New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Ahead of the June 1st release of 'Hell-On' (Anti-) -- her "biggest, brightest sounding album ever" (Billboard) -- Neko Case has offered a third and final preview, "Curse Of The I-5 Corridor." Contrasting the defiant euphoria of last month's "Bad Luck," the new Mark Lanegan duet is a pensive epic that Pitchfork has called "winding and mysterious...a wistful waltz about what could have been."

Listen and share "Curse Of The I-5 Corridor".
Neko Case has also announced two amazing underplays in New York City next week. On May 22nd at the Gramercy Theatre, she will appear on HQ Trivia Host Scott Rogowsky's live comedy talk show, 'Running Late with Scott Rogowsky,' alongside Paul Rudd and David Cross. On May 23rd, Case will debut 'Hell-On' from Littlefield for NPR Music's First Listen Live at an engagement that sold out in hours. Later this month, she kicks off a massive international tour behind the album -- find all 50+ dates here.

Her first solo LP in five years, the self-produced 'Hell-On' is twelve songs of fearless storytelling confronting life-altering conflict with wit, charm, and unflinching introspection.

Head to Pitchfork for an in-depth conversation on how the "happy ending" of a burnt-down home and the inspiration of listening to empowered young women have helped instill the album with "an earned sense of wisdom":

And explore some of the creative processes behind the record at Billboard:

Watch Case critique Beach House, Leon Bridges, and others on HBO as part of her May residency as VICE News Tonight's Music Critic:

Early Praise for 'Hell-On'
"Case has made a record that beautifully captures her many styles, from unsettling folktales about nature's wrath, to pop-rock choruses that come around the bend with just a hint of country swagger, to some of the most gorgeously braided vocal harmonies in indie rock right now." - Pitchfork

"[Case] is in the middle of a remarkably prolific period...'Hell-On' is her biggest, brightest-sounding album ever, full of pop melodies sung with a new verve." - Billboard

"An indie rock gem...injected with a twinge of sorrow, but also a somewhat playful existential shrug" - Rolling Stone, on "Bad Luck"

"Unpinnably suited to any sound but [Case's] own" - NPR Music, on "Hell-On"
"One of the Best Songs of 2018 (So Far) - Cosmopolitan, on "Bad Luck"
