Cat Power Reveals Release Date of New Album ‘Sun’
Cat Power knows it's been a while since she's recorded original music, and she's more than ready to make up for that. The singer has announced the release date of a new album titled 'Sun.'
Power, who was last heard from on 2008's covers collection, 'Jukebox,' tells the Stool Pigeon (quote via Quietus), "I entered a long relationship which I really wanted to be successful. You know that thing we're all raised to want: a beautiful life with children -- that family thing that is tangible? I was trying to grow my personal life in a way that I never did before. So now that relationship is over and it's come full circle … There's a great loss personally in my life right now, but there's also a gift in that I'm lucky I finished this album."
She threw herself fully into the new record, playing all of the instruments on the release. She explains, "I wanted to prove that I could depend on myself, musically, because I hadn't been playing guitar or piano in like five years and … it was just this feeling that you're not growing if you're not doing something creative."
