Cat Power Shares Cover of Dead Man’s Bones’ ‘Pa Pa Power’, Announces Tour

    Cat Power has unveiled her cover of Dead Man’s Bones’ ‘Pa Pa Power’, the latest preview of her upcoming album Covers. The track follows her renditions of Frank Ocean’s ‘Bad Religion’ and The Pogues’ ‘A Pair Of Brown Eyes’. Watch the Greg Hunt-directed video for it below.

    “I started playing this solo in 2012 (originally more dissonant and trance-y), when the Occupy Wall street protests were going on,” Chan Marshall said of her decision to cover ‘Pa Pa Power’ in a press release. “Occupy was bunkering down and saying, ‘This shit’s fucking fucked up.’ And helping citizens be a voice in their local government. They got a lot of good things done, but the American media killed the movement. I felt like this song was relative to that. The American media has always penalized any sort of social progressiveness and is always the first to express conservative rhetoric against something that is beneficial to the nation. I’d open with this song on the 2013 China tour. ‘Burn the streets, burn the cars.’”

    Covers is due out on January 14 via Domino. In addition to the new single, Marshall has also announced a 32-date North American tour for 2022 – check out her full itinerary below.
