On Jan. 20 Sleater-Kinney will release No Cities to Love, the riot grrrl trio’s first album in 10 years. Recently all three members—Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss—sat down with NPR’s All Songs Considered for an in-depth interview on the new LP, their hiatus, and how the band has changed since they were last together.

“We wrote in my basement,” says Brownstein explaining the album’s beginnings. “It took on many permutations, and eventually we settled on a process that was a little more akin to what we had done in the early years, partially because Corin and I had to kind of reacquaint ourselves to the very specific vernacular that she and I speak, musically. And so, [she] and I would work on songs and then bring them to Janet, instead of jamming ... It’s almost telepathic. I think that Corin and I can complete each other’s musical sentences in a way that never ceases to surprise me.”

Thoughout the near 40-minute conversation—much to the delight of Sleater-Kinney fans—portions of three brand new songs were previewed. Click here to listen to the entire interview and the new material.
