Cat Power Announces Covers EP

Cat Power Announces Covers EP
If you love Cat Power’s cover songs, which seem to comprise a great deal of Chan Marshall’s recorded output lately, it’s going to be a merry Christmas. Matador Records has announced the release of Dark End of The Street, a new Cat Power covers EP, due on December 9.

Available as a digital download, or on some sweet, sweet ten-inch double vinyl, the record features covers of artists such as the Pogues, CCR and Otis Redding — four previously unreleased Cat Power versions and two that you’ve probably heard. According to Marshall, the songs are left over from the Jukebox recording sessions. Unfortunately, her recent cover of David Bowie’s "Space Oddity,” featured in a Lincoln car ad, didn't make the cut.

Dark End Of The Street tracklisting:

1. "Auld Triangle” (The Pogues)
2. "Dark End Of The Street” (James Carr, Aretha Franklin)
3. "Who Knows Where The Time Goes” (Sandy Denny/Fairport Convention)
4. "Fortunate Son” (Creedence Clearwater Revivial)
5. "I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)” (Otis Redding)
6. "It Ain’t Fair” (Aretha Franklin)
