Cat Power’s shared another offering off her upcoming Covers album, revealing her rendition of Dead Man’s Bones’ “Pa Pa Power.”

“I started playing this solo in 2012 (originally more dissonant and trance-y), when the Occupy Wall street protests were going on,” the singer-songwriter explained about her song choice. “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.’”

Cat Power announced her Covers project earlier this month, sharing her takes on Frank Ocean’s “Bad Religion” and The Pogues’ “A Pair of Brown Eyes.” The album comes out Jan. 14, 2022.
