Watch the new Cat Power video directed by Jim Jarmusch

@TomTaylorFO

Jim Jarmusch has directed the latest Cat Power video for her haunting cover of The Pogues classic ‘A Pair of Brown Eyes’.

The single is from Cat Power’s new album, Covers, which sees her tackle tracks by the likes of The Replacements, Lana Del Rey, Frank Ocean and Billie Holiday. 

The eclectic mix is tied together coherently by the prevalence of Cat Power’s (Chan Marshall) own songwriting sensibilities and sultry vocals that gives the selection of songs a carefully considered new coat of paint.

For the ‘A Pair of Brown Eyes’ video, Jarmusch collaborated with Marshall at Blonde Studio in New York City for a music video that transposes the misty sound of a Mellotron to the perfect ghostly visuals. Stark yet comforting both the video and the song have a sort of tranquil somnambulant air.  

This collision of sound and vision is something that Jarmusch has woven into all of his film work, from enlisting Neil Young for Year of the Horse to working with RZA on Ghost Dog. As he once said of his film work, Music, to me, is the most beautiful form, and I love film because film is very related to music,” he said. “It moves by you in its own rhythm.” That can certainly be said of his latest video. 

“As someone who deeply loves Cat Power’s music, getting to collaborate with Chan on this video was like a dream come true,” Jarmusch said of the collaboration. She’s so inspiring to me, of course as an artist, but she’s also just such an extraordinary person.”
