The FACT favorite recasts a standout from Chan Marshall’s latest album.
The Kraut-lite ‘Manhattan’ appears on Cat Power’s 2012 album Sun, a propulsive tribute to New York’s most esteemed borough. Hemsworth’s remix turns the song’s whimsy into something wistful, marrying his trademarked style with vocals from Marshall and guest rapper Angel Haze. For Haze, it’s another opportunity to opine on her adopted hometown, following her breakthrough single ‘New York’.
Stream/download a radio rip of the remix and compare it to Cat Power’s original, both below. Hemworth’s European tour starts this week.
