If a new, weirdly beautiful clip posted to YouTube is any indication, Neko Case has a new album on the way. In the 1:25-long snippet, Case walks slowly, rolls around in bed, and checks out some fireworks, all soundtracked by what seems to be a brand new song. The end of the clip displays what appears to be the new album title: The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You.
Case has a number of tour dates set for this summer and fall, including a headlining slot at the world’s most prestigious music event, A.V. Fest, set for Sept. 6-7 at The Hideout, right here in beautiful Chicago. A full list of all her scheduled shows is below.
