Annie Clark, known more commonly by her stage moniker St. Vincent, has been announced as the producer of Sleater-Kinney’s upcoming album. The announcement came via Twitter, announced by both Clark and S-K, corroborated by an interview with NPR Music. STV hinted at the collaboration when she released a cover of S-K’s track, “Modern Girl” in 2018.
If there is an overarching principle to this album, it’s that the tools on which we were relying proved inadequate. So we sought new ones, both metaphorically and literally.
– Carrie Brownstein to NPR Music
Aside from a live album titled Live In Paris, that dropped in 2017, Sleater-Kinney has only released one studio album in the last decade, the widely lauded No Cities To Love. The female trio has been regarded as one of the most influential bands of the 90s, contributing to the legendary Alt-Rock explosion in the Pacific Northwest. With Clark at the helm, who is up for multiple Grammy’s at the upcoming ceremony, the new project will surely come with much anticipation and significant expectations from fans. Keep your eye out for the official album announcement in the upcoming months.
