Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs have teamed up for a collaborative album, case/lang/veirs. It’s due out June 17 via ANTI-. The trio has shared another song from the record, “Delirium.” Listen below, followed by their tour dates.

Veirs talked about the genesis of the song in a press release: “At first we thought what can we possibly write about, we don’t even know each other, there were no themes. So k.d. and I were having trouble writing and went on a walk. We saw this firework stand and we started looking at the names of the different fireworks, and one of them was called ‘Delirium.’ We were like, ‘that’s a good song title,’ and we started building. [Neko] came in and, of course, [she] has a way of making everything great. She can even use one word to totally transform a song. We were writing things like ‘the walls are falling in,’ you know, trying to find a way of saying this person is in a delirious state. She said ‘kaleidoscoping in,’ and I was like, that’s it! One word and the chorus went from cliché to magical.”

The collaboration began several years ago when lang sent Case and Veirs an email that simply read: “I think we should make a record together.” In a press release Case says she didn’t hesitate: “Laura and I both responded immediately. There was no question.” The artists wrote 14 original new songs for the album. Tucker Martine produced the album with the trio and it was recorded in Portland, OR (hometown to both land and Veirs).
