Sleater-Kinney kicked off the year by announcing a new album, produced by none other than Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent. It was later revealed to be titled The Center Won’t Hold and due through Mom+Pop. Today, they’ve offered up the album’s first single, “Hurry on Home”, as well as tour dates.
In an interview with NPR in January, Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein said of the their collaboration with Clark, “We always planned on getting back in the studio — it was just a matter of when. If there is an overarching principle to this album, it’s that the tools on which we were relying proved inadequate. So we sought new ones, both metaphorically and literally.”
Take a listen to “Hurry on Home” below via its lyric video directed by Miranda July.
As for Sleater-Kinney’s upcoming 31-date North American tour it kicks off on October 9th in Spokane, WA, and runs through the end of November. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 14th. You can get them here, and see the full itinerary below.
