Cat Power unveiled a pair of new songs from her upcoming Covers album. One, is a proper cover of Billie Holiday’s “I’ll Be Seeing You” and the other sees Cat Power covering…Cat Power. The updated version of “Hate,” from 2006’s The Greatest is now titled “Unhate.”
The version of “I’ll Be Seeing You” was inspired by recent losses in Chan Marshall’s inner circle of life, which included Sun collaborator Philippe Zdar, who died in 2019.
“When people who you love have been taken from you, there’s always a song that holds their memory in your mind,” Marshall said in a statement. “It’s a conversation with those on the other side, and it’s really important for me to reach out to people that way.”
