The first new Kathleen Hanna song in more than four years leads the tracklist for LAND TRUST: Benefit for North East Farmers of Color, a charity album due for a June 3 release on Bandcamp. The project was assembled by Hannah’s Bikini Kill bandmate Erica Dawn Lyle in tandem with The Raincoats’ Vice Cooler, and Hannah’s contribution, “Mirrorball,” is out today (May 6).
In the wake of the COVID-necessitated cancellation of Bikini Kill’s spring 2020 tour, Lyle says she and Cooler “wrote songs together remotely via file sharing and then asked a bunch of our friends to help us finish the songs.”
Other artists making appearances on LAND TRUST include Kim Gordon, Mike Watt, The Raincoats, The Linda Lindas, Deerhoof’s Satomi Matsuzaki, Slant 6’s Christina Billotte, Alice Bag, Kelley Deal and Shopping’s Rachel Aggs.
Bikini Kill is in the midst of an extensive world tour that visits Austin tomorrow (May 7) and Sunday.
