NEKO CASE: FOX CONFESSOR BRINGS THE BLOGS

“SUPER-CHANTEUSE” REVEALS PLANS FOR PODCAST IN INTERVIEW WITH PITCHFORK

FREE MP3 FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM SETS BLOGGERS ABUZZ

Since its release was first announced in November, 2005, Neko Case’s forthcoming album - ‘Fox Confessor Brings The Flood” (March 7/Anti- Records) - has been a source of spirited discussion online.

• Earlier today, Pitchfork Media posted an exclusive interview in which Neko revealed her plans for a podcast. “I’ve wanted to have a radio show forever,” says Case, “[with a podcast] you can play ‘Gold Digger' by Kanye West next to Bessie Griffin and the Gospel Pearls next to some Disney kids' record, along with Bulgarian folk singing. You can have it all in one show...I'm very excited about it." Read the full interview here:

• Last week, when Anti- Records posted a free mp3 of “Star Witness” - a haunting, hyper-real ballad that plays like a lifetime flashing before your ears - the Neko chatter kicked into high gear. You can hear the song for yourself here:
