Check out Kim Gordon’s disorientating new single ‘ECRP’

Kim Gordon has dropped a discordant new single, ‘ECRP’, to coincide with a run of dates starting tonight (June 25).

Following on from her trap-inspired album ‘The Collective’ earlier this year, Gordon’s new one-off single is a noisy, experimental affair that speaks of “rumours of free speech” and “ashes on the nightstand”.

The video, meanwhile, was directed by Gordon’s daughter Coco Gordon Moore and features various shots of New York street scenes.

Check out ‘ECRP’ below.

Gordon plays London’s Koko tonight, kicking off a European tour, and will head to Birmingham for a gig at the O2 Institute2. The tour also includes various festival appearances at the likes of Glastonbury, Open’er and Roskilde.

In a four-star review of ‘The Collective’, NME wrote: “Here the 70-year-old balances her less than commercial sensibilities with crunchily on-trend production and relatable lyrics about rotten capitalism and fragile masculinity – if these sound like themes she explored during Sonic Youth’s ‘90s heyday, it only goes to show how little has changed.”


“It’s notable, though, how contemporary her distorted art-punk sounds, given the ongoing grunge resurgence and the fact that Olivia Rodrigo’s taking The Breeders on tour this year. Despite her new album’s title, here is an icon who’s spent more than four decades making truly individual art.”

‘The Collective’ was also named as one of the best albums of 2024 so far, described in a nutshell as “a clangorous, cutting experiment with trap beats and abrasive noise”.

Gordon’s second solo album features singles such as ‘Psychedelic Orgasm’‘I’m A Man’ and ‘BYE BYE’. It follows Gordon’s 2019 debut solo album ‘No Home Record’.
