Quick, run and open your windows! Listen to what all the people are yelling! It’s true what they’re saying: Chan Marshall (Cat Power for all you fake fans) has finally returned with her first album since 2012, Wanderer, and it’s out through Domino on October 5. Thank you, kind strangers! I’ll return the favor if I ever hear of any important Fiona Apple news!

Where was I? Oh yeah — hiatuses, wanderings, cats, and their powers, etc. Wanderer was produced my Marshall herself and features guest vocals from Lana Del Rey on a song titled “Woman.” Here’s Marshall on the record’s personal significance:

[Wanderer’s 11 tracks encompass] my journey so far. 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. Folk singers, blues singers, and everything in between. They were all wanderers, and I am lucky to be among them.

Speaking of the undying spirit of the eternal wanderer, as depicted in such classic films as Wild Hogs, Chan Marshall is headed out on tour in support of the album (and feline rights, of course). Check out the full itinerary of dates (in both North American and European flavors) by wandering on down below. While down there, you might find a nifty little trailer for Wanderer, as well as the full tracklisting for the album. Once you’re done exploring every digital inch of this page, though, why not mosey on over to these pre-order links for digital and physical formats and pick up a few records for family and friends? After all, everyone’s on their own journey, and every journey needs its soundtrack. This has been Casey Kasem.
