Cat Power is set to release her ninth album, 'Sun', this autumn.

The LP will follow the singer songwriter's 2008 covers album 'Jukebox' and 2006's 'The Greatest' and will be out in the UK on September 10.

Over Christmas last year Cat Power posted the video for her single 'King Rides By' featuring a cameo from boxer Manny Pacquiao online. The track was available as a download from the singer's official website, with its proceeds going towards the charities the Festival Of Children Foundation and The Al Forney Centre.

In December 2011, the singer also took to her Twitter page Twitter.com/catpower to confirm that she had nearly finished work on the new album.

Previously, Cat Power had stated her intention to play every instrument on the record. "There's an inspiration in being furious that you want to achieve your goals. I think I was inspired by being disappointed in myself that I'd just been holding the microphone and I was disappointed in myself that I hadn't been playing an instrument," she explained.

"I think I wanted to prove to myself that I could try to create a relationship with it [playing an instrument] again and feel like I felt close to it. It's definitely there and it's a need [for me to play], but it hasn't been around."
