I'm not sure where Stereogum got this info, since I'd been keeping my ear to the tracks for this for months and this is the first I've heard of it, but I suppose they have things like "reliable sources" that "know things"... whatever. Via Stereogum:
"Middle Cyclone, Neko Case's solo follow up to 2006's Fox Confessor Brings The Flood, is due on Anti- in March 2009."
Suh-weet, y'all. It's tempered by the fact that it's way off in March (I was hoping against hope for something by the end of the year), but still, any word of a new Neko Case album, finally, is good. And hopefully we'll be getting some touring and live tracks soon too!
