Preview Sleater-Kinney’s Surprise New Song Possibly From “1/20/15″ Reunion Album

People have been speculating about a Sleater-Kinney reunion forever — especially since Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss’ other band Wild Flag broke up a year ago — and Brownstein didn’t exactly shoot down the idea in her interview with Stereogum last January. Nor did the announcement of career-spanning box set Start Together quell those rumors. In fact, now that Start Together is showing up in the mail, it’s only fueling the rumor mill. As reader Kevin Zidek of Chicago points out — and first rumored on a vinyl message board earlier this month — the box set comes with a 7″ marked “1/20/15″ (a Tuesday) featuring a previously unreleased Sleater-Kinney song, reportedly titled “Bury Our Friends.” We haven’t been able to hear the music yet, but Zidek tweeted some photos. Check out his tweets and some additional photos he emailed us below.

Sleater-Kinney’s publicist has declined to comment for now. In the meantime, this seems like a good time to get excited.

UPDATE: Wondering Sound found what appears to be the cover of a Sleater-Kinney release called No Cities To Love via Shazam:

UPDATE 2: Here’s an exclusive clip of “Bury Our Friends.”
