Sleater-Kinney Return With Cheeky Lyric Video, New Fall Tour Dates

Filmmaker Miranda July helmed playful “Hurry On Home” clip, set entirely on her iPhone

Ever wonder what it’d be like to booty call Carrie Brownstein? Now’s your chance. The playful lyric video for Sleater-Kinney‘s long-awaited new single “Hurry On Home” follows text banter between Brownstein and director Miranda July.

As one might expect, the results are far from your average lyric clip. After seeing the Instagram announcement that art-pop musician/noted queer icon Annie Clark (a.k.a. St. Vincent) would be producing the rock trio’s upcoming album, July tries to win back Brownstein’s affection by text-spamming her lyrics: “I’ve made my mood your mood” and “Disconnect me from my skin.”

In a statement, drummer Janet Weiss enthused, “I think for Carrie and Corin [Tucker] it was liberating to explore a different sound palette.” Brownstein added, “Instead of just going into the studio to document what we’d done, we were going in to explore and to find the essence of something. To dig in deeper.” Tucker described the recording process as a “manic energy of empowerment.”

The band is expected to release more music this year in anticipation of their forthcoming album, which follows 2015’s No Cities to Love. They will tour behind the LP this fall on a North American trek that launches October 9th in Spokane, Washington and runs through November 23rd in Seattle, Washington; general tickets go on sale Friday, June 14th at 10 a.m. local time.
