Neko Case's Bold, Elemental New Album 'Middle Cyclone' Set For March 3 Release

NEKO CASE'S BOLD, ELEMENTAL NEW ALBUM MIDDLE CYCLONE - HER FIRST IN THREE YEARS - SET FOR MARCH 3 RELEASE ON ANTI- RECORDS

On March 3, 2009, Anti- Records will release the eagerly awaited new Neko Case album 'Middle Cyclone.' The fifteen-track collection is Case's first release since 2006's 'Fox Confessor Brings The Flood,' the best-reviewed and best-selling album of her career.

'Middle Cyclone' was produced by Case with Darryl Neudorf and recorded in Tucson, Brooklyn, Toronto, and Vermont. It features Case backed by her core band - guitarist Paul Rigby, bassist Tom V. Ray, backing vocalist Kelly Hogan, multi-instrumentalist Jon Rauhouse, and drummer Barry Mirochnick - along with numerous guests including M. Ward, Garth Hudson, Sarah Harmer, and members of The New Pornographers, Los Lobos, Calexico, The Sadies, Visqueen, The Lilys, and Giant Sand, among others. In addition to twelve new songs written by Case, 'Middle Cyclone' includes covers of 'Never Turn Your Back on Mother Earth' by Sparks, and "Don't Forget Me" by Harry Nilsson.

In 2006, SPIN Magazine called Case "one of pop music's best" voices, and Interview Magazine hailed her album 'Fox Confessor Brings The Flood' as "one of the most original, beguiling, honest records of the year." The album also earned Case Female Artist of the Year honors from the PLUG Independent Music Awards, and a Top 10 placement in the Village Voice's annual Pazz and Jop Critics Poll of the year's best releases. 'Fox Confessor' was Case's first album to debut in the Billboard Top 100, and has sold nearly 200,000 copies in the U.S. alone.
