New single is her first under her own name in over 30 years

Kim Gordon has shared the first track to be released under her own name for over three decades in the form of 'Murdered Out' - you can listen to it above.

"'Murdered Out' as a look, is now creeping into mainstream culture as a design trend," says Gordon in a lengthy description of the track. "Black-on-black matte is the ultimate expression in digging out, getting rid of, purging the soul. Like a black hole, the supreme inward look, a culture collapsing in on itself, the outsider as an unwilling participant as the 'It' look.

"I met the über talented Justin Raisen, the producer, by chance. He was working on a project with another artist and kept sending me tracks to listen to with the possibility of getting me to sing on one of them. When I learned I could make up my own lyrics, I was in. With the remaining bits of unused vocals, he started what would be 'Murdered Out'."

The track features drums from Warpaint's Stella Mozgawa and is the first in what Gordon promises to be more solo material to come.
