Neko Case Shares NSFW Video Clip for “Curse of the I-5 Corridor” Featuring Mark Lanegan

Case and Lanegan Let It All Hang Out

Neko Case released a new album, Hell-On, back in June via ANTI-. Its highlight might have been "Curse of the I-5 Corridor," a 7-minute long duet with Mark Lanegan that was our #1 Song of the Week. Now she has shared a 1-minute video clip for the song. Why it's not a full 7-minute long video is confusing, but none-the-less there's lots to see in the short time. Xan Aranda directed the clip, in which Case and Lanegan disrobe to reveal nude body suits, with animated body hair and genitals over top (the animation is by Janice Chun). The genitals then share a corndog. Watch it below (and hopefully we'll get a fuller version of the video one day). Also below are Case's upcoming tour dates.

Previously Case shared the album's title track, "Hell-On" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a trailer for the album that featured her singing "Hell-On" while snakes slithered around her head. Then she shared another song from the album, "Bad Luck," as well as a short "Bad Luck" visual featuring Case in a burning house with the crown of cigarettes she wears on the album cover. "Bad Luck" was also one of our Songs of the Week. She also announced some September North American tour dates with support from Thao (of Thao & the Get Down Stay Down). She also performed "Bad Luck" on Conan.

While recording Hell-On in Stockholm, Case got a phone call at 3 a.m. that her house had burned down after her barn had caught on fire. A friend had saved her dogs, but not much else. The lyrics to "Bad Luck" were written prior to the fire, but took on new meaning when she recorded the song the day after the fire.

It's been five years since Case's last solo album, 2013's lengthily titled The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. Although she has also taken part in two New Pornographers albums since then and in 2016 she teamed up with k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs for the collaborative album case/lang/veirs.

Case self-produced Hell-On, although six tracks were co-produced with Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John in Stockholm, Sweden. Case mixed the album in Stockholm with Lasse Martin. The album features a slew of special guests, including Beth Ditto, Mark Lanegan, k.d. Lang, AC Newman, Eric Bachmann, Kelly Hogan, Doug Gillard, Laura Veirs, and Joey Burns.
