Cat Power will drop a new covers LP – aptly titled Covers – on Jan. 14, 2022.
Artists highlighted in the collection include Lana Del Rey, The Pogues, Bob Seger, Billie Holiday, Jackson Browne and more.
Power’s recently released version of Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange cut “Bad Religion” was birthed out of performing her own tune “In Your Face.”
“That song was bringing me down,” Cat Power explained of “In Your Face.” “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.”
