Cat Power, aka Chan Marshall, performed the song “Woman” Wednesday night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The song is off her album Wanderer, due out tomorrow, Oct. 5, on Domino Records—the LP is one of our most-anticipated releases of the month.

“Woman” follows in the vein of Cat Power’s best tracks, a quietly defiant song that asserts her own self-possession without having to yell it from the rooftops. Marshall sounds positively dangerous over a sashaying bass line—performed here by TV on the Radio’s Jaleel Bunton—while she spouts off sneak-disses like, “your money’s like a weapon, a tool to get me / you think I’m like the other ones / well, my money’s like a weapon, tool for me.” The word “woman” becomes both flippant tell-off and rallying cry, a way of saying, “I’m in charge here, chief. Your input is not needed.”

Cat Power  will be touring for the remainder of the year—see those dates further down.
