on April 10, 2018, 11:23am

On June 1st, Neko Case will issue her new album, Hell-On. It’s her first solo LP in five years and follows 2013’s The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. Already fans of The New Pornographers member have heard the title track. Today, they’ve been treated to a second preview, and one that perhaps offers more insight into the album’s blazing name.

Case penned “Bad Luck” in a Stockholm studio shortly after finding out a fire back at home had ravaged her house, including most of her belongings. “If somebody burned your house down on purpose, you’d feel so violated,” she commented in a press statement. “But when nature burns your house down, you can’t take it personally.”

Take a listen to the surprisingly upbeat, ’60s-leaning cut below.

Along with the new song, Case has announced a series of European shows to follow her sprawling, 30-date North American tour. Consult her updated itinerary.
