Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier Goes Solo


Stereolab have been on indefinite hiatus since last year. The band’s new-ish album Not Music is coming November 16 from Drag City, featuring music recorded at the same time as their last album, 2008’s Chemical Chords. Co-leader Laetitia Sadier is also going solo, releasing her first-ever official solo album, The Trip, on September 21 via Drag City.

The Trip features collaborators like Richard Swift, April March, and Julien Gasc and Emmanuel Mario, who worked with Sadier on her former solo-project-turned-band Monade. Sadier recorded the album in two sessions in the UK and U.S., with Swift and Mario serving as producers. As well as Sadier’s own songs, the album features covers of Wendy & Bonnie’s “By the Sea” and Les Rita Mitsouko’s “Un Soir, Un Chien”. We’ve got the album’s tracklist below.
