Sleater-Kinney share “The Future Is Here,” the second new track to be revealed from their forthcoming album, The Center Won’t Hold. The album was produced by St. Vincent and is released on the 16th August through Mom + Pop.
Sleater-Kinney are confirmed to perform on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on the 19th June.
The Center Won’t Hold is the tenth album from the iconic trio comprised of Carrie Brownstein (guitar/vocals), Corin Tucker (guitar/vocals) and Janet Weiss (drums). Brownstein explains, “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 oriterations of depression or loneliness -- in the middle of the chaos.” Weiss adds, “I think for Carrie and Corin it was liberating to explore a different sound palette. Annie (St. Vincent) has a lot of experience building her own music with keyboards and synthesizers so she could be our guide to help us make sense of this new landscape and still sound like us.” Tucker says, “The Center Won’t Hold drops you into the world of catastrophe that touches on the election. 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.”
“The Future Is Here” follows “Hurry On Home,” the first single unveiled from the forthcoming record and greeted with unanimous praise.
