I suspect that there won't be anything before midnight GMT... It was the same when Sun was released. I couldn't go to bed until 2 AM. Razz

This release is a real surprise. I would have never thought after Manhattan video last week that a new single* could be released a few days later!

I was convinced that Bully would be on the next album. I like it's flavor and i hope that the next album will have such delicacy. We already know that the potential is here for that: Horizon, Time great healer, etc.
I hope too that'll have one day a lossless version of Bully...

*Notice though that Bully is sold as a new bonus track for SUN, not as a single.

I like SUN but I hope the next album will be more "simple". When I saw her performance yesterday on Jools I realized this is really the Chan/Cat Power I like. Delicate, subtle and simple.

I would be very interested to read the lyrics of this song, because i must admit that i don't understand everything. Here is what i understood, please correct me when i'm wrong or complete with what you understood:

Poor ... Bully
Through the grass and the river you chase
You were cruel, you were so mean
That i find right in my face
.............my back, my best friend
I could still feel that smile on my face

27 was a good year, the best
At the back of the bar, watching me dance in a dress
Remember that night in Paris, all those candles you lit
I could never forget

You and i and alcohol
Sleeping in the streets, sleeping on the train
Looking like a crook, with a cane
You come back home with a twisted.... and a devilish smile on your face

When you got sick
...................through with funny games
And now that the times have all changed
I can't find you, i can't see your face
I can't pretend i have a wish
.............you back into place

Nothing could be done
Fot this young wild son
Standing in the street with this hospital sheet on your arm
From the ......
And i look on your face and i lose crazy things you said to me

Looking glass mirror, looking past our fear
I used to find you running away with a smile on your face
I used to find you running away with a smile on my face
Everything we had to go through with a smile on our face
Everything we.......... with a smile on our face

It must just be something keeps it away
Must be something special that keeps you away

I might have missed 1 or 2 words, but this is pretty accurate.

Boy you were a Bully
Through the grass and the river you chase
You were cruel, you were so mean
Laughing right in my face
Although while you had my back, my best friend
I could still feel that smile on my face

27 was a good year, the best
At the back of the bar, watching me dance in a dress
Remember that night in Paris, all those candles you lit
I could never forget

You and all the alcohol
Sleeping in the streets, sleeping on a train
Looking like a crook, with a cane
You come back home with a twist of your tongue and a devilish smile on your face

But When you got sick
You were through with fun and games
And now that the times have all changed
I can't find you, I can't see your face
I can't pretend I have a wish
That would put you back into place

Nothing could be done
For this young wild son
Standing in the street with a hospital sheet on the run
From the police, the dumb girl on your arm
And that look on your face
All those crazy things you said to me

Looking glass mirror, looking past our fear
I used to find you running away with a smile on your face
I used to find you running away with a smile on my face
Everything we had to go through with a smile on our face
Everything we now know with a smile on our face

It must just be something that keeps it away
Must be something special that keeps you away

Its very cool to have "Bully" as part of the official canon. I can only hope for more from the sessions to be released. Thanks Chan!!!

I'm still asking myself why Chan would release this tune now. It's not on SUN and it doesn't sound like anything on SUN. It is a "classic" Cat Power song, that could have fit on "The covers record" for instance. So why? Anyway i'm glad she did. It put the song under the spotlights, something that would never happened if it was a track among others on an album.

If Chan released such a barebone song, could it mean that she's at peace with the "sad Cat Power" that one of her friends talked about when he heard SUN's demos, which finally lead to an upbeat album? Is the next album slowly in the making? 2014 could be a good year, the best?

I was really surprised to hear the studio version of 'Bully' and find out it was this kind of solo recording, very different from the live version she's been playing for a couple of years. and I have to say I even prefer the live version from Jools Holland; she really nailed it and the chord changes in the last section ("everything we had to go through with a smile on our face...") make it bigger and even more heartfelt. This video should shut up anyone who has the preconceived idea that she's a mess when she plays live. the vocal is just perfect, and she's surrounded by the audience as well as other musicians and she's still cool about it. One of her best moments ever.

Her voice is magic. Before that performance on Jools I almost forgot how beautiful, moving and soulful her voice was. It made me think of the first time I saw her live in Paris. I was mesmerized.

I felt exactly the same and Bully was the first song played that night. Those first seconds, they are like a tattoo in my brain: i can't get rid of this feeling.

You really nailed it.

I also feel this every time I listen to the first seconds of Metal Heart. Losing the star without a sky...

Have you noticed that the version sung on Jools Holland is slightly different from the studio track? The part with "The looking glass mirror" disappeared and it finished on "I could never forget".

Similar to "Manhattan" on Jimmy Fallon, they had to re-arrange it a bit to fit the time slot. This would be my guess.
