Cat Power Performs “Metal Heart” On Letterman

Maybe Chan’s been listening to folks who mention, rightly, that the covers on her prematurely snored Jukebox aren’t up to snuff with the included originals. As we said after her recent Leno performance:

…We aren’t the biggest fans of Jukebox, though it does have its moments. Namely when Chan’s doing her own songs. We’re fans of “Song To Bobby”‘s meta-Dylanisms and the remake of Moon Pix’s “Metal Heart.” Mostly it’s the covers we find boring…

Only Chan knows for sure, but last night she gave a fine crouching performance of updated Moon Pix classic “Metal Heart” for Mr. Letterman, who rewards her with one of his patented, uncomfortably long hand holds…

Her band’s tighter than Letterman’s grip. Good job, Dirty Delta Blues.

Jukebox is out on Matador.
