Live: Cat Power

Cat Power’s upcoming European tour may be in jeopardy,
following a heartfelt announcement online last night

Yesterday evening the singer, born Chan Marshall, revealed through a note on Instagram, that she has been ill with a condition called Angioedema, which causes swelling of the skin, since the release of her new album Sun

Moreover, she announced that she has been struggling with bankruptcy, and the combination of the two has left her needing to ‘restratagize for [her] security and health’

The entire note can be read below and we will bring you more details if/when we hear them…
