Sleater-Kinney’s ‘Hurry On Home’ Video Cleverly Uses The Song’s Lyrics To Text With An Ex

Over the past few days, there have been rumblings that a new song from Sleater-Kinney is on the way, and that their upcoming album is titled The Center Won’t Hold. Today, one of those things was confirmed: There is a new song from Carrie Brownstein and company, and they just shared the lyric video for “Hurry On Home” (which, like the rest of the album, was produced by Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent).

It’s a more clever and involved clip than a lot of lyric videos tend to be. The whole video is a screen recording of an iPhone, and is focused on a text conversation (featuring the song’s lyrics) with a former flame: Carrie Brownstein. The concept is well-executed, and it’s an entertaining presentation of the band’s new single.

Brownstein said of the song in a press release, “How does brokenness walk? Or move through the world? 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 or iterations of depression or loneliness — in the middle of the chaos.”
