Carrie Brownstein Says Sleater-Kinney Is Recording New Music

Carrie Brownstein says Sleater-Kinney are working on a new album

With Portlandia kicking off its final season on January 18, Carrie Brownstein and co-star Fred Armisen sat down with Billboard to discuss life after their quirky sketch show. Brownstein revealed that she’s keeping busy, in part, by getting back into the studio with Sleater-Kinney bandmates Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss, but she makes it clear that fans should manage their expectations about if and when they hear the recordings. From Billboard:

She throws up her hands defensively when asked about a timetable. “Now, just so you know, we’re going to do this very slowly,” she says. “It’s an ongoing conversation.”

Hopefully it won’t take any longer than the decade between 2005’s The Woods and 2015’s No Cities to Love.

Brownstein already seems to have a busy 2018 ahead of her. According to Billboard, her feature-length directorial debut, MGM’s Fairy Godmother, is due out this year.
