On the title track of her quietly anxious seventh solo record, Neko Case discredits God for all of his/her shortcomings and demands respect for the power and frailty of Mother Nature. “Nothing quite so poison as a promise,” she repeats, bitingly.

Hell-On finds Case syncing up with producer Björn Yttling (of Peter, Bjorn, and John), her old bandmates from the New Pornographers, and collaborators k.d. Lang and Laura Veirs for what is considered one of her most primal records to date. While most of the album puts the 48-year-old singer-songwriter in the backseat, Hell-On is as fiery as Case gets, while also doing what she has been so masterful at doing in the past — giving space for both catharsis and rumination.

Neko Case will perform on Monday, April 22 at the Majestic Theatre; Doors open at 7 p.m.; 4140, Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-9700; majesticdetroit.com. Tickets are $29.50-$35.
