Pharrell Williams, Bono, Laurie Anderson, Michael Stipe, The National and Jarvis Cocker are among the artists who appear on a new 37 track tribute album to a dead cat.

Although the album is new, the cat in question, Souris, has been dead since 2014. The release of the compilation completes a project by French artist Sophie Calle – the cat’s former owner – which started with her pretending to be pregnant with the late feline last year.

An exploration of death and grief, the project comes together in a new exhibition which opened at the Perrotin gallery in Paris last week, and which is set to run until 22 Dec. The album, titled ‘Souris Calle’, forms the heart of the exhibition, and features a variety of tracks paying tribute to the cat across numerous genres.

The album is available to buy on vinyl as a three LP set or you can listen to it on Spotify here. Against all the odds, it’s actually really good.
