Last night, alt-country crooner and New Pornographers’ sometimes-frontwoman Neko Case tweeted “HEY, LOOK!!! IT’S FINALLY DONE!!” which included a link to a very short 90-second album teaser for her sixth studio album of an incredibly long name, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You (which, we have to say, sounds like something Fiona Apple would do). The upcoming album will be Neko Case’s first LP in four years since 2009’s CMJ chart-topping Middle Cyclone, but so far details like when it will be released or its track list remain under wraps.
In the Xan Aranda-directed trailer, we hear Case repeating “Where did I leave that fire?”—which Case herself confirmed as a song title on the upcoming album in an interview with NPR. While not much else is known about what’s in store for The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You, we know Neko Case has festival dates in the near future. Perhaps she’ll debut some new songs on the road.
Watch the album trailer and check out her tour dates below.
