Cat Power and Iggy Pop recently shared their cover of John Lennon‘s “Working Class Hero.”
The song is part of a new compilation album, titled The Faithful: A Tribute to Marianne Faithfull, which was released on Friday.
The In The Q Records and the Women of Rock Oral History Project album features 19 spirited selections from Marianne Faithfull‘s songbook, to help raise funds for the English singer as she recovers from Long Covid.
The Faithful: A Tribute to Marianne Faithfull also features Tanya Donelly, Lydia Lunch, Bush Tetras, Peaches, and Shirley Manson, among others.
“Their interpretations of songs that I have recorded and performed over the course of my 60-plus year career is incredibly moving,” says Faithful.
Chan Marshall, better known by her stage name Cat Power, said, “Marianne has lived a life. She is a queen to all who know her, and all who adore her! Her framework of contributions to the world of music is unmistakable!”
“Every time I hear her gorgeous vocal sway, I am moved, I am closer to permanence,” she added. “In a world of dizzying, new fizzling arrows of song and voices, Marianne has always struck the bullseye of my heart and soul. I adore her like no other. A true Dame, beyond words. Royalty forever.”
