Marshall is set to narrate a forthcoming documentary about Janis Joplin. Titled Janis, the feature-length documentary from Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg will premiere at the Venice Film Festival this month (September).

As part of her narration, Marshall will read letters Joplin wrote to her friends and lovers. “This has been a labour of love, and I cannot wait to share Janis’ unique, intimate story with the world. Chan Marshall has delivered a beautiful, introspective voice of Janis’ by reading her letters,” Berg said in a press release.

Cat Power released her most recent album ‘Sun’ in 2012.
