Sleater-Kinney Announces First Album in a Decade


Videos by American Songwriter

After an eight-year hiatus, Sleater-Kinney has gotten the band back together. The Washington trio announced a January 20 release date for No Cities to Love, their first album together since 2005’s The Woods.

No Cities to Love, releasing via Sub Pop, was recorded at San Francisco’s Tiny Telephones Recordings with producer and longtime collaborator John Goodmanson. Of the album, Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein tells NPR Music: “We had no desire to revisit sounds and styles and paths we had treaded before. But in order to move forward, Corin and I worked together in a way that was more reminiscent of earlier albums like Dig Me Out. Meaning that we would write just the two of us and then bring songs to Janet later on in the process. I think we had to go back to an earlier model of writing in order to reacquaint ourselves with the language of the band. It’s a sonic vernacular that isn’t easily translated into other contexts in which we’ve played.”
