    The Worse Things Get was 2013--so I guess this would be right on time! Four years have gone by pretty quickly since she's been so prolific with side projects. I have to admit--the last New Pornographers album I really paid attention to was Challengers, and their work is often so different from her solo stuff. The Case songs on case/lang/veirs could have totally fit on her solo albums, though--and that was one short year ago.

    I have never heard The Virginian, but she has one hell of a catalog of solo albums. Her quality control is VERY high.

    I can NOT believe that The Worse Things Get was four years ago. What?! I'm just hoping that she does something with another one of my faves, John Grant, on the new album. They did a little interview with one another on a radio show awhile back and said they wanted to work together. It'd be phenomenal.

    Oh man! I think I can do 3 of the shows! Guess it means an album is coming November/December?

    ETA: I guess it could also be a short tour before a release? I’d imagine though that it has to be nearly completed since Matt mentioned recording with her in May.

    She was recording with Matt Chamberlain again today. I wonder if they’ve ever talked about Tori?

    Omg. This must mean an album by end of the year? Pleeeeassee. She has been VERY political on Twitter. I’d love to hear her take on this mess.

    !!!!

    Someone said on Twitter that their hope for 2018 was a new Neko solo album. Her response? “Done.” EEeek!

    Since there hasn’t been a press release but a tour is revving up, anyone think she’ll just drop it out of the blue very soon? I CAN NOT wait!

    That's fantastic news!

    I love Neko on Twitter!
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Neko’s Twitter is an interesting beast. She’s one of the few people I follow but my timeline is consistently full.

    I've almost unfollowed her several times just because it's all SO MUCH, even though I agree with almost everything she posts/shares. She's very different on Twitter than I would have imagined from her musical persona.

    Can't wait for a new album though! I wasn't super nuts about the last album, but Blacklisted, Fox Confessor, and Middle Cyclone are a perfect trio.

    I loved The Harder Things Get at the time, but I never go back to it and lyrically it was much weaker than its predecessors. Which isn’t totally a knock; the trio before it are basically flawless. Furnace Room Lullaby is hella underrated, too.

    That’s the perfect way to describe it. I actually get insecure reading her Twitter account. I’m like “how can one person constantly be exposed/know about/post all of this weird and interesting stuff when I can barely think of anything to say?” She’s like an encyclopedia of interesting shit. And it’s SO all over the place. You’ll see a tweet about some obscure artist, a rare bird, a fan shoutout, a political tweet and then one ( like the other day), saying “back off, Bitch...” I learned after reading that exchange that I’d never want to piss Neko off because she let that person HAVE IT. Lol.

    Back to the album, I’m dying to hear what Matt Chamberlain brings to the table. I just have a feeling that his drumming and Neko’s songs will be a perfect combo.

    Same. The Worse Things Get… has some of my favorite lyrics of hers:

    I'm gonna go where my urge leads no more
    Swallowed, waist-deep, in the gore of the forest
    A boreal feast, let it finish me, please
    Cause I revenge myself all over myself
    There's nothing you can do to me


    I can't even say how many times those lyrics just pop in my head and stick with me for days. I'm so excited for new Neko.

    And I hope for damn sure this is something that's going to be on the new album. Neko and Mark Lanegan?
