Cat Power has announced she is going on a North American tour next year supporting her upcoming cover album, Covers, due Jan. 14 via Domino. The tour starts two days later in Albany, NY, and ends in May. When Power first announced this album, she released a cover of Frank Ocean’s “Bad Religion.” Now, she has released her rendition of “Pa Pa Power” by Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields” band Dead Man Bones. Other featured covers on the album include songs by Iggy Pop, The Replacements, Nick Cave, Billie Holiday, and more. You can listen to the new cover and see the tour dates below.

“I started playing this solo in 2012 (originally more dissonant and trance-y) when the Occupy Wall Street protests were going on,” Cat Power said in a statement. “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.'”
