of free speech” and “ashes on the nightstand”.


Having just wrapped a run of North American dates, including a packed gig at New York’s Central Park SummerStage, Gordon will begin a European run tonight (June 25) at KOKO in London, before playing Birmingham’s O2 Institute2 on June 26th and Glastonbury’s Woodsies stage on June 30th. Full upcoming live dates can be found below.

Rolling Stone spoke on Kim’s recent live show in Brooklyn and said, “Kim Gordon is at the height of her powers right now, making music that’s both noisy and liberating, and unremittingly challenging any expectations that listeners still have for her”. WBEZ in Chicago wrote, “Slowly, the music built from a quiet, introspective drone into a frenzy of distortion, electric guitars and string instruments, vocals both ethereal and yowling, soaring into the night air. It was a transfixing, cathartic experience”.

Earlier this year, Gordon released her second solo album, The Collective, to critical acclaim, with Vulture and Pitchfork calling it one of the best albums of the year. Gordon also made her explosive solo late night television debut, performing ‘BYE BYE’ on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Watch HERE.

Recorded in Gordon’s native Los Angeles, The Collective follows her 2019 full-length debut No Home Record and continues her collaboration with Raisen (Lil Yachty, John Cale, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Charli XCX, Yves Tumor), with additional production from Anthony Paul Lopez. The album advances their joint world building, with Raisin’s damaged, blown out dub and trap constructions playing the foil to Gordon’s intuitive word collages and hooky mantras, which conjure communication, commercial sublimation and sensory overload.
