Cat Power ft. Lana Del Rey "Woman"

Cat Power's Chan Marshall returned after a five-year absence on Wednesday morning (Aug. 15) with a sultry new single "Woman," featuring backing vocals from Lana Del Rey.

The song -- which will appear on the singer's Wanderer album (Oct. 5) -- is a classic Cat Power mid-tempo sizzler, opening with a gentle acoustic guitar strum and funky keyboard vamp under the lines, "If you know people who know me/You might want them to speak/To tell you about the girl or the woman they know/More than you think you know about me."

The song's visual, directed by Greg Hunt, finds the singer and her band performing the entrancing track on a rooftop at dusk and in a vividly lit recording studio, with Del Rey's vocals doubling Marshall's, though the singer does not appear in the visual. "I'm a woman of my word/Now you have heard/My word's the only thing I truly need," they sing in unison, repeating the word "woman" as the chorus rises to a peak before sliding back into the shuffling verses.

Wanderer, Marshall's 10th studio album, is the follow-up to 2012's Sun. “The course my life has taken in this journey — going from town to town, with my guitar, telling my tale; with reverence to the people who did this generations before me," Marshall said in a statement announcing the effort in July. "Folk singers, blues singers, and everything in between. They were all wanderers, and I am lucky to be among them.” The album is available for pre-order here
