Cat Power returns with Covers, Chan Marshalls third album of her celebrated reinterpretations of songs by classic and contemporary artists.

On Covers, Marshall reaches back to songs that have affected her from childhood to the present, connecting each with a deeply personal memory. She recalls her grandmothers love for Billie Holidays Ill Be Seeing You and finding a box of cassettes as a teenager that led her to discovering Kitty Wells It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels. She remembers getting chills hearing Iggy Pops Endless Sea in the 1986 Michael Hutchence film Dogs in Space and being a broke artist in her twenties in New York City spending her last dollar to play the Replacements Here Comes a Regular on the jukebox at Monas. She recorded the Pogues Pair of Brown Eyes, which she calls one of her favorite songs of all time, after it reminded her of one friend who passed from cancer and turned to Bob Segers Against the Wind to help her heal from the loss of another.

Alongside covers of rock-and-roll icons from Nico to Nick Cave, Marshall brings her inimitable vocal power and elegant arrangements to songs by contemporary artists, capturing the defiance of Dead Mans Bones Pa Pa Power and the dreaminess of Lana Del Reys A White Mustang. And the album opens with a dazzling cover of Frank Oceans Bad Religion, of which she says, I believe in whatever God is called But I think that the wretched men that have come in history to implement horror on humanity in the name of these religions is something that should be looked at universally.

Finally, Covers finds Marshall, an artist of constant evolution, reworking Hate, a song from her 2006 LP The Greatest on which she sang I hate myself and I want to die. Marshall says she has always felt antsy about the track and reimagined it as Unhate, a new version that looks back on the raw devastation of the original track in the rearview. We all have bad days, she says. We all have shit, trauma, something. There are times when you feel like that. But I needed to make it right.

Marshall self-produced all of Covers; it was recorded in Los Angeles at Mant Studios with Rob Schnapf, who mixed and engineered.
