Cat Power Releasing New Album In September - Listen To The 1st Single Now

The beautiful and enigmatic Chan Marshall, a.k.a. Cat Power, has been a lot less enigmatic as of late, dropping some great live performances over the past few months and hinting at new material on the horizon. Well that new material will finally arrive in album form on September 4 via Matador Records.

Called Sun, the LP will be her first collection of original material since 2006's The Greatest. You can get a taste of it below with the leadoff single "Ruin" - click that YouTube link and download the MP3 as well. According to PFork, the completion of the record (as well as the haircut Chan's sporting on the cover) coincided with her split from boyfriend Giovanni Ribisi, thus making Giovanni Ribisi one of the dumbest men ever.
