The latest release from Cat Power’s wonderful new record Wanderer is a rendition of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s 1964 hit, What The World Needs Now

“I wanted to release a song with a message of hope,” says Chan Marshall. “‘What the world needs now is love sweet love,’ is a lyric anyone can embrace right now”
