Sleater-Kinney share new track ‘Can I Go On’

It’s the latest look into their upcoming album ‘The Center Won’t Hold’.

With their St. Vincent produced new record ‘The Center Won’t Hold’ set to impact on 16th August, Sleater-Kinney - now just Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker following Janet Weiss’ departure earlier this month - are sharing the latest glimpse of what’s to come.

Releasing ‘Can I Go On’ today, it’s lighter musically than the previous releases but packs a punch in the lyrics. “Sell our rage, buy and trade, but we still cry for free every day…… maybe I’m not sure I wanna go on at all.” Carrie explains. “In this song, a woman’s desire is used against her, so she turns it into a sinister infectiousness. The narrator finds herself on the brink of self-annihilation, grappling with the paradox of an internal darkness at odds with the pressure to outwardly perform modes of joy, relatability, and likability.”
