In April, Chan Marshall announced that her new album, “ Sun”, was finally finished and that, if everything went well, it would be released on 11th September via Matador. However, in a recent interview with The Stool Pigeon, Cat Power stated the album should come out “later this year”, which could be interpreted as a delay. Or not.
In any case, the most interesting things we learnt from the interview are some revelations about the making of the album. For instance, the fact that - contrary to her previous records - she took control of this one completely, even playing all the instruments herself. “You have a huge responsibility with the things you're trying to create to do your best. There's pressure - not from critics or anything like that, but to do something that means something in your heart. And you wanna do it the way you wanna do it. ” For now, the advance track she promised hasn't been released yet.
