Sleater-Kinney have shared a new surprise EP called the Frayed Rope Sessions, an audio and visual release featuring reimagined versions of three songs from last year’s Little Rope.

The EP, recorded at Flora Recording in Portland, OR — the same studio that birthed Little Rope — and was produced by longtime collaborator John Goodmanson. All proceeds from the EP’s Bandcamp sales will benefit Noise For Now, a national initiative that enables artists to financially support grassroots organizations that work in the field of Reproductive Justice, including abortion access.

In a statement about the EP, the duo said:

“We wanted to step back into these songs, reimagine and revisit them, both for ourselves and for the listener. The different arrangements expose the songs anew, getting at their core or the outer edges. Frayed Rope was a way for us to travel through the songs and perhaps arrive at a different destination.”

Alongside the EP,  the band has also shared the video series “Little Rope Unraveled,” where Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein discuss the backstory of songs “Say It Like You Mean It,” “Hunt You Down” and “Untidy Creature.”
