The singer and songwriter Chan Marshall, also known as @catpowerofficial, has a new child, a new label and a new lease on life with her 10th album, “Wanderer.” Her 10th LP will be out on October 5; it contains, in the abstract poetic fragments of any #CatPower album, the reasons she could not just pack it all in. For one, she’s still too vibrant a songwriter, with too extraordinary a voice and too many feelings, to stop now. Her first release in more than 6 years, “Wanderer” also represents a career rebirth of sorts. She had an ugly breakup with Matador, which she would call her ex-label. “I understood that I was a product,” she said, “and I always thought I was a person.” None of which is to say that she’s lost her frenzied edge or relentless vulnerability. In person, Chan is at turns glamorous, self-effacing, eloquent, self-hating, jittery, effusive, impenetrable, endearing, curious, frustrated and frustrating, a near-constant stream of consciousness and conversational tics. An eternally exposed nerve who refuses to present as fully healed or whole — even in the era of self-care and commodified feminism — she has always sounded as if she’d seen some things. Now, at 46, she truly has the life experience to back up her songs, steeped as they are in the soul and blues traditions, a rarity in indie rock. @ryanpfluger took this photo of #CatPower.
