Kim Gordon mocks the gig economy with her new single, ‘Air BnB’

The track is the second release from her forthcoming album, No Home Record

After announcing her first solo album, No Home Record, and dropping its first track “Sketch Artist” last month, Kim Gordon has now shared the record’s second single, “Air BnB”.

The accompanying visual explains that the Sonic Youth co-founder was going to shoot the video in an AirBnB but that “there wasn’t any money to make it”. The rest of the clip instead describes what the “mid-century modern” flat “on top of the Hollywood Hills” would look like. 

Mocking Instagram-ready homes, Gordon explains that everything in the apartment would be black and white – including the dog – and there would be photos of other cities on the walls. The musician satirically describes how she would glide in slow motion through the apartment in a “red lace Rodarte top and a red leather cape which I take off at some point”, crawling along the shag carpet with her guitar.

The track continues Gordon’s ridicule of the hospitality gig economy, following a previously-released press image which sees the artist lying in a pristine showhome, clutching a cushion that says ‘hello gorgeous’. 

According to an album biography by artist Elaine Kahn, Gordon will explore the idea of “purchasing utopia” throughout No Home Record, and meld “cultural critique, divulgence, and humour” in its lyrics.
