‘The Greatest’ is the new studio album from singer-songwriter CHAN MARSHALL, professionally known as CAT POWER (and not a greatest hits album, despite the title). ‘The Greatest’, which contains all-original songs written by Marshall, was recorded in Memphis at ARDENT STUDIOS under the supervision of STUART SIKES. It features the great Memphis session musicians, TEENIE HODGES on guitar and LEROY HODGES on bass (AL GREEN, HI RHYTHM SECTION), drummer STEVE POTTS, JIM SPAKE, HUBBY MICHELL and other legends. The combination of Chan Marshall’s superbly evocative and flexible voice, a soul voice even back when she played with indie rockers, with some of the greatest Southern soul players still alive, has produced a masterpiece! The songs, all original Marshall compositions, explore themes of Southern loss, longing and marginality.
