Cat Power: ‘To this day I sleep with my bedroom door locked’

After breakups, breakdowns, stalkers and worse, Chan Marshall has rewritten her bleakest lyrics and recorded an album of highly personal covers. ‘We all need sweetness,’ she saysChan Marshall is sitting cross-legged on a bed, crying. It’s a sniffly, unselfconscious kind of crying, tears smudging sooty eyeshadow. Thirty years into her often wayward career as the US singer-songwriter Cat Power, she is crying because in a few weeks’ time she is 50 and she can’t believe she made it, that life turned...

The Covers Record Turns 20

I couldn't be hearing what I thought I was hearing. It just couldn't be right. Chan Marshall was onstage singing a Rolling Stones song, but it wasn't a Rolling Stones song. Marshall, shaggy and luminous and visibly uncomfortable with the prospect of a room full of people looking at her, had just sung the opening … More »

Cat Power – “What The World Needs Now” (Jackie DeShannon Cover)

Chan Marshall has been recording covers for many, many years.
