Cat Power has announced details of a new covers album, cunningly titled ‘Covers’.
Set to be released on 14th January 2022 via Domino, it comes following a performance of Frank Ocean’s ‘Bad Religion’ last night on The Late Late Show with James Corden. You can check that out, and hear Chan Marshall’s “personal favourite”, her take on The Pogues’ ‘A Pair Of Brown Eyes’, below.
“That song was bringing me down,” Chan explains, talking about her version of the Frank Ocean track. “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.”
‘Covers’ will complete a “trilogy of sorts”, following-up on previous cover collections ‘Jukebox’ (2008) and ‘The Covers Record’ (2000).
