Her forthcoming album ‘Covers’ arrives next year.

Set for release on 14th January via Domino, Cat Power is previewing upcoming album ‘Covers’ by sharing her reworking of ‘Pa Pa Power’ by Dead Man’s Bones.

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

Produced in its entirety by Chan Marshall, ‘Covers’ also features reimaginings of recordings by Nick Cave, Iggy Pop, The Replacements, Billie Holiday, Lana Del Rey and more.
