Album cover artwork for Cat PowerOn her third covers record Chan Marshall, AKA Cat Power, once again puts her unmistakeable stamp on a collection of songs that hold great personal meaning.

From conjuring memories as a struggling artist with The Replacements’ Here Comes a Regular, to honouring a late friend with The Pogues’ A Pair of Brown Eyes, Marshall pays tribute to the songs that have soundtracked her life.

The most unforgettable moment comes with Nico’s classic These Days, as Marshall delivers a reinterpretation that might just rival her well-known cover of Sea of Love. Significantly, the record also features a new version of Marshall’s own song Hate which has been transformed into Unhate, flipping the narrative to celebrate her life rather than will it away.

Covers by Cat Power is out Jan 14 via Domino.
