Maybe I’ve been thinking about Mad Men too much, but these days everything seems like a clue to something bigger. And, when Neko Case began appearing on fall festival lineups, deductions drifted toward a possible new album. But, even with tonight’s windfall of evidence, nothing concrete has yet to emerge.
We do know that Neko Case premiered her new single today on The Current today at 2p.m. and it appears to have not made its way in the internet as of 9:30 p.m. PST.
Then, this evening, Neko Case’s record label, Anti-, posted a 90-second teaser for… something. Is it an album? Probably. How do we know it’s not just the music video for “Man”? Well, all reports are that the new Case single is up-beat and guitar driven, while this is spare and introspective.
Either way, at the end, we read the song’s lyrics, “The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You.” Maybe it is a simultaneous double-single release, even. But, if I were a guessing man, I’d say we have an announcement and title on our hands, and it’s a great title.
