Anti To Release New Collaboration Featuring Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs

Several years ago k.d. lang sent an email to Neko Case and Laura Veirs on a whim.

It read simply, "I think we should make a record together." Though the three musicians were barely more than acquaintances "Laura and I both responded immediately," recalls Case. "There was no question."

But now there is an answer. 'case/lang/veirs,' a new album by three phenomenal, self-driven artists will be released June 17 on Anti- with an extensive tour to follow. 'case/lang/veirs' features fourteen new, original songs written by the artists over a period of two-and-a-half years. It was recorded in Portland, OR where lang and Veirs both live, and produced by Tucker Martine with the group. Sessions commenced in lang's loft with a view of Mount St. Helens, and in Veirs' dining room and backyard studio.

Full of stunning harmonies and spellbinding rhythms, 'case/lang/veirs' draws 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. Anti- is sharing the album's lead track "Atomic Number," which features vocals by all three singers, today. Listen and share here: http://bit.ly/1LKofI9

case/lang/veirs will tour extensively this summer with dates already confirmed for the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, The Newport Folk Festival, and Brooklyn's Prospect Park among others. See below for a full itinerary. Additional dates will be announced soon, and every ticket purchased online for participating venues will include a digital copy of the case/lang/veirs album (some exclusions apply).

Reviewing her recent, career-spanning boxed set 'Truckdriver, Gladiator, Mule,' (Anti-) New York Magazine praised Neko Case's journey "from small-town fables...to baroque pop grandeur." Along the way she has earned three Grammy nominations, cracked the Top 5 of the Billboard 200, and lent her voice - which the New York Times Magazine calls "a force of nature" - to outlets ranging from the 'Hunger Games' soundtrack to HBO's 'Vinyl.'

Platinum-selling, four-time Grammy winner k.d. lang is a genre unto herself, unapologetically blurring the lines between country, punk, jazz and beyond. No stranger to collaboration, she has recorded in the past with everyone from Loretta Lynn and Kitty Wells, to Elton John and Tony Bennett who declared her "the best singer of her generation."

Laura Veirs has drawn on an abiding love of classic country and folk music and a poet's eye for detail to build a singular catalog that ranges from a childrens record to a film soundtrack and more. Her "elemental" (Pitchfork) 2013 album 'Warp and Weft' was something of a predecessor to 'case/lang/veirs' with contributions from both Case and lang.
