Anti is pleased to release Neko Case’s first solo album in over four years, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You. The new 12-song set represents Neko’s most precise, urgent record to date, marked by a melodic immediacy, a loving embrace of the big rock gesture, and a lyrical frankness typified by first single “Man,” in which she warns “I’m a man...you’ll deal with me directly.”

"My brain wilderness is more dense and dangerous than I thought,” says Case. “It was an embarrassing and hilarious march, but I now feel like a more streamlined being. It's a good feeling. Four years of my life took ten years hostage, then gave me back twelve."

The album was executive-produced by Case and recorded at Wavelab in Tuscon, as well as Portland, Los Angeles and with Phil Palazzolo in Brooklyn. Tucker Martine, Case and Darryl Neudorf mixed the album, with backing by guitarist Paul Rigby, bassist Tom V. Ray, vocalist Kelly Hogan and multi-instrumentalist Jon Rauhouse.

Other guests on the album include M. Ward, Steve Turner of Mudhoney, Howe Gelb, and members of The New Pornographers, My Morning Jacket, Calexico, Los Lobos and Visqueen. In addition to eleven new songs written by Case, The Worse Things Get also features a cover of Nico's “Afraid."

Case’s 2009 album Middle Cyclone was the best-reviewed and fastest-selling of her career to date. It debuted at #3 on Billboard Top 200 and earned two Grammy nominations. NPR hailed Case as “one of the most memorable and seductive voices in music” while The New York Times Magazine said “her voice is a force of nature” and Rolling Stone called her “indie’s greatest singer.”

Neko has remained in the public eye with high profile appearances on soundtracks, notably on The Hunger Games, with Nick Cave on True Blood, and on the new Stephen King musical project Ghost Brothers of Darkland County. Neko’s gorgeous voice has also led to numerous appearances alongside Andrew Bird, The Dodos, Jakob Dylan, and Peter Wolf, as well as her continued association with the New Pornographers.

This limited edition deluxe double vinyl LP pressing (10,000 worldwide) of Neko Case's The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You features 3 bonus tracks, D-Side etching, tattoo sheet and bonus CD of the full album, all housed in a gatefold sleeve with alternative artwork.
