Wanderer is Cat Power's first album since Sun was released in 2012. She will be touring North America and Europe in support of the album.
Speaking about the album in a statement released alongside the announcement in July, Cat Power said: “The course my life has taken in this journey — going from town to town, with my guitar, telling my tale; with reverence to the people who did this generations before me. Folk singers, blues singers, and everything in between. They were all wanderers, and I am lucky to be among them.”
