This just in: case/lang/veirs (Neko Case, k.d.lang, and Laura Veirs) have been added to the Sunday night lineup at the BB&T Pavilion for this year’s XPoNential Music Festival. This completes the Sunday night lineup that includes Old Crow Medicine Show and Brandi Carlile.
The collaboration between singer-songwriters Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs began several years ago, when, according to their biography:
on a whim, k.d. lang sent an email to Neko Case and Laura Veirs that said, “I think we should make a record together.” The three musicians were very different and barely more than acquaintances–but they liked and admired each other, and it instantly felt right. “She lit the flare,” says Case. “She shot it into the air and we said, ‘Let’s do this.’ Laura and I both responded immediately. There was no question.”
The trio worked over two and a half years in Portland, Oregon, where lang and Veirs both live, and produced the album with Tucker Martine, at his Portland studio in November 2015. The resulting collaboration – case/lang/veirs – is coming out on June 17th.
Tickets are on sale now here for the 2016 XPoNential Music Festival, July 22-24th at the Camden Waterfront.
Below, listen to the “Atomic Number,” a gorgeous new song that wondrously features their voices and songwriting together.
