Neko Case to Release Middle Cyclone Next March with A Little Help From Her Freunde (New Pornographers, Calexico, Giant Sand, M. Ward)

What do you have planned for next March? Are you going to be there as the U.S. begins its first round of negotiations with the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership countries on a possible free trade agreement? Anticipating the second World Baseball Classic? Can't wait until NASA's Kepler Mission is launched? Perhaps the 2009 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Dubai or the 60th FIA Formula One World Championship in Melbourne?

Nope, none of the above. You're beyond politics and sports, because you're one of the lucky few who are so attuned to your feelings that ART is what moves you. Well, art connoisseur, expert of taste, master of your feelings, you're in luck: Neko Case is set to release her first album since 2006's Fox Confessor Brings The Flood. Titled Middle Cyclone, the 15-track album features Case's core band (guitarist Paul Rigby, bassist Tom V. Ray, backing vocalist Kelly Hogan, multi-instrumentalist Jon Rauhouse, drummer Barry Mirochnick) with guests aplenty, including members from The New Pornographers, Los Lobos, Calexico, Giant Sand, The Sadies, and others, like M. Ward and shit.

Middle Cyclone is set for release March 3 on ANTI- Records. Tracklist:
