After announcing LAND TRUST: BENEFIT FOR NEFOC (Northeast Farmers of Color Land Trust) with the Kathleen Hanna collaboration "Mirrorball" earlier this month, Lyle and Cooler have teamed up with Kim Gordon for the benefit album's second single "Debt Collector".

Gordon said, "I’m a bit obsessed with what’s happening with these big financial corporations like Blackrock and Blackstone buying up houses, becoming landlords. They pay far beyond a house's value, putting home ownership even out of the range of the middle class – much less working class."

Cooler continued, "Kim created a very powerful lyrical statement on real estate and land, and the companies that have been purchasing (and laundering) properties at the expense of low-income and working class housing. Her lyrics really resonated with me because I’ve been displaced from three homes as an adult and I hold a constant anxiety that I won’t be able to obtain stable housing at all – let alone be able to afford a home."

Lyle added, "Vice sent me these blown out synth and drum tracks that were just so sick and full of dread. I wanted to leave space for the breathiness in Kim's vocals and to make something that sounded fresh, different from the big guitars associated with Sonic Youth. So I grabbed a L'Oreal all day lipstick off my desk and jammed it under the strings of my guitar and got this. One take."

LAND TRUST: BENEFIT FOR NEFOC features 16 tracks in total and will see all proceeds donated to the Northeast Farmers of Color Land Trust. The benefit album came together when Lyle and Cooler wanted to use their time in lockdown to help others. Cooler said, "Like everyone, I was extremely confused about how I could use my limited skill set and resources—which mostly exist in the music and video worlds—to help others from this place of isolation."

After deciding to work on an album to help fundraise, the duo worked remotely, with Cooler sending Lyle the drum parts from his home studio in LA, and letting Lyle improvise guitar riffs from her home in upstate New York. The duo then reached out to other artists to collaborate, including Hanna, Kim Gordon, Kelley Deal, Rachel Aggs, The Linda Lindas, Katie Alice Greer, Palberta and many more. Lyle explains, "Working on these songs everyday with Vice—and the hope that others would work with us—was like an anchor for me during that really difficult era."

"Debt Collector" featuring Kim Gordon is out now. Erica Dawn Lyle and Vice Cooler's LAND TRUST: BENEFIT FOR NEFOC album will arrive 3 June, and is available to pre-order on Bandcamp now.
