Back and better than ever! Girl group Sleater-Kinney recruited some big names for the title track off of their comeback album No Cities to Love.
The music video for “No Cities to Love” made its debut on Thursday, Jan. 15, and features a laundry list of famous faces. The musicians made calls to their celebrity pals for the clip, which shows the stars singing the lyrics of the song from, fittingly, their homes and cities.
Fred Armisen, who stars alongside Sleater-Kinney frontwoman Carrie Brownstein in Portlandia, opens the video. He is shown sitting on a city sidewalk and playing the keyboard as he sings.
As the visuals for “No Cities to Love” progress, appearances are made from New York and L.A. by the likes of Norman Reedus, Ellen Page, Connie Britton, Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Miranda July, and Natasha Lyonne. The stars rock out to the latest offering from Sleater-Kinney, which is made up of Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss.
The three rockers reunited late last year after going on a hiatus in June 2006. The last album from the Pacific Northwest-based band, The Woods, debuted in May 2005 to huge critical acclaim.
The group’s first album, the self-tilted Sleater-Kinney, hit stores in 1995. Brownstein, Tucker, and Weiss are expected to release their eighth studio album later this month.
The trio performed together for the first time in nine years on Thursday evening, hitting the Late Show in New York City. The musicians joined host David Letterman to play a new single, “A New Wave.”
