New Neko

Neko Case's label has a preview MP3 from her upcoming album. This song, "Star Witness" daringly raises the stakes of her last studio solo album, Blacklisted. The noir arrangment is ever-expanding, evolving at every verse. (And I'm pretty sure there's the inimitable touch of The Band's organist, Garth Hudson, who's reported to be a guest on the album.) And Case's lyrics are equally filled with unexpected details, plot turns and tantalizing clues. The new album has a rather confusing name, Fox Confessor Brings The Flood. It comes out March 7. I'm psyched. At the very least, maybe people will shut up about The New Pornographers for a little while.
