January 2008 is shaping up to be the month of the cover album.

Cat Power releases her second covers album, “Jukebox”, on January 18, which contains versions of tracks by Hank Williams, Frank Sinatra, The Highwaymen, James Brown, Bob Dylan and others.

According to Lynn, the album was sparked by Barry Manilow who suggested that she should consider covering Springfield’s songs.

Produced by Phil Ramone, “Just A Little Lovin’” will be released on January 25.
