Kim Gordon's Body/Head to release debut album

Body/Head, the electric guitar duo comprised of Kim Gordon and Bill Nace (X.O.4, Vampire Belt, Ceylon Mange), have announced details of their debut album, Coming Apart.

The album will be released as a double LP, CD and digital album by Matador Records on September 16.

Body/Head began as a largely instrumental project after Gordon announced her separation from Thurston Moore in late 2011.

According to a press release reported on Spin, Gordon sings a great deal on the new album. "[Her] vocals now have become an intrinsic part of their musical architecture," the statement reads. "They have even started writing and playing 'songs' now, compositionally distinct from their purely aleatory origins, but still featuring lots of built-in improvisational space."

"It feels a little like rebuilding or starting over in some way, but I have a whole kind of vocabulary of music and experiences to bring to that," Gordon said of Body/Head's new direction. "It's just music — just more music."

So far, Body/Head have put out three limited-pressing releases.
