With their highly anticipated new album now just a few weeks away, Sleater-Kinney have unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Can I Go On' follows on from a string of previously shared tracks including 'Hurry On Home', 'The Future is Here' and the title-track in previewing their ninth LP 'The Center Won't Hold', which is set to arrive on the 16th August via Mom + Pop Records.
Speaking about their latest offering, frontwoman Carrie Brownstein said, “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. 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.”
