Chan Shares (a little) About New Cat Power Album

This past weekend was the big Matador 21 celebration in Las Vegas. The three day festival featured performances from Matador Records' roster of acts past and present. Of course that includes their little queen of gloom and doom, Chan Marshall a.k.a. Cat Power. Apparently she shared some news about her next album, which as of now has no title and no release date, so I'm not holding my breathe until it sees the light of day. But it is exciting news. According to the brief interview, Marshall is playing all the instruments for the new endeavor. This kind of gives the impression that she's moving on from the full band phase that possessed her last two albums, The Greatest (2006) and Jukebox (2008).

But who knows? Chan's a trippy girl and her mood for playing instruments could change at any moment. Check out the clip on Rolling Stone. She doesn't even face the camera, and I'm sure that was her choice. But hey... Prettiest Side of Face Ever? I think so.

I didn't embed the video because I don't like the auto-start thing it has going on. But here is a random horribly shot vid I found from Chan's Matador 21 performance..
