Sleater-Kinney have shared the fourth single off The Center Won’t Hold, their new album out 16 August. Watch the lyric video below.
‘Can I Go On’ pulls the listener in with its upbeat, hooky guitar riffs and catchy chorus, but delivers a contrastingly pained message of existential despair; “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.”
Sleater-Kinney’s tenth new album, produced by St. Vincent, is a personal and political record, which feels fitting as the feminist icons set a new bar for punk’s political insight and emotional impact. Now, at the height of their formidable powers, Brownstein and Corin Tucker (guitar/vocals) continue to challenge themselves, break all the rules and push boundaries.
