Cat Power has been confirmed as a narrator of the upcoming Janis Joplin documentary ‘Janis’.

The forthcoming feature-length about the singer-songwriter will premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September and directed by Amy Berg, best known for her film Deliver Us From Evil.

Chan Marshall’s role in the production is to read a series of letters written by the late singer. Speaking about the movie, Amy Berg has stated:

“After attempting to get this film off the ground for 7 years, I am ecstatic that the film is finally ready to be seen. This has been a labor of love and I cannot wait to share Janis’ unique, intimate story with the world. Chan Marshall (Cat Power) has delivered a beautiful, introspective voice of Janis by reading her letters.”

Cat Power recently lent her voice to Adult Swim show ‘China, IL’, singing as the character Kei-ko, a “sad gorilla” who “was bred in captivity and has never been free.” Watch the preview clip from the episode below.
