Sleater-Kinney unveil St. Vincent-produced single “Hurry On Home” from forthcoming album

This post was originally published on this site

Previously thought dead and buried, the fully-breathing and thriving Sleater-Kinney have returned once more with a fresh single. “Hurry On Home” marks the beloved band’s first piece of music from a new album — both allegedly called The Center Won’t Hold and coming out via Mom + Pop — their follow-up to 2015’s post-hiatus rocker No Cities To Love.

While it should be clear from the go that it is indeed a Sleater-Kinney song, “Hurry On Home” has an added level of near-apocalyptic urgency to it that distinguishes it from the rest of their catalog. This is probably because it was — along with the rest of new album — produced by St. Vincent.

If you had previously imagined a super-hero team-up between Sleater-Kinney and St. Vincent, it would probably (and I mean this in the most positive of ways) come pretty close to sounding like “Hurry On Home.” Working together seems to have layered a new sonic palette on top of a familiar sonic dynamic, and the result is ear-catching, and makes the prospect of a full album’s worth of collaborations exciting.

You can listen to and watch the Miranda July-directed lyric video for “Hurry On Home” down below. While there, you’ll also see the band have announced a bunch of dates for this fall where they will play this new song live, presumably along with at least like three to four others. A “fall tour,” if you will. All those details can be found down below as well.
