Neko Case covered Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast" for the Wits public radio show in St. Paul, Minn., and was eye-, ear- and all other orifice-opening.

Feist and Mastodon got together to make a Feistodon split 7" for Record Store Day last year, so I ask: Is the ball not in your court now, Bruce Dickinson?

Neko Case helped out on the New Pornographers' last, 2010 album "Together" and guested on New Pornos frontman A.C. Newman's 2012 album "Shut Down the Streets." She and is working on her sixth full-length solo album in 2013; her last was 2009's "Middle Cyclone."
