Goners is the fifth studio album by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Laura Gibson. “If we’re already goners, why wait any longer, for something to crack open.” This first line is not only found in the lyrics of the title track, but has also become a kind of mantra for Laura Gibson. Actually, every song that she has ever written deals in some way or another with the subject of sorrow, yet this time she has gone one step further and Gonersseemed a fitting title as it references both the past, as well as the future. The word is used for two types of people, those, who loose themselves in those who they love and those, who are directly facing death.

For the album, Gibson engaged a multitude of befriended musicians, including guitarist and master of synthesizers Dave Depper (Death Cab forCutie), drummer and percussionist Dan Hunt (Neko Case) and stand-up bassist Nate Query (The Decemberists); to this she added horn and woodwind arrangements with Kelly Pratt (St. Vincent and David Byrne, Pater John Misty) and imaginative string sections with Kyleen King (Stephen Malkmus, Case/Lang/Veirs).
