Cat Power announces new covers LP, shares renditions of Frank Oean & The Pogues

Cat Power has long had a special way of making other people's songs her own, and she's released two albums worth of covers already, 2000's The Covers Record and 2008's Jukebox. Now she has a third on the way, titled, simply, Covers, and due out January 14 via Domino. She announced the album with an appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden on Wednesday night (10/6), where she performed a rendition of Frank Ocean's channel ORANGE track "Bad Religion" with her band. The cover had its origins in performing one of her own songs, "In Your Face" off 2018's Wanderer, on tour. "That song was bringing me down," she says. "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."

In addition to "Bad Religion," Cat Power has shared a second song from the album, her version of The Pogues' "A Pair of Brown Eyes" that she calls her "personal favorite." Hear that and "Bad Religion," and watch the Corden performance, below.
