Cat Power returns with “Covers”, Chan Marshall’s third album of her celebrated reinterpretations of songs by classic and contemporary artists.

Cat Power has announced a new album of cover songs. “Covers” is out January 14th via Domino Recordings. She’s shared her version of Frank Ocean’s “Channel Orange” single “Bad Religion,” plus a cover of the Pogues’ “A Pair of Brown Eyes” from the record. Power also performed “Bad Religion” last night on The Late Late Show With James Corden. 

The album features covers of songs by Iggy Pop, Bob Seger, Dead Man’s Bones (Ryan Gosling’s band), Jackson Browne, the Replacements, Nick Cave, Billie Holiday, and more.

Cat Power’s cover of “Bad Religion” took shape when she started performing her song “In Your Face” from 2018’s Wanderer on tour, according to a press release. “That song was bringing me down,” Cat Power said. “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.”

In the years since “Wanderer”, Cat Power has worked on music for the Echo in the Canyon documentary and the Sean Penn feature Flag Day. She also covered Cassius’ “Toop Toop” last year in tribute to the late Philippe Zdar. Power said in a statement that her cover of Billie Holiday’s “I’ll Be Seeing You” is a tribute to Zdar.

Cat Power – “A Pair Of Brown Eyes”, from the forthcoming album ‘Covers,’ out 14th January 2022 on Domino Record Co.
