Neko Case drops her new solo record Hell On this month and is the latest guest on Talk The Line, our weekly podcast exploring celebrity obsessions and passions.
The album was co-produced by Björn Yttling from Peter, Bjorn and John and includes collaborations with the likes of Beth Ditto, Laure Veiers, KD Lang, Robert Forster and New Pornographers cofounder Carl Newman. The record was borne in a literal fire - Case was in the middle of recording in Stockholm when she got a 3am phone call telling her that her house back in Vermont was burning down and she'd likely lose everything.
Today’s podcast see Neko reveal her fascination for Amazons and other warrior women of history and is inspired by her love of Adrienne Mayor’s The Amazons: Lives and Legends of Warrior Women across the Ancient World.
