“Encyclopedia Of Classic Takedowns” F. Neko Case

    Vancouver singer/songwriter A.C. Newman returns today with a new track from his upcoming solo album Shut Down The Streets. On “Encyclopedia of Classic Takedowns,” Newman teams up once again with his fellow New Pornographer Neko Case. The result is a characteristically catchy and folky affair.

    Newman’s next solo album is due out Oct. 9 via Matador, and he’s announced plans for a North American tour to get the hype going. From Oct. 21 to Nov. 14, Newman will be playing shows around the U.S. and Canada. Listen to “Encyclopedia of Classic Takedowns” and look over the track list and tour schedule below.
