Cat Power sure loves these exclusive online-only EP thingies. Just a few weeks after releasing one on iTunes, Chan Marshall has announced that she'll bless her buddies over at eMusic with one.
On October 3, the indie download store will make available a four-song session recorded in June 2006 on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic show. It contains solo versions of two Cat Power songs (the title track from her latest album, The Greatest, and "Good Woman" from 2003's You Are Free) as well as covers of Otis Redding's "Remember Me" and Hank Williams' "Ramblin' Man". We haven't heard 'em yet, but we're guessing they're probably heartbreaking, in typical Cat Power fashion.
Cat Power and the mighty Memphis Rhythm Band head to Europe for a brief trek in November.

01 The Greatest
