Announcing case/lang/veirs

I am excited to announce my new record with k.d. lang and Neko Case! We spent a couple of years writing songs on-and-off together and recorded the album last November here in Portland with my husband Tucker Martine producing.  Fourteen songs made the cut and I’m proud of every one of them.  The album, entitled “case/lang/veirs” is a truly collaborative effort and I’m so glad I can finally unzip my lips and tell the world about it!

“case/lang/veirs” the self-titled album (available for preorder this morning) will release June 17 on ANTI- Records with an extensive tour to follow (itinerary below with more to come.) “case/lang/veirs” features fourteen original songs written by Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs over a period of two-and-a-half years. Full of stunning harmonies and spellbinding rhythms, the artists drew inspiration from alluring, mysterious subjects: a supermoon, the tumbledown story of 70s singer Judee Sill, and the “best kept secret” in Silver Lake, to name but three.  Produced by Tucker Martine with the group, their creative sessions commenced in lang’s loft with a view of Mount St. Helens, and in Veirs’ dining room and backyard studio.

Today ANTI- is sharing the album’s lead track “Atomic Number,” featuring vocals by all three singers.
