Cat Power has unveiled plans for new album 'Covers'.
Chan Marshall is an exquisite songwriter, an artist who seems to dive deeper than most into the inner recesses of her emotions and experiences.
Yet she's also a striking interpreter of other artist's work - notably on her 2000 album 'The Covers Record' and 2008's 'Jukebox'.
'Covers' is out on January 14th via Domino, and it completes this ad hoc trilogy, with source material crafted by Billie Holiday, Nick Cave, and The Replacements, amongst others.
Cat Power launched the project with a live performance of 'Bad Religion', Frank Ocean's gorgeous modern soul epic.
“That song was bringing me down,” she admits. “So I started pulling out lyrics from ‘Bad Religion’ and singing those instead of getting super depressed. Performing covers is a very enjoyable way to do something that feels natural to me when it comes to making music.”
Check out her performance below.
Alongside this, Cat Power has offered up a deeply affecting take on The Pogues' classic 'A Pair Of Brown Eyes' - tune in now.
