download new cat power 'ruin'

 

I’ll be honest, I almost didn’t listen to this as I’ve never been a fan of Chan Marshall’s maudlin singer-songwriter style. However, Chan has reinvented her Cat Power moniker after a four year hiatus and a messy break-up with actor Giovanni Ribisi.

The first track from her forthcoming album Sun, “Ruin,” is a tight, jaunty and downright catchy number. Credit producer Philippe Zdar of French electro duo Cassius for pulling Marshall out of her shell:

“Ruin” — Cat Power (via stereogum)

For a fascinating look at Marshall’s journey through love, loss, addiction and creative rebirth, check out this great interview via the stool pigeon.
