New Music: The B-52s Kate Pierson “Mister Sister”

Stereogum points to the new single by the B-52s Kate Pierson, “Mister Sister,” from her upcoming debut solo album Guitars and Microphones coming February 17th.

Guitars And Microphones was executive produced by Sia, who collaborated with Pierson on the songwriting. Tim Anderson produced the album, and the Strokes’ Nick Valensi plays on it.

Lead single “Mister Sister” is a trans anthem that updates Pierson’s signature sound with a modern sheen; given that so much current music hearkens back to the B-52s’ ’80s heyday, it’s interesting to see her style boomerang around like this.

Fred Armisen appears in the video, which was directed by Monica Coleman.

The track is available now on iTunes.
