By Alex HudsonCat Power is currently finishing up her latest album, and as previously promised, the songwriter also known as Chan Marshall has returned with a holiday offering, a new recording of the "King Rides By" from 1996's What Would the Community Think.
Below, you can watch a video for the track directed by actor Giovanni Ribisi (Lost in Translation) and starring boxer Manny Paquiao. If you buy the song over on Mashall's website, your money will go towards the Festival of Children Foundation and the Ali Forney Center. In other words, this is a chance to spread Christmas cheer and get a new Cat Power single in the process, making this truly a win-win.
In the new year, stay tuned for more information about Cat Power's forthcoming album. In the meantime, check out this redo of "King Rides By."
