The members of The New Pornographers are a busy bunch, yet the group hasn’t put out an album together since 2010’s, uh, Together. Since then, of course, Dan Bejar’s Destroyer released Kaputt in 2011, and Kathryn Calder put out Bright And Vivid that year as well. A.C. Newman’s Shut Down the Streets came out last year, and Neko Case has a new album, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You, due this September.
But in a recent interview with Billboard, Case revealed that the New Pornos crew is back together again and recording new material. She said she's listened to a few of the songs that will be on the collective's next Matador-released album, and she definitely approves. Case also went on to divulge that most of the vocals for the as-yet-untitled sixth LP will be done by the end of July, but she's unsure of the album’s exact release date.
