Interview: Neko Case + Album PreviewMonday 26th August, 2013 12:56PM
Neko Case has said that the process of writing her new album turned four years into ten, but gave her back twelve – an apt way of describing how grief, when confronted and embraced, can give you back more than it takes. Case chatted to us recently about her new album - The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You - describing it as a record of her journey through the loss of loved ones. Although she acknowledges the subject matter doesn’t sound overly inviting, she thinks a bit of self-deprecation and her fighting spirit saved the record from sounding like a pity party. Her thoughts on loss and loneliness are compelling - there’s no bullshit and no spin - just an honest reflection on a very human experience.
