Cat Power, often hailed as the queen of covers, continues to fortify her musical legacy with a tribute dedicated to the legendary Marianne Faithfull.

Recognized for her exceptional cover albums, of which there are three, including the stunning renditions of iconic songs ‘New York’ by Liza Minelli’s and The Velvet Underground’s ‘I Found A Reason.’

Cat Power not only infuses new vitality into these compositions but also pays a genuine homage, showcasing her deep-seated love for music.

In a noteworthy collaboration with the iconic Iggy Pop, Cat Power has made a significant contribution to the highly anticipated Faithfull tribute album.

This project boasts an all-star lineup, featuring the likes of Peaches and Joan As Policewoman, and holds the promise of being the ultimate love letter to the influential artist.

Cat Power shared via socials “Marianne has lived a life!! She is a queen to all who know her, and all who adore her! Her framework of contributions to the world of music is unmistakable! Every time I hear her gorgeous vocal sway, I am moved, I am closer to permanence. In a world of dizzying, new fizzling arrows of song and voices, Marianne has always struck the bullseye of my heart and soul. I adore her like no other. A true Dame, beyond words. Royalty forever.”

As Cat Power and Iggy Pop collaborate to breathe new life into ‘Working Class Hero,’ fans can eagerly anticipate the forthcoming album that celebrates the enduring legacy of Marianne Faithfull.
