Neko Case leads the way on New Pornographers’ new song “This is the World of Theatre” — listen

Plus, A.C. Newman shares a playlist of fave tracks including Run the Jewels, Beck, and Angel Olsen


Whiteout Conditions is the upcoming record from The New Pornographers, expected to hit streets on April 7th. The Canadian outfit’s seventh full-length overall follows 20140’s Brill Bruisers and is being teased today with a new track called “This is the World of Theatre”.

Whereas lead single “High Ticket Attractions” was an A.C. Newman-led affair speckled with synths, this latest LP preview sees Neko Case in the driver’s seat. She’s got a guitar in hand and a pocketful of lovely melodies.

Along with the new offering, Newman has curated a playlist of songs he’s been spinning lately. The mix includes Run the Jewels, PJ Harvey, Angel Olsen, Spoon, White Reaper, Beck, and Noname, and can be heard below.
