Sleater-Kinney is back! The band—which now is a duo consisting of Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker—announced their new album Path Of Wellness, coming out on June 11 via Mom + Pop. After The Center Won’t Hold and Janet Weiss’ departure, it’s understandably a weird time to be a Sleater-Kinney fan. The “Hurry On Home” single cover featuring Brownstein’s real butt will forever be seared in our memories of the last pre-pandemic year. But this time, the focus seems to be more on the collaboration between Brownstein and Tucker. According to a press release, the duo self-produced the album for the first time in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.


They shared the first single from the upcoming record and it’s called “Worry With You.” It’s a funky love song that manages to actually sound a bit more like old Sleater-Kinney, so that feels pretty promising. The video for it is pretty cute, showing a queer couple cohabitating, going through the ups and downs of the too familiar feeling of being stuck at home 24/7 together.

The duo is also heading on a co-headlining tour with Wilco, that’ll be opened by NNAMDÏ, beginning in August. Tickets go on sale May 14th.
