She’s back! After what seemed like an eternity, songstress Cat Power returns with her new single, Ruin. This song is taken off her new album, Sun, marking a brighter direction for the singer and drifting away from her former melancholy self. Despite its title, Ruin is an eclectic track with the opening verse delving into a light salsa mix of playful piano chords, thumping drums, and smoky vocals.
