Song: Ruin
Artist: Cat Power
Album: Sun

I can't believe it's been six years since "The Greatest," Cat Power's last album of original material.  But next month, the wait is over as Chan Marshall is releasing her ninth studio album "Sun."

Oddly, it had been reported that work on the record happened quite soon after "The Greatest," with the title mentioned way back in a 2007 interview.  According to reports the album was delayed a bit by her 2008 covers album "Jukebox" as well as a relationship with actor Giovanni Ribisi.

Regardless, "Sun" is here and it's rather good.

Working with more electronics, some synthesizers and drum machines, "Sun" is only a slight departure from Marshall's previous work, but retains her soulful brand of art-folk.  At times spare and other quite groovy... "Sun" is great listen and recommended for fans of her previous work.
