Neko Case’s Hell-On Out Today On Anti-, Encapsulates Her Singular Vision (NPR Music)
"Some Of The Best Songs of 2018" -- The Ringer

Today, Neko Case releases 'Hell-On,' her "biggest, brightest sounding album ever" (Billboard) that "beautifully captures her many styles" (Pitchfork). These are "some of the best songs of 2018" (The Ringer), and have already garnered praise from the New York Times, NPR Music, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, Stereogum, and SPIN. Next week look for a performance on Conan, an interview with NPR's Weekend Edition, and much more.

Read an in-depth New York Times feature on the circumstances that surrounded the recording of 'Hell-On,' including a fire that destroyed her Vermont home and finding inspiration in her extensive musical family.

And listen to "Curse Of The I-5 Corridor," a "stunning new ballad" (Rolling Stone) featuring special guest Mark Lanegan. 

Her first solo LP in five years, the self-produced 'Hell-On' is twelve songs of fearless storytelling confronting life-altering conflict with wit, charm, and unflinching introspection. 'Hell-On' features performances by Beth Ditto, Mark Lanegan, k.d. Lang, AC Newman, Eric Bachmann, Kelly Hogan, Doug Gillard, Laura Veirs, Joey Burns and many more.

Neko Case is currently on tour with Ray LaMontagne, with headlining dates in the US and Europe coming in the fall. Full dates here:

Praise For Neko Case and 'Hell-On'
"Case in her musical sweet spot...she is more pointedly wrestling with her own place amid timeless thematic clashes between the masculine and the feminine, man and nature." - The New York Times

"Case has made a record that beautifully captures her many styles, from unsettling folktales about nature's wrath, to pop-rock choruses that come around the bend with just a hint of country swagger, to some of the most gorgeously braided vocal harmonies in indie rock right now." - Pitchfork

"[Case] is in the middle of a remarkably prolific period...'Hell-On' is her biggest, brightest-sounding album ever, full of pop melodies sung with a new verve." - Billboard

"'Hell-On' simply encapsulates Case's own singular vision...she remains endlessly quotable even at her most elusive, in songs that unfold like puzzles she's still solving herself." - NPR Music

"An album of soaring hooks and detailed storytelling, rich in all of its elements" - Entertainment Weekly

"Another serving of the gutting wisdom and honesty longtime fans have come to expect" - New York Magazine

"Some of the best songs of 2018...lush, noirish Americana vistas, both earthy and delightfully surreal." - The Ringer

"Lush and gorgeous...another example of what Case has done so well for so long." - Stereogum

"Another instant classic...this album already feels like one of her most ambitious." - SPIN
