Cat Power Unveils “Pa Pa Power” Video From New Album Covers (January 14 / Domino)


 Announces Full Band 32-Date US Tour For 2022

Cat Power, the singer/songwriter/producer Chan Marshall, has shared “Pa Pa Power,” a new preview of her forthcoming album Covers (January 14, 2022/Domino). Along with the music video for “Pa Pa Power” - Marshall’s rendition of the Dead Man’s Bones song - she has announced her return to the road with a full band headlining 32-date tour that will cross the US from January to May. 

Watch the Greg Hunt-directed video for “Pa Pa Power,” filmed at The Echo in Los Angeles here:

On deciding to record “Pa Pa Power,” Marshall says: “I started playing this solo in 2012 (originally more dissonant and trance-y), when the Occupy Wall street protests were going on. 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.’”

Marshall announced the hotly-anticipated Covers in early October with a performance of Frank Ocean’s “Bad Religion” and an interview on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Watch the “Bad Religion” performance here and listen to “Bad Religion” here, which NYLON says “hits like a freight train.” Marshall’s rendition was highlighted everywhere from Pitchfork and Vulture to the FADER (“windblown and expansive'') and Rolling Stone

She also released her “personal favorite,” a cover of the Pogues’ A Pair Of Brown Eyes.

Produced in its entirety by Marshall, Covers also features reimaginings of recordings by Nick Cave, Iggy Pop, The Replacements, Billie Holiday, Lana Del Rey and more, plus an updated rendition of the Cat Power song “Hate” from The Greatest (2006), retitled “Unhate” for the album.  

The 2022 tour includes 32 shows including Brooklyn Steel, Washington DC’s 9:30 Club and The Orpheum Theatre in LA. Through the fall she crossed the country on a tour with Alanis Morissette and Garbage and performed at Pitchfork Music Festival. See the full list of upcoming tour dates below.

Marshall’s work as Cat Power has defied genre and convention, her legacy rippling through the work of a wide range of contemporary musical luminaries ranging from Lana Del Rey and Angel Olsen, to Clairo and Phoebe Bridgers. Covers have long defined Chan’s work and she makes each of them her own. Her most recent record Wanderer (2018) even featured a cover of Rihanna’s “Stay” which she distilled to its most devastating lines; “they become a vessel of longing and desperation so spare and crushing that the song is, in classic Cat Power fashion, almost painfully raw (Pitchfork).”
