Thursday, time for a cover.
"Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" is a song sung by David Bowie, the title song of the 1982 film Cat People. Recorded in July 1981, the song was written by Bowie with producer Giorgio Moroder. A re-recorded version of the song appears on the album Let's Dance.
To day we have a Harrowing Bowie Cover where animals attack, apocalypse draws near in eerie, sprawling animated clip for "Cat People”, see below.
Shooter Jennings and Marilyn Manson’s made a brooding cover. Jennings and Manson's version of "Cat People" appears on the former's recent LP, Countach (For Giorgio), a covers collection featuring songs by electronic-music pioneer, Giorgio Moroder. Moroder and Bowie wrote "Cat People" for the film of the same name, but also reimagined it for Bowie's 1983 album, Let's Dance.
Directed by Valenberg and Blake Judd, the clip plays out like a NSFW 16-bit noir centered around a mysterious spate of brutal animal attacks and a group of renegade women who flee Hollywood with Jennings and leave a trail of destruction in their wake. The "Cat People" clip also boasts several references to Bowie, including a mural of him as Ziggy Stardust, and a shot of him as the blind prophet in the "Blackstar" video.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Jennings explained how the collaboration with Manson came about: "I invited him out to a party at this bar, and I said, 'Hey, you know 'Cat People'? You want to do that song on this record, 'cause you'd sound awesome doing it.' And he was like, 'I sing that song every night before I go onstage. That's my song I warm up to.' So one night I went over to his house at three in the morning and brought all my recording gear."
