Neko's new album features appearances by Beth Ditto, Mark Lanegan, k.d. Lang, Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers, Archers of Loaf), Doug Gillard (Guided by Voices, Nada Surf), Laura Veirs, Joey Burns (Calexico), as well as New Pornographers bandmate AC Newman, and frequent collaborator Kelly Hogan.
k.d. lang has been celebrating the 25th anniversary of her Grammy-winning album Ingenue by playing it in full on tour. She's just announced North American dates for 2018 which start February 26 in Seattle, and the tour wraps up at NYC's Beacon Theatre on March 26.
Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs' supergroup shared a new song today off their upcoming album case/lang/veirs, which'll be out on June 17 via ANTI-. This one is called "Honey and Smoke" and it's possibly the best one they've released so far, with a '60s girl group vibe to k.d. lang's croon, making it as sweet (and smoky) as its title.
