Cat Power, the singer/songwriter/producer Chan Marshall, has shared “Pa Pa Power,” off her forthcoming album Covers, which drops on January 14, 2022 via Domino Records. Along with the 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.

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.’”

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.
