Cat Power - Lived in Bars

Cat Power has a new album coming out in late January. Titled 'The Greatest,' the album was recorded in Memphis under the guidance of many musicians associated with several soul and Motown classics. Stylistically, it sounds like Chan Marshall is moving away from her inflective, personal songs. This, along with her guest appearance on the latest Handsome Boy Modeling School album suggest that she is trying to abandon her sad, somber music. Matador Records has the song 'The Greatest' available on their website, and it definitely shows some progression from Marshall's past efforts. 'Lived in Bars,' sounds more like her previous work, but is still a joy to behold.
