Cat Power

Hurrah! Cat Power aka Chan Marshall has a new album out reasonably soon! It’s to be titled ‘Sun’, and is slated for UK release via Matador on 10 Sep. And how can we be even vaguely sure of all this? Why, because Marshall tweeted a mini statement to that effect at the weekend.

“I HAVE FINISHED MY RECORD”, she wrote shoutily. “IT IS CALLED ‘SUN'”. Quizzed further by a fan, she wrote: “OUT 11 SEP BUT WILL GIFT ANOTHER SONG”.

That last part I take to mean that she’ll precede said LP with a single, perhaps a free download. So here’s to the tentative prospect of costless new Cat Power music. Hurrah again!
