Cat Power – “Cherokee” (Nicolas Jaar Remix)

“Cherokee”, the second single from Cat Power’s upcoming LP Sun(September 4th, via Matador) gets a spooky reworking courtesy of producer Nicolas Jaar. By replacing the piano and drums with organs and strings, Jaar shifts the mood entirely, creating spacious ambience. Chan Marshall’s pleas of, “Marry me, marry me to the sky,” are now drenched in reverb. Instead of addressing the listener directly, it sounds like she’s singing from a great distance, her words even more desperate than before. –Jon Hadusek
