Music: Cat Power Coughs Up Tracklist for New Album

Cat Power -- avoiding the hot tin roof in background

Cat Power (Chan Marshall to her parents) will release a new album January 22 on longtime label Matador and it's a sequel of sorts to her 2000 disc Covers. Like Covers, Jukebox contains her re-interpretations of songs made famous by others. Unlike Covers, there are two originals included as well. Among the interesting choices: Kander and Ebb's "New York, New York", Creedence Clearwater Revival's angry anti-war barnburner "Fortunate Son", and Chips Moman's and Dan Penn's "Dark End of the Street" which is becoming something of an indie rock touchstone having already been tackled by Frank Black. Here's the full lineup:

"Theme From 'New York, New York'" (Kander/Ebb; originally sung by Frank Sinatra)
"Metal Heart" (Cat Power)
"Ramblin' (Wo)man" (Hank Williams)
"Song To Bobby" (Cat Power)
"Aretha, Sing One for Me" (J Harris/Eugene William; originally sung by George Jackson)
"Lost Someone" (James Brown)
"I Believe in You" (Bob Dylan)
"Fortunate Son" (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
"Silver Stallion" (Lee Clayton)
"Dark End of the Street" (Chips Moman/Dan Penn; originally sung by James Carr)
"Don't Explain" (Billie Holiday)
"Woman Left Lonely" (Spooner Oldham/Dan Penn, popularized by Janis Joplin)
