Jun 18, 2012 Bookmark and Share

Following her 2008 covers album JukeboxCat Power's Chan Marshall has announced that Sun, her first bout of original material since 2006's The Greatest will see release on Sept. 4 via Matador. In a recent feature with UK publication The Stool Pigeon Chan says the long gestation time between records was a result of her relationship with actor Giovanni Ribisi, which ultimately ended as the album reached its completion. 

Says Chan, "You know that thing we’re all raised to want: a beautiful life with children — that family thing that is tangible? [pauses] Before, I tended to just survive, survive, survive. Gaining a lot of… not knowledge, not life experience… but I had this opportunity of travelling around the world, meeting all these people and having these experiences that have shaped who I am now.

“Then there’s this other part of me who wants to be a mother; who wants to love so deeply on a level I’ve never know; to have that connection with life I’ve never felt. It’s very different from singing a song and feeling in communion with humanity, so it was hard for me to be a believer in two completely different things. It was difficult creating both and that’s why it took so long. I was trying to grow my personal life in a way I never did before…”
