Chan Marshall has led a troubled life.
Yet for a while there, it seemed that the singer had found some sense of peace. Her output was being devoured by a wider and wider audience, while her alcohol and mental health issues appeared to be behind her.
Tragically, 2013 opened with a series of blows for Cat Power. Chan Marshall was forced off the road, battling illness and severe financial difficulties while her latest album 'Sun' ironically enjoyed renewed critical praise.
Taking time off, Chan Marshall has signalled her return. Posting the video for 'Manhattan' online, Cat Power will perform on 'Later... With Jools Holland' next week before performing a one off headline show at the Roundhouse - details below.
First, though, watch the clip for 'Manhattan'.
