Hell to the yeah! Cat Power is back!
After a six-year hiatus, the singer-songwriter otherwise known as Chan Marshall is set to release a new album, Sun, at the beginning of September. And where there is an album release, there is almost always a tour.
Luckily, Miami totally rules and Marshall lives in the Magic City on a part-time basis. So she's kicking off her North American trek with an exciting stop at Grand Central on Thursday, October 11.
We have to change our panties just thinking about it.

It's going to be a sexy evening of stripped-down grit, tears, and joy. Marshall seems to be on a real personal empowerment kick, having played and produced everything on the upcoming Sun by herself. Excitingly, some of it was recorded right here in sunny Miami, so she kind of owes us this one.
Marshall calls the album "a rebirth," and according to Bob Boilen of NPR's All Songs Considered, it's definitely taking things in a new direction. It features more electronics, drum machines, and synthesizers. But thankfully, no mention of experimenting with dubstep.

The show in Miami will probably be a glorious mix of classic Cat Power and her new short-haired swagger. She may now be 40, but this bitch is fiercer than ever.
