Cat Power's new covers album is out January 14 via Domino, and she's just shared "Pa Pa Power," which was originally by Dead Man's Bones, the late-'00s band led by Ryan Gosling and Zach Hill.

“I started playing this solo in 2012 (originally more dissonant and trance-y), when the Occupy Wall Street protests were going on," Chan Marshall says. "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.’”

Watch the video for "Pa Pa Power," which was shot at The Echo in Los Angeles by director Greg Hunt, below.
