Listen to Courtney Barnett on the main track of Sleater-Kinney Covers LP


Sleater-Kinney has revealed all the details of a previously announced 25th anniversary cover collection in tribute to his beloved album Dig me. The aptly named Dig Me In: A Dig Me Out Covers Album will be released on October 21 and is led by Courtney Barnett’s rendition of “Words and Guitar.”

Also on the album are St. Vincent, Wilco, Margo Price, Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires, Low and The Linda Lindas. 25% of net proceeds from Dig Me In will go to SMYRC (Sexual & Gender Minority Resource Center).

“The artists who appear on Dig Me In haven’t covered the original 13 songs so much, but reinterpreted and re-imagined them,” the group explains. “Through added layers or subtracted guitars and drums, they provide a new path in the songs. Fresh rage, joy, pain, recovery, cunning and desire. Other interpretations slow down or stretch the songs, trading urgency for contemplation, weariness or even a hint of ease.

Here is the list of titles for Dig Me In: A Dig Me Out Cover Album:

“Dig Me”, St. Vincent
“One More Hour”, Wilco
“Turn It On”, Margo Price
