Cat Power strolls around NYC wearing a series of customised Sun-jackets, whilst she jams with a subway-based guitar player and basically guides the viewer around the city in the video for Manhattan. Directed by Chan herself and Greg Hunt.
Cat Power has unveiled the self-directed video for Cherokee, the magnificent album opener on her latest record Sun (which is really amazing). It’s the first video off Sun, but she already started working on the video for Ruin - busy bee, that Chan Marshall. Sun is out now via Matador and definitely worth the purchase. The video for Cherokee is somewhat funny, amongst others because it features zombies.
Got a major crush on Cat Power lately, all thanks to her new record Sun (and everything else she’s put out so far to back it up, obviously). I’ve had it on repeat (literally) for a couple of weeks now and am happy you can join in with the fun now, as the record is streaming over at NPR. This is Cat Power re-inventing herself and her sound, in a way we can only admire. Out on September 3 via Matador.
Less than a month until Cat Power’s new full-length Sun is out (September 3 via Matador, to be exact), yet I can already confirm it is truly amazing. Chan just shared album opener Cherokee, along with a subtle remix from Nicolas Jaar. The lyrics for Cherokee are great too, with things like “When I’m, I’m going down / feels like time is on my time / bury me upside down” and “Never knew love like this / the sun, the sea and I / never knew pain, never knew shame / now I know why.”
Cat Power recorded a new album and cut her hair short. The latter is of no (real) importance, but the former definitely is. It’s titled Sun and is out on September 3 via Matador. The record was mixed by Philippe Zdar, something you will definitely hear in this new song Ruin - it’s got a bit of an up-beat semi-disco vibe, which could also be because she recorded it in Malibu. Very appealing. Announcement video above, a free download below - Cat Power is back, ladies & gentlemen!
mp3 Cat Power - Ruin
Cat Power is recording a new album, but she also wants to do some charity. You’ll get access to an mp3 of King Rides By - a new version of the song that originally appeared on her 1996 full-length What Would The Community Think and the first taste of that new album - if you donate at least $0,99. Show your good heart and do it, you’re doing good and you get this great song in return. All proceeds benefit The Festival of Children and The Ali Forney Center.
