Neko Case, k.d. Lang and Laura Veirs share 'Best Kept Secret' track
Having previously announced their eponymous debut album, Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs - known collectively as case/lang/veirs - have shared another, summer tinged, single 'Best Kept Secret'.
With soaring strings and stunning harmonies, 'Best Kept Secret' is an excellent example of just how these three enormous talents collaborate so well. Of the track, k.d. lang said: “It was done in one or two takes, and it went down super-fast. We were all dancing. It just had so much joy. Then Neko came up with that ba-da-da ba-da-da ba-da-da ba-da-da. It just kind of unfolded in this really joyful, celebratory way."
Neko Case has earned three Grammy nominations, cracked the Top 5 of the Billboard 200, and lent her voice to a range of projects, from The Hunger Games OST to HBO's Vinyl.
Platinum-selling, four-time Grammy winner k.d. lang is a genre unto herself, unapologetically blurring the lines between country, punk, jazz and beyond. No stranger to collaboration, she has recorded in the past with everyone from Loretta Lynn and Kitty Wells, to Elton John and Tony Bennett who declared her "the best singer of her generation."
Laura Veirs has drawn on an abiding love of classic country and folk music and a poet's eye for detail to build a singular catalog that ranges from a children's record to a film soundtrack and more. Her 2013 album Warp and Weft was something of a predecessor to case/lang/veirs, featuring contributions from both Case and lang.
