Produced by Neko Case, “Hell-On” is simultaneously her most accessible and most challenging album, in a rich and varied career that’s offered plenty of both. “Hell-On” is rife with withering self-critique, muted reflection, anthemic affirmation and Neko’s unique poetic sensibility. Neko enlisted Bjorn Yttling of (Peter Bjorn & John) to co-produce six tracks with her in Stockholm, Sweden where she mixed the 12-track album with Lasse Mårtén.
“Hell-On” features performances by Beth Ditto, Mark Lanegan, k.d. Lang, AC Newman, Eric Bachmann, Kelly Hogan, Doug Gillard, Laura Veirs, Joey Burns and many more.
This week’s download comes from Neko Case and her latest album “Hell-On.” You have seven days to download her tune, “Last Lion of Albion.” The song was featured on an episode of “Song Exploder” with guest host Thao Nguyen.
