Cat Power Announces 2022 Tour, Shares Dead Man's Bones Cover
She'll play Toronto's Danforth Music Hall in April
Published Nov 01, 2021Cat Power has shared a version of Dead Man's Bones' "Pa Pa Power" from her new covers album Covers. She has also announced a 2022 North American tour that'll see her playing Toronto's Danforth Music Hall.
Chan Marshall has an uncanny knack for making other artists' songs feel like her own, and her covers always manage to find some new dimension to a familiar tune. Her interpretation of Dead Man's Bones — that's Ryan Gosling and Zach Shield's haunted-ass mid-2000s indie duo — is no different.
In a press release about the cover, Marshall said:
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."
Covers will also feature new interpretations of Lana Del Rey, Nick Cave, Iggy Pop, the Replacements and more, including the previously released covers of Frank Ocean's Bad Religion and the Pogues' "Pair of Brown Eyes." The full album arrives January 14 on Domino.
