Not too long ago, Chan Marshall & director Greg Hunt grabbed a flatbed and filmed the music video from one of ‘Sun”s many highlights, “Manhattan” . Watch the video below, or at catpowermusic.com. In it, Chan visits some of the haunts she’s been frequenting since the early stages of Cat Power, as well as some of the locales essential to her musical foundation. Whether or not they secured a MOFTB film permit, well, I’m in no position to answer that.
On tomorrow’s (Friday, 4/4) episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Cat Power backed by The Roots will take to the stage to perform a rendition of “Manhattan”. Early next week she’ll kick off the new season of Later… With Jools Holland with a live performance that we’ve heard will be extra-special.
That’s not it. We’re excited to share a slew of new Cat Power tour dates, taking the band through North & South America and across Europe. We’ll see you out!
