Cat Power shares video for cover of Ryan Gosling’s band Dead Man’s Bones

Cat Power has shared a video for her cover of Ryan Gosling’s band Dead Man’s Bones’ song, “Pa Pa Power.”

Chan Marshall’s new cover as Cat Power sees her adding her own distinctive twist to 2009 track. The Dead Man’s Bones cover comes from Marshall’s upcoming album, Covers, out January 14th, 2022 via Domino. The accompanying video sees Marshall performing beneath blue lights as people dance in slow motion in the crowd.

“I started playing this solo in 2012 (originally more dissonant and trance-y), when the Occupy Wall Street protests were going on,” Marshall explains. “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.'”

Today’s cover follows previously released renditions of Frank Ocean’s “Bad Religion” and the Pogues’ “A Pair of Brown Eyes.”
