Perennial campus radio favourite Cat Power will issue Jukebox, her long-awaited second volume of cover tunes, on Jan. 22 through Matador.
Cat Power (real name Charlyn "Chan" Marshall) covers a wide range of repertoire on the album, and also offers up a new original. "Song To Bobby" was apparently written for Bob Dylan, whose "I Believe In You" is interpreted on the disc. A new version of Cat Power's "Metal Heart" is also included.
Cat Power's The Covers Record was released in 2000. Her most recent full-length, The Greatest, was released in 2006 to wide acclaim.
Here are the songs on Jukebox and the artists that first popularized them (at least somewhat):
* "Theme From New York, New York" (Frank Sinatra)
