Neko Case announces new record due out Sept. 3, just three days before she plays A.V. Fest

Neko Case has officially announced her first new album in four years. The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You is due out Sept. 3—just three days before Case performs at A.V. Fest—and is billed as the singer’s “most precise, urgent record to date.” That shift is evident in the first single off the record, “Man,” which is streaming below and comes accompanied by a totally bitchin’ press photo of Case all gussied up in a mustache and cowboy duds. “Man” features guest guitar work from M. Ward, and a number of other artists show up on The Worse Things Get, including members of the New Pornographers, My Morning Jacket, Calexico, and Los Lobos.

In addition to her A.V. Fest appearance (tickets on sale now!), Case also has a number of other North American dates on the docket. A full schedule is below.
