Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs unite for 'Atomic Number' -- the result of an offhand email

Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs, "Atomic Number" (Anti- Records). With more than 30 studio albums among them, Neko Case, Laura Veirs and k.d. lang understand how to build a song, be it a torch-and-twang ballad by lang, a Case-built Brill Building bruiser or a Veirs-ian folk-pop shape-shifter.

Now the artists have united for a project simply titled "case/lang/veirs," in which the musicians play songs they wrote together. This week, they released the first of them. It's called "Atomic Number," and if the song's any sort of portent, fans are right to mark the June 17 release date on their calendars.
