Chan Marshall is back and may or may not be better than ever.

Marshall, aka Cat Power, has a reputation for instability that has been solidified by multiple on-stage breakdowns. She also had a reputation for stunning music. Then she relaxed, got happy and mostly made covers. Then, her relationship came to a clearly painful end and she made a pretty happy sounding record, Sun.

Who knows what's going on in her head. Whatever it is, it resulted in another great record and it'll be nice to have her back on the stage. She hits the Ogden Theatre on Jan. 24. Tickets go on sale Dec. 19 for $33.50.
