Song of the Day: Cat Power, "Song to Bobby"

Song of the Day: Cat Power, "Song to Bobby"

It was one of my favorite albums of 2006, and I'm still listening to Cat Power's The Greatest well into 2007. But I'm really looking forward to the new album of covers that Cat Power (aka Chan Marshall) is releasing in January, as a companion to her 2000 covers project, The Covers Record.

Dubbed Jukebox, Marshall's upcoming album will feature her bluesy and romantically disaffected takes on classic songs by Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin, Hank Williams, and Frank Sinatra.

Matador just released a track off Jukebox, called "Song to Bobby," and it's actually an original tune, not a cover. In keeping with the theme, however, it is a stellar homage to Bob Dylan, complete with eerily Dylan-esque vocal stylings. Even if I weren't a shameless Dylan fan, I'd declare this a winner, so I can't wait to hear the rest of the album.

Update: Unfortunately, Matador has taken down the mp3 of the song that was released this week. But you can still see the full tracklisting for Jukebox if you
