Covers – the acclaimed American singer-songwriter's third album of reinterpretations of songs by classic and contemporary artists – also finds her covering tracks by Iggy Pop, Lana Del Rey, Bob Seger, Nick Cave, Jackson Browne, Kitty Wells, The Replacements, Billie Holiday and more.
Cat Power, aka Chan Marshall, released her tenth studio album, Wanderer, in 2018 – which featured a collaboration with Lana Del Rey, and a cover of Rihanna's 'Stay'. More recently, she contributed to the soundtrack of Sean Penn's feature film Flag Day, alongside Eddie Vedder, his daughter Olivia Vedder, and Glen Hansard.
'A Pair Of Brown Eyes' isn't the first Irish track that Cat has covered. Her 2008 EP, Dark End Of The Street, included a rendition of 'The Auld Triangle', retitled 'Ye Auld Triangle'.
Her cover of The Pogues' classic has already earned the praise of the band's Spider Stacy.
"This has got its hooks in me and it won't let go," he wrote on Twitter. "Gorgeous interpretation."
