Cat Power has announced a new live album called Cat Power Sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert, set to be released on November 10 via Domino Recording Co. Recorded November 5, 2022 at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Sings Dylan finds Chan Marshall delivering a song-for-song recreation of one of the most celebrated live sets of all time.
Held at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in May 1966—but long known as the “Royal Albert Hall Concert” due to a mislabeled bootleg—the original performance saw Bob Dylan switching from acoustic to electric midway through the show, which quickly became one of the most infamous moments in the history of popular music (we, as a culture, have since forgiven him for it).
Cat Power Sings Dylan both honors Dylan’s imprint on history and brings a new perspective to many of his most revered songs, including “She Belongs to Me” and “Ballad of a Thin Man,” both of which are out now. Check out both of those tracks below, and pre-order Cat Power Sings Dylan here.
