Cat Power (Chan Marshall) recently released a studio album entitled Wanderer via Domino Records. Marshall shared a cover of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s classic “What The World Needs Now,” which had only been available on a bonus 7″ as part of the deluxe edition of the album.

“I wanted to release a song with a message of hope,” said Marshall in a statement. “‘What the world needs now is love sweet love,’ is a lyric anyone can embrace right now.” In 1965, Jackie DeShannon was the first artist to record and release the song with music composed by Bacharach and lyrics by Hal David.
