Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs have released their first song, titled “Honey and Smoke,” in support of their upcoming album, case/lang/veirs. Their self-titled 14-track album is set to be released on June 17th.
As Consequence of Sound write, “the track is shrouded in a lounge-like haze, while its melodies carry a sweet ’60s sway.” Listen to the track below.
Neko Case is an indie rock artist recognized for both her solo career as a top-tier songwriter and her participation in the Canadian group The New Pornographers.
Kathryn Dawn Lang, known by her stage name k.d. lang, is a Grammy-winning Canadian singer-songwriter who explores the depth and intersection of country, folk, and pop.
Portland-based Laura Veirs embodies the evolution of the song craft with her genre-fusing artistry and lyricism.
Their upcoming album was reportedly inspired by “a supermoon, the tumbledown story of 70s singer Judee Sill, and the ‘best kept secret’ in Silver Lake.” It was recorded over two years by producer Tucker Martine in Portland, Oregon.
The trio is set to go on tour this June. The two-month leg will take them from San Diego to Winnipeg. The tour includes a few festival performances including an appearance at Newport Folk Festival and XPoNential Music Festival.
