Cat Power has just announced that her new album, Sun, will arrive on September 11th. Fans of Cat Power have been anticipatory for this long-awaited release and it appears that the wait is finally over.
Sun will be Cat Power’s first proper album since 2006’s The Greatest. Chan Marshall explained to The Quietus that the delay was caused by a long term relationship she became involved in. “I was trying to grow my personal life in a way that I never did before. So now that relationship is over and it’s come full circle … There’s a great loss personally in my life right now, but there’s also a gift in that I’m lucky I finished this album.” One significant difference on this album will be that Marshall plays all the instruments on the album herself.
Although this track hasn’t yet been confirmed for the new album, listen to Cat Power’s new song, “Kings Ride By”.
