Cat Power’s ‘Free’ Gets Dance Remix for HBO’s ‘Girls’
New share from show soundtrack follows tracks from Jenny Lewis and Lizzo
On Cat Power’s “Free,” Chan Marshall coos, “True romance … when you dance.” Now a reworked version of that You Are Free standout arrives tailor-made to elicit that very response. Remixed for the second Girls soundtrack, the 2003 classic gets a pulsing new beat, some serrated synths, and a little bit of reverb-assisted urgency. We’ve heard other original highlights from the HBO show ahead of this: Jenny Lewis’ “Completely Not Me” and Lizzo’s “Paris,” with more on the way from Miguel, Beck, Lily Allen, and Christina Perri.
