  1. ANTONIO DEPIETRO Says:

    I\\\’m very psyched for the record but…THAT\\\’S NOT THE REAL COVER IS IT?

  2. paul Says:

    Why wouldn’t it be? What’s wrong with that cover?

  3. sam roberts Says:

    i was thinking the same thing about the cover! its just cheesy, i mean what the fuck is up with the fake mole on chans face? i dunno, i’m just not feeing it

  4. Jake Says:

    I’m surprised nobody could convince her to record a full version of that Cat Stevens song from her diamond ad. Or will that be included on the deluxe edition?

  5. Jim Dubh Says:

    You guys are focusing on the wrong type of cover! Its the tunes that I am looking forward to!

  6. Jack Says:

    I think the cover is deliciously Warholian. I’m also excited about hearing her version of “I Lost Someone”, which is an obscure classic by JB.

  7. eastside Says:

    why is amy winehouse on the cover of the upcoming cat power covers album?

  8. Newms Says:

    That cover’s hot! What’s wrong with you people? Although I can’t explain the Winehousian mole.

  9. eric o Says:

    stuart sikes rules!

  10. Savvy1007 Says:

    Looking forward, especially the 2 disc version.
    and lighten up folks, Chan’s just having some cover fun!!!

  11. david lawson Says:

    the cover is perfect, the songs are perfect and everything chan produces is the greatest.

  12. jimmy mcgriffin Says:

    a horrible cover, even worse than the greatest. trendy, backwards looking, 60s and 80s “inspired”/rip off. now that chan’s so famous, and after the crap of “the greatest”, strong feeling like this one’s going to be downloaded.

  13. i.g Says:

    great tracks. does anyone know about the cat stevens cover? seems like that should have been included.

  14. Peking Saint Says:

    speaking of which..
    do you think it’s going to be a Greatest-esque sound
    or a more traditional Marshallian vibe this time around?
    *crossing fingers for the latter*

  15. genius Says:

    the cover is excellent. what are you on about? great work Matador. I work in the industry and everyone I know loves it.

  16. django Says:

    …and thats why the industry is crumbling.

  17. Lee Dale Says:

    I’m betting that’s a Sedgwickian mole to go with the Warholian cover.

    Hot!

  18. Ron Says:

    I don’t really have a problem with the cover, other than it looks like she’s butt-humping herself…and there should be a couple more copies of her butt-humping herself. Three is the MINIMUM.

  19. mang Says:

    why do people feel the need to dis artists who get recognition for being great. Sure, it was cool when only you knew who Cat Power was, but that doesnt make her more recent efforts worse than her older stuff. “Oh i liked her before she sold out” Sold out? The fact that you can support yourself with your music shouldn’t be a hinderance to your career. Tell me that “the greatest” isn’t as good, musically, as anything she’s ever done. There is no place in music, or anywhere else for that matter, for elitism. Good music is good music, period.

  20. Jackpot Says:

    The cover is fantastic. And what’s with the negativity about The Greatest, Jimmy McGriffin? That album is outstanding.

  21. Cal Says:

    I agree with Lee Dale. Amongst seeing the album cover, my first thought was “Edie Sedgwick,” which makes sense with the “Warholian” art. I tried looking at Edie images on Google to see if it’s a replica of an iconic Edie photo. Couldn’t find anything. Regardless, she looks great, and I like the throwback to old Warhol cover art.

  22. FLEA Says:

    Bought it today, the covers great, albums great. Yes they are having an educated throwback to the Warhol/Sedwick era with the photos and mole.
    Seeing the first concert London tomorrow…..
    Nice to see some art in the artwork, as well as the music.
    Can I nominate the grammy now?

  23. ethel Says:

    mang, no one’s concerned that she sold out. it’s fantastic when lots of people like good music. it’s just that cat power used to make interesting music, and now she makes adult contemporary songs for easy listening. what a shame.
