Sleater-Kinney Detail ‘Dig Me Out’ Covers Album, Share Courtney Barnett’s Version of ‘Words and Guitar’

    Sleater-Kinney is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Dig Me Out with a new tribute album, Dig Me In: A Dig Me Out Covers Album, which comes out on October 21. The band had previously announced that artists including Wilco, St. Vincent, Courtney Barnett, Low, the Linda Lindas, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires, NNAMDÏ, and TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe would be contributing to the record. Today, they’ve shared the full tracklist, along with Courtney Barnett’s take on ‘Words and Guitar’. Check it out below.

    “The artists who appear on Dig Me In have not so much covered the 13 original songs, but reinterpreted and reimagined them,” Sleater-Kinney said in a statement. “Through added layers or the subtraction of guitars and drums, they provide a new way into the songs. Fresh rage, joy, pain, reclamation, slyness, and longing. Other interpretations slow down or stretch out the songs, trading urgency for contemplation, weariness or even a hint of ease.”
