What better way to celebrate your band getting back together after ten long years than to get all of your most famous friends to film themselves singing and dancing to your newest track?

With the release of their first album since 2005 approaching, this is clearly what Portland-based punk band Sleater-Kinney was thinking, enlisting Fred Armisen, Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Miranda July, J Mascis, Natasha Lyonne, Connie Britton, Ellen Page, Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and more for the film clip for the title track to No Cities To Love.

Filmed on New York City subway platforms and Hollywood rooftops, the video features band members Carrie Brownstein (who co-stars in Portlandia with Armisen), Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss singing in-tune, while Natasha Lyonne (Orange Is The New Black) and Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) sing into their computers in a way that explains why they went with acting.

Judging from Ellen Page’s utterly joyful dancing and Evan Rachel Wood’s head-banging, they like what they hear.

Highlight: when Fred Armisen, who as an SNL alumnus should be pretty recognisable in New York City, gets mistaken as a busker and has coins thrown at him.

No Cities To Love is set to be released on January 20. Friend of the band Annie Clark (St. Vincent) has already heard the album, and told Rolling Stone that it’s their best yet: “Everybody’s so on point. Corin’s voice sounds so urgent and Carrie’s guitar playing is super guttural and acrobatic, and Janet is just slaying the drum set. And then the songs themselves just have so much heart to them.”

They might be a little biased, but the film clip’s stars seem to agree.
