Cat Power - Covers


  • £24.99

Cat Power returns with Covers, Chan Marshall’s third album of her celebrated reinterpretations of songs by classic and contemporary artists. 
Produced in its entirety by Marshall, Covers features re-imaginings of recordings by Nick Cave, Iggy Pop, The Replacements, Billie Holiday, Lana Del Rey and more, plus an updated rendition of the Cat Power song 'Hate' from The Greatest (2006), re-titled 'Unhate' for this album. 
The first single to be released from the album is 'Pa Pa Power,' a song by Dead Man's Bones (a duo consisting of Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields). On deciding to record 'Pa Pa Power,' Marshall says: “I started playing this solo in 2012 (originally more dissonant and trance-y), when the Occupy Wall street protests were going on. Occupy was bunkering down and saying, ‘This shit's fucking fucked up.’ And helping citizens be a voice in their local government. They got a lot of good things done, but the American media killed the movement. I felt like this song was relative to that. The American media has always penalized any sort of social progressiveness and is always the first to express conservative rhetoric against something that is beneficial to the nation. I’d open with this song on the 2013 China tour. ‘Burn the streets, burn the cars.’”  


Marshall’s work as Cat Power has defied genre and convention, her legacy rippling through the work of a wide range of contemporary musical luminaries ranging from Lana Del Rey and Angel Olsen, to Clairo and Phoebe Bridgers. Covers have long defined Chan’s work and she makes each of them her own. Her most recent record Wanderer (2018) even featured a cover of Rihanna’s “Stay” which she distilled to its most devastating lines; “they become a vessel of longing and desperation so spare and crushing that the song is, in classic Cat Power fashion, almost painfully raw"" - Pitchfork
