Cat Power – New 10″ / Digital EP Coming Dec. 9

October 1st, 2008 at 4:55 pm by Gerard

Have you ever tried to cram a double 10″ EP inside a Christmas stocking?  We haven’t either, but it’ll be fun to try this December, as we’ll be releasing a new Cat Power  2X10″, ‘Dark End Of The Street’  — it shall also be available through your favorite digital retailers (including the Matador store).  Featuring additional covers recording during the sessions for ‘Jukebox’,  the track listing can be found below.  In keeping with prior practice / the Matablog style guide, we’ve listed the performers most responsible for popularizing the songs…don’t worry San Francisco journalists, we’ll make sure the proper composers are paid and credited!

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)*

* – previously unreleased recordings.

    I don’t know about that practice there, Gerard. What if someone gave credit to Axl Rose for writing “knocking on Heaven’s Door”.

  8. Gerard Says:

    we’re not crediting the Pogues with having written the song in question, sir. We’ve merely (as it says above) taken the opportunity to list the performers most commonly associated with the song and/or the performers whose versions Chan’s allude to. The 10″ will feature full and accurate composition and publishing credits.

    YES! I saw her and the DDB perform some of those songs this summer and they moved me like a southern girl at a summer revival! haha Thanks to Chan and Band for releaseing this! ..but will she ever grace us with a release of “How Can I Tell You” from the Debeers ad? I know alot of fans have been bugging the shit out of her about it, but it’s just so good….

    ps- I hope She’ll release some more of the songs she’s written herself. Those are my favorite, Chan uses words in a way unlike any other female singer today.. and there’s a need for strong women artists with views like hers.. I miss her own stuff.. Much Love and Peace, a long-time fan

    Dark End of the Street is a good cover, and a good song, but I was really looking forward to new ORIGINAL cat power material…i mean, covers are cool – but i like the songs chan actually writes better.

  12. Gerard Says:

    Chan has not retired from writing or recording her own material. We’re pretty confident her next full length album wllll either be all originals or about 90% in that direction…
