Singer-songwriter and occasional member of The New Pornographers, Neko Case, is back with her first solo project in 5 years, a new album called Hell-On. The album art is intense, featuring Case wearing a top made of brown hair, a hat sculpted out of cigarettes, the words “Hell-On” melting off of her shoulder, and a small, smokey fire bursting out from under her top. The first single, “Hell-On” features imaginative lyrics, whimsical production, and her unique voice.

This album is her first since 2013’s The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You, and her first completely self produced album, with features contributions from Beth Ditto and Nada Surf. The album is out on June 1st via ANTI-, which you can preorder here. Neko Case is on tour this summer with Ray LaMontagne, which will bring her to the Festival Pier on June 22. More info on the tour can be found here.
