Sleater-Kinney – “Hurry On Home”

Sleater-Kinney are back! Earlier this year, the legendary trio announced that they would have a new album out this year and that it was being produced by St. Vincent, and they’ve followed through. Their new album is called The Center Won’t Hold, as we found out last week, and it’ll be out later this year via Mom + Pop Records. That’s a move from their old home at Sub Pop, who put out their 2015 comeback album No Cities To Love.

In a press release, Carrie Brownstein says: “We’re always mixing the personal and the political but on this record, despite obviously thinking so much about politics, we were really thinking about the person — ourselves or versions of ourselves or iterations of depression or loneliness — in the middle of the chaos.”

Today, they’re releasing the album’s first single, which is called “Hurry On Home.” The lyric video plays out like a text conversation on Miranda July’s phone. Her wallpaper is a photo of her and Brownstein. She scrolls through Brownstein’s Instagram page and then texts her the new single’s lyrics: “Hurry on home to me. I’ve set a place for two.” Brownstein texts back, “I thought we were on a break.” July turns on the front-facing camera to check out her butt and then goes to YouTube and searches “Better butt.” Brownstein ends the text chat: “Here.”
