Cat Power performs 'Stay'
18th September 2018
Today Cat Power, a.k.a. Chan Marshall, releases her version of ‘Stay’, the 2012 Rihanna single, originally written by Justin Parker and Mikky Ekko. This stunning reworking of the massive international pop hit showcases Marshall’s uncanny abilities as one of the great modern interpreters of songs.
“I love the tradition of covering songs”, says Marshall. “I think it’s one of the highest compliments you can pay another artist. It's one of the great traditions in American music and one of the true pleasures of music history.”
A beautiful performance of ‘Stay’ was filmed at the Los Angeles studio of Rob Schnapf (producer for Elliot Smith, Beck, mixing on Wanderer), by frequent Cat Power collaborator Greg Hunt.
‘Stay’ is the third song to be unveiled from the forthcoming new album Wanderer, landing Oct 5th via Domino, and follows lead single ‘Woman’ featuring Lana Del Rey.
Cat Power will be touring internationally in support of the album. All dates below are on sale now.
