A new book by the legendary band's bassist, entitled Girl In A Band, will be released next year.

Pitchfork reports that the book will detail Gordon's "childhood, her life in art, her move to New York City, her love affairs, her marriage, her relationship with her daughter and her band."

A press release for the book says: "At the heart of the book is the examination of what partnership means—and what happens when it dissolves", referring to the band's split in 2011 and her break up with husband and bandmate Thurston Moore the same year.

Girl In A Band will be published in the US by Dey Street Books on 24 February 2015.
