Courtney Barnett, St. Vincent, more to cover Sleater-Kinney on 25th anniversary edition of ‘Dig Me Out’

Sleater-Kinney have announced that they’ll be releasing a covers version of their 1997 album Dig Me Out in honour of its 25th anniversary.

Though they’ve yet to announce a release date, it’ll arrive sometime this summer. In honour of the 25th anniversary of Dig Me Out, Sleater-Kinney are releasing a new version with covers from Courtney Barnett, St. Vincent, Wilco, Tunde Adebimpe, The Linda Lindas, and more.

Marking their third full-length, the album was originally released on April 8th, 1997 via Kill Rock Stars. Dig Me Out was Sleater-Kinney’s breakthrough record, boasting some of their biggest material to date.

Check out the announcement below.

“To commemorate 25 years of Dig Me Out, we’re releasing a covers album featuring some of our closest friends and admired artists! We can’t wait to share these unique renditions with you,” Sleater-Kinney write on Instagram.

A portion of the proceeds from the album are set to be donated to their local LGBTAIA+ Youth Center, SMYRC (Sexual/Gender Minority Youth Resource Center). SMYRC provides “a safe, harassment-free space for queer and trans youth ages 13-23, where you can create art, play music, and join in on our open mic nights, drag shows, and support groups,” according to its website.

The new version of Dig Me Out is also set to feature covers from Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, Margo Price, and Low.

Last year, Sleater-Kinney shared their first album as a duo, Path of Wellness. It was Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker’s first release since the departure of drummer Janet Weiss.
