'One of the most emotionally intense songwriters around ... her riskiest, most vital album, not to mention one of her greatest' Rolling Stone
Returning to solo performance for the first time in years, the American singer-songwriter Chan Marshall (AKA Cat Power) presents music from her hit album Sun. 'It is don't look back, pick up, and go confidently into your own future, to personal power and fulfilment,' she says of Sun, which she wrote, recorded and produced herself.
This affirmation of confidence and independence embraces a wide palatte of styles: the classic Cat Power haunting guitar and provocative vocals; the Latin-influenced nine-piano loop; the upbeat electronica. This is defiantly modern and global music that sums up the optimism and humour of today's solo Cat Power after years of collaborations and performing with her Dirty Delta Blues Band.
