Sleater-Kinney will unleash their new album, The Center Won’t Hold, in one month’s time. Already we’ve heard two singles off the St. Vincent-produced record, “Hurry On Home” and “The Future is Here”. A third is being unleashed today in the title track.
“The Center Won’t Hold” sees the indie rock icons wrestling more with politics, namely the infamous 2016 Election and its disastrous aftermath. “I need something pretty to help me ease my pain/ I need something ugly to put me in my place,” the band sings.
This latest offering “drops you into the world of catastrophe that touches on the election,” said the group’s Corin Tucker. “And almost like a mission statement, at the end of that song, it’s like the band is finding its way out of that space by becoming a rock band.”
