Cat Power picks up Ryan Gosling’s band Dead Man’s Bones, announces U.S. tour


Cat Power shared a cover of ‘Pa Pa Power’ by Dead Man’s Bones, the duo of Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields.

Chan Marshall’s new version of the song – the original featured on the self-titled (and so far only) Dead Man’s Bones album – is taken from his upcoming LP “Covers,” which is scheduled to arrive on January 14. The disc has already been previewed. with interpretations of “Bad Religion” by Frank Ocean and “A Pair of Brown Eyes” by The Pogues.

The cover arrives alongside a video directed by Greg Hunt in which Marshall performs the song under blue lights, filmed at The Echo in Los Angeles. Check it out below:

In a statement, Marshall explained that she initially started performing “Pa Pa Power” live in 2012 amid the Occupy Wall Street protests.

“Occupy was making a bunker and saying, ‘This shit is fucked up. And help citizens make their voices heard in their local government. They did a lot of good things, but the American media killed the movement. I felt like this song was related to that, ”she explained.

“The American media has always penalized any form of social progressivism and is always the first to express conservative rhetoric against something that is good for the nation. I would start with this song on the 2013 China tour. “Burn the streets, burn the cars. “

Marshall announced ‘Covers’ last month alongside his renditions of Frank Ocean and Pogues. The album will also feature Marshall’s takes on “Endless Sea” by Iggy Pop, “Here Comes a Regular” by The Replacements, “I Had a Dream Joe” by Nick Cave, “I’ll Be Seeing You” by Billie. Holiday and more.
