Sleater-Kinney are ‘unf***able,’ ‘unlovable,’ and ‘unlistenable’ on ‘Hurry on Home’

When Sleater-Kinney posted about being “unfuckable,” “unlovable,” and “unlistenable,” we didn’t exactly know how to react to their declarations. Should we be offended or scream “hell yeah” to the skies? Well, it’s okay that we were a little confused because it’s all part of their brand new song.

On Wednesday (May 29), the Washington-founded act released the lyric video for their first new song since 2015’s No Cities to Love.

Titled “Hurry on Home,” the clip for the tune is a fresh take on lyric videos. Instead of the typical lyrics scrawled across the screen, the video plays out like an iMessage conversation between Miranda July (the video’s director) and frontwoman Carrie Brownstein. The video also includes July scrolling through Brownstein’s Instagram, looking at virtual Tarot cards, and even searching for “Better Butt” videos on YouTube after taking a selfie of herself.

Watch the lyric video for “Hurry on Home” above.

“Hurry on Home” is the first single off Sleater-Kinney’s upcoming ninth studio album, The Center Won’t Hold. Though the album does not have an official release date, it looks like it may see a fall time debut. As per the band’s previous confirmation, the record was produced by Annie Clarke aka St. Vincent. The album will be released via Mom + Pop Records.

In support of the album’s impending release, Sleater-Kinney has also announced plans to hit the road later this year.  Their upcoming fall tour will find the act performing at venues across the continent throughout October and November.

The excursion begins on Oct. 9 at the Fox Theatre in Spokane and concludes a month and a half later on Nov. 23 at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle.
