This new North American trek comes after 2018 dates across Europe and the US, and will be followed by a short stint in Australia and New Zealand. Kimya Dawson and Margaret Glaspy will be joining Case on select evenings.

As for the new “Last Lion of Albion” clip, it features vivid, handmade creations from artist Laura Plansker. Case praised her work in a press statement:

I’m very honored and excited to debut this video for “Last Lion of Albion” by one of my very favorite artists, Laura Plansker,“ Case explained. “I’ve loved her work forever; she‘s so skilled at using handmade figures and props to create surreal worlds. Her work perfectly balances humor and darkness in a way that breaks my heart. She has a way of making something so artificial so very alive. The turning of the lion’s head to look at the sky, or its own reflection makes me cry my eyes out. There is so much straight ahead compassion in Laura’s work, there’s no need to manipulate emotion of the viewer, it is the perfect balance. I’m so happy to share it here with you!

Below, check out Case’s full tour itinerary, followed by the music video.
