[UPDATE: This contest is closed and the winner has been notified.]

Cat Power—the nom de record of Chan Marshall—has a new record on the way. Sun, due out September 4, is a notable departure for Marshall: She's eschewed the gold-toned soul of her last record of original material (2006's The Greatest) for something more modern, more beat-driven—something harder to define.

And Cat Power is coming! She's playing the Crystal Ballroom on Sunday, November 4, and we're giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky reader. Send an email to this address, and put "Cat Power" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email, and the name of your favorite Cat Power song (covers are fine, they totally count). We'll select a winner at random and send them on their way to the show. This contest closes on Monday at noon—good luck!

Non-winners can purchase tickets here, and you can take a listen to "Cherokee," the first track on Sun, right now.
