Kate Pierson - Mister Sister

Via Stereogum:
B-52s singer Kate Pierson has announced her debut solo album and released a video for the lead single. Guitars And Microphones was executive produced by Sia, who collaborated with Pierson on the songwriting. Tim Anderson produced the album, and the Strokes’ Nick Valensi plays on it. Lead single “Mister Sister” is a trans anthem that updates Pierson’s signature sound with a modern sheen; given that so much current music hearkens back to the B-52s’ 80s heyday, it’s interesting to see her style boomerang around like this. Fred Armisen appears in the video, which was directed by Monica Coleman.
Monica Coleman is Pierson's partner of 11 years. The album is due in February and Mister Sister is on sale at iTunes today.
