Cat Power Releasing Homage LP To Dylan’s Royal Albert Hall Concert

Written by:

Cat Power has announced she’ll be releasing a new album.

Out in November, Cat Power Sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert is a song-by-song duplication of Bob Dylan’s legendary performance. The plot twist of the show was when Dylan put down his acoustic guitar midway through his set in favor of an electric guitar. The move sparked anger amongst folk formalists, and has long considered to be one of the most important live shows in music history.

To be accurate, the show was actually held at the Manchester Free Trade Hall, but it’s been known as the Royal Albert Hall Concert for years, thanks to an erroneously labeled bootleg that made the rounds.

Comprised of fifteen songs, the set includes numbers like “She Belongs To Me” and “Baby, Let Me Follow You Down.”

Of the set, Cat Power said in a statement: “More than the work of any other songwriter, Dylan’s songs have spoken to me, and inspired me since i first began hearing them at 5 years old…When singing ‘She Belongs To Me’ in the past, sometimes I turned it into a first-person narrative – ’I am an artist, I don’t look back.’ I really identified with it like that…But for the show at Royal Albert Hall, I, of course, sang it the way it was originally written – with the respect for the composition…and the great composer.”
