Cat Power Goes Back Under ‘Covers’
Cat Power has settled on a Jan. 22 release date for “Covers II,” her second Matador album of material popularized by other artists. The track list for the project has yet to be confirmed, but it will feature Chan Marshall backed by her Dirty Delta Blues band.
“Covers II” follows 2000’s “The Covers Album,” which featured her interpretations of songs by the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Moby Grape and the Velvet Underground.
The new album will be the follow-up to last year’s “The Greatest,” which won the 2007 Shortlist prize for creative achievement.
Cat Power will hit the road with the Dirty Delta Blues Band beginning Oct. 14 in Norfolk, Va., and has shows on tap through Nov. 4 at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas.
She can also be heard covering Dylan’s “Stuck Inside of Mobile With Memphis Blues Again” on the soundtrack to “I’m Not There,” due Oct. 30 via Columbia.
