TORONTO - Canadian singer-songwriter k.d. lang has sparked a new collaboration with folk artists Neko Case and Laura Veirs.

And all it took was a single sentence through email.

Lang messaged both women saying: "I think we should make a record together," according to the group's announcement.

Case and Veirs quickly agreed, and this summer the trio will embark on a North American tour to support their upcoming album.

Concerts are scheduled for Victoria in June and Winnipeg in August.

"Case/lang/veirs" includes 14 songs written by the performers over two and a half years. The album was recorded in Portand, Ore., and will be released June 17.

Production was handled by Veirs's husband Tucker Martine, who has worked on most of the singer's past albums.

Case, who has an extensive solo career, is also a member of Vancouver-based indie rock group the New Pornographers.
