Neko Case Drops Third Solo Effort





Neko Case, the delightful voice of the Canadian indie whippersnappers New Pornographers, will unload her third solo album on August 20, titled Blacklisted. Rolling Stone (since when they hell do they cover good music?) reports that Blacklisted, the follow up to 2000's critically acclaimed Furnace Room Lullaby, will be released on Mint Records (which is licensed through Bloodshot). Case wrote most of the songs and played a wide variety of the instruments on Blacklisted, including regular guitars and tenor guitars, piano, saw and even drums with contributions from Joey Burns and John Convertino of Calexico and Howe Gelb of Giant Sand. Case is currently touring the US, and will stop in August for a brief tour of Canaduh with New Pornographers, only to get back on the solo tour and ride the wave through November in Arizona (which coincidentally was where Blacklisted was recorded). New Pornographers will hopefully re-enter the studio (during some sort of downtime) to complete the follow up the 2000's sleeper hit, Mass Romantic.
