Kim Gordon has shared the intense new single ‘Psychedelic Orgasm’ and announced tour dates across the UK, Europe and North America. Listen to the track and find ticket details below.

The single is the latest to be shared from the former Sonic Youth guitarist, taken from her upcoming solo album ‘The Collective’. Set for release this Friday (March 8), the LP marks her second full-length album as a solo artist, and has already seen her share tracks including ‘I’m A Man’ and ‘BYE BYE’.

Now, just days before Gordon unveils the full release, she has shared one final teaser of the project in the form of the trippy, disorientating ‘Psychedelic Orgasm’.


Tongues hanging out/ Bodies on the sidewalk/ Driving down Sunset/ Zombie meditation/ Getting caffeinated,” she sings in the hypnotic and intriguing vocal melody.
People lining up/ Drive-by situation/ Route 68.”

The track also comes alongside an experimental music video, directed by Gordon and musician/filmmaker/producer Vice Cooler. “With its quick cuts and upside-down tableaus of desiccated pumpkins, giant inflatables and shopping mall escalators, the Los Angeles-set clip is as disorienting as ‘Psychedelic Orgasm’ itself,” reads a description. Watch it below.

‘The Collective’ follows Gordon’s 2019 debut solo album ‘No Home Record’ and continues her collaboration with producer Justin Raisen (Lil YachtyJohn CaleYeah Yeah YeahsCharli XCXYves Tumor). According to a press release, the new LP “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”.

As well as releasing the third and final single, the singer, songwriter and guitarist has also shared details of a UK and European tour, as well as further live shows across North America.

For this, two shows have been lined up in the UK: an opening slot at London’s KOKO on June 25 and a slot at the O2 Institute2 in Birmingham the following night. European dates include slots in Munich and Prague, as well as several festival appearances.

Kim Gordon’s debut solo album was given a three-star review, with NME describing it as “tense, abrasive work” that “injects a hint poppier thrust into Gordon’s no-wave experimentations with her other project, Body/Head (a point of difference most obvious on the juddering ‘Sketch Artist’.”

It added: “Remarkably her first solo album, this is a record that surprises, despite its author’s truly enormous legacy.”
