There were more informations about this video in one of her last interviews: Chan paid everything with her own money and almost all the people involved in this project did it for free.

And as i wrote in the News section, the video is ready!

And there is now a Cat Power Vevo channel: it means that every time somebody watches the video from this channel, she will earn a little bit of money.

This video edit is 1 minute shorter than the album's version.
My only complaint: we don't see Chan enough.

From afasm instagram, isn't she the girl with the dog in the video:

It kind of reminds me of Logan's Run or something with the red/green triangle thing. This is so cool. Smile

Yes she is! When I saw the pictures of the video a few weeks ago I asked myself the same thing.

I don't get this video anyway...I like the post-apocalyptic atmosphere but the zombies? Shocked First the eagle scream and now the zombies? WTF? Laughing

It's good to see her though. Very Happy

The youtube counter is very special: 301 views but more than 600 "like". Laughing

edit: in fact it seems that while i'm writing this the real number of views is around 60 000.

Are these really zombies? At the end of the video the 2 "zombies" that they picked in the car are healed by a medicine. They are more "infected" than "zombies".
Yes this video is a bit "WTF" but as strange as it may be i find some kind of poetry in it. Zombies that are not really zombies, guns that are obviously plastic fakes (it would have been very easy to paint them black to make them look more real, so they look cheap on purpose).
I'm still not sure of what it means but it's a lot of fun.

After seeing this video again (and again and again Very Happy ) I like it now and as you said there is some poetry in it. The video is like the album: very puzzling but in the end it's beautiful. As you know I wasn't fond of Cherokee but after watching this video a few times I appreciate the song now.

Je continue en français. J'ai eu du mal à déterminer si ce clip devait être visionné avec un 45ème degré ou si c'était simplement cheap et mal foutu. Chan est quelqu'un avec beaucoup d'humour et avec de la poésie. En le revoyant plusieurs fois, j'ai compris que l'impression que ça m'avait donné la première fois n'était pas forcément la bonne, au même titre que l'album est déroutant. Il mérite plusieurs lectures, plusieurs écoutes. Il est beaucoup plus subtile et complexe qu'il n'y paraît. On lit partout que c'est un album plus léger, plus dansant, c'est vrai. C'est tout ça, mais c'est aussi beaucoup plus fin et profond que ça, à l'image de la pochette avec le gris, l'arc-en-ciel...

I'm 99% sure that the cheap aspect was made on purpose.
It's of course a nod to "B" or "Z" movies (Chan desperately trying to open the door while the back of the car is open Laughing ) but it's more than that. I'm still not sure of what she meant but that's what i call art: it makes you uncomfortable.

After what she said in a few interviews and with the recent hints on instagram, i'm quite sure that it was only the introduction.

Yeah, we don't have the story/concept in its entirety. It shall make sense when all the videos will be released...or not! Laughing
