Cat Power Sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert à présent disponible

Enregistré le 5 novembre 2022 au Royal Albert Hall de LondresCat Power Sings Dylan : The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert voit Chan Marshall recréer, chanson par chanson, l'un des concerts les plus marquants et transformateurs de son époque. Organisé au Manchester Free Trade Hall en mai 1966 - mais longtemps connu sous le nom de "Royal Albert Hall Concert" en raison d'un bootleg mal étiqueté - le concert original a vu Bob Dylan passer de l'acoustique à l'électrique en plein milieu du spectacle, suscitant la colère des puristes du folk et changeant à jamais le cours du rock 'n'roll. Cat Power Sings Dylan : The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert rend hommage, avec tendresse, à l'empreinte de Dylan sur l'histoire, et apporte une vitalité enchanteresse à plusieurs de ses titres les plus cultes.  

"Plus que l'œuvre de tout autre auteur-compositeur, les chansons de Dylan m'ont parlé et m'ont inspiré dès lors que j'ai commencé à les écouter à l'âge de cinq ans", 
déclare Chan Marshall.

L'artiste également connue sous le nom de Chan Marshall marquera la sortie de son nouvel album avec trois représentations à guichets fermés sur la côte ouest américaine au célèbre Troubadour de West Hollywood, en Californie, les et 7 novembre, ainsi qu'au Palace Theatre de Los Angeles le 8 novembre. Ces dates marqueront les premières représentations aux États-Unis de ce spectacle unique qui fut joué au Royal Albert Hall de Londres en novembre 2022 et à l'Opéra de Sydney en Australie en mai 2023. 

"Maintenant, nous savons combien d'applaudissements il faut pour soulever le Royal Albert Hall", 
a écrit The London Times à propos de la première représentation, tandis que The Telegraph l'a résumée comme une "célébration pure". Time Out Sydney a loué "la pure transcendance" de la performance à l'Opéra House ce printemps, saluant l'expérience comme étant "chargée d'un sens profond et durable de l'intemporalité, rendue encore plus puissante grâce à la voix pure de Cat Power. Nous aurions pu être n'importe où, à n'importe quel moment de l'histoire, n'importe où dans le système solaire... Magnifique."

Album | 10th November 2023

In November 2022, Cat Power took the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall and delivered a song-for-song recreation of one of the most fabled and transformative live sets of all time. Held at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in May 1966—but long known as the “Royal Albert Hall Concert” due to a mislabeled bootleg—the original performance saw Bob Dylan switching from acoustic to electric midway through the show, drawing ire from an audience of folk purists and forever altering the course of rock-and-roll. In her own rendition of that historic night, the artist otherwise known as Chan Marshall inhabited each song with equal parts conviction and grace and a palpable sense of protectiveness, ultimately transposing the anarchic tension of Dylan’s set with a warm and luminous joy. Now captured on the live album Cat Power Sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert, Marshall’s spellbinding performance both lovingly honors her hero’s imprint on history and brings a stunning new vitality to many of his most revered songs.
