Cat Power Tour Dates / New Record

Cat Power and Dirty Delta Blues have recorded a new Lp for Matador records , "Covers two" , should be released in September ! We recorded the first half @ The Hit Factory Miami (where; James Brown , Derek & The Dominoes , John Lee Hooker , Fleetwood Mac , Aretha Franklin , The Rolling Stones and Dylan recorded)
, then went on our european outing . The Second half was recorded in Brooklyn @ the Rare Book Room with Nicolas Vernhes .
We covered a range of things from Kitty Wells to Nick Cave , so the record sounds very diverse . The sound also shows Chan going back to her rawer side . So "covers two" , (even though recorded by "the greatest" engineer Stuart Sikes) sounds nowhere near as slick and polished as "the Greatest" . The Cat Power fans seem to generally dig the new sound , which owes more to the 60's Bob Dylan "Band" sound or even the Velvet Underground , as opposed to the smooth soul grooves of "The Memphis Rhythym Band" . Some of the fans do however miss the solo stuff , of which this record and tour provides . Chan's is on a road that is much more solid and secure , and with "Dirty Delta Blues" , it seems like the compromise , (between dark and light) is a good one . Rx
