We’ve already heard Yoko Ono collaborate with Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon on one single, and a full album is now on the way.
The six-track record, simply titled YOKOKIMTHURSTON, will be released on September 25 in the United States and September 24 in the UK. Sonic Youth and their individual members have a long history of collaborative records – with Boredoms’ Eye, Jim O’Rourke, Merzbow and more – but this marks a collaboration with a true legend of the New York avant-garde scene that spawned Sonic Youth, and so you have to imagine it’s a record of special significance to Moore and Gordon.
The future of Sonic Youth is, of course, still uncertain following Moore and Gordon’s divorce after 27 years of marriage.
