If Chan Marshall’s Myspace blog is any indication, we can expect a new Cat Power record this January via the Matador label. Reprising her love of cover tunes, the set will be a continuation of 2000s The Covers Record that collected twelve tracks (Stones, Velvet Underground, etc) that had undergone the Marshall treatment. The Marshall Treatment…that sounds like a good band name. Any takers?
