Metric’s Emily Haines has announced her first solo album in more than a decade. The follow-up to 2006’s ‘Knives Don’t Have Your Back’, new LP ‘Choir Of The Mind’ will be released on 15 Sep. The first single, ‘Fatal Gift’, is out now.

“Most of the songs on the album came to me out of some recent major changes in my life, and others were composed when my life felt more stable”, says Haines. “Of them all, ‘Fatal Gift’ is the song that has lived with me the longest, through many incarnations. This is the right time for the definitive version to be heard. The song embodies for me the undeniable fact that no matter how high I climb, that voice, pulling me back to my essential self remains. We all pursue symbols of achievement, but utopian material promises are hollow”.
