Cat Power Combines Her Powers With Lana Del Rey In 'Woman'

A few weeks back, Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power) teased the release of her first album in six years — titled Wanderer, out Oct. 5 — by releasing 78 seconds of rich, hypnotic, appropriately mysterious music. It turned out to be the new record's title track.

Now, fans can finally hear Wanderer's first official single from the album, "Woman," which features a guest turn by Lana Del Rey — an artist who's pretty clearly drawn inspiration from Marshall over the years. Together, as you might expect, they forge a keenly calibrated mix of icy defiance and fogbound mystery.

Wanderer comes out Oct. 5 via Domino.

Stephen Thompson is a writer, editor and reviewer for NPR Music, where he speaks into any microphone that will have him and appears as a frequent panelist on All Songs Considered. Since 2010, Thompson has been a fixture on the NPR roundtable podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour, which he created and developed with NPR correspondent Linda Holmes. In 2008, he and Bob Boilen created the NPR Music video series Tiny Desk Concerts, in which musicians perform at Boilen's desk. (To be more specific, Thompson had the idea, which took seconds, while Boilen created the series, which took years. Thompson will insist upon equal billing until the day he dies.)
