Cat Power unveils cover of 'What The World Needs Now'

After returning earlier this year to release her critically-praised new album 'Wanderer', Cat Power has now unveiled a new version of the 1964 Burt Bacharach and Hal David track 'What The World Needs Now'.

Previously available on a bonus 7” as part of the deluxe edition of her latest full-length, the cover is now available to stream and sees the frontwoman evoke more of the same emotion that made her new LP such a captivating listen.

“I wanted to release a song with a message of hope,” says Chan Marshall. “‘What the world needs now is love sweet love,’ is a lyric anyone can embrace right now.”
