Cat Power, the longtime recording project of songwriter Chan Marshall, recently released Wanderer, her first album in six years. Before heading out on tour in support of the new LP, Marshall stopped by Los Angeles NPR member station KCRW for her first live radio session behind Wanderer. She chose one of the album’s slower tracks, “In Your Face,” and stripped it down even further for a raw and emotive performance. Watch it now via NPR Music.

Wanderer is Cat Power’s first full-length since 2012’s Sun. In addition to “In Your Face,” the 11-track album’s highlights include the lead single “Woman,” which features a guest appearance from Lana Del Rey, and a cover of Rihanna’s “Stay.” Wanderer is out now on Domino, and is available via the label and streaming sites.

Cat Power recently opened for The National at their Mann Center show, and will return to town on December 15 for a headlining show at Union Transfer. Find more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
