Shooter Jennings feat. Marilyn Manson - Cat People

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.

Marilyn Manson: David Bowie 'Changed My Life Forever' "Every song of Bowie was a way for me to communicate to others," Manson writes. "It was a sedative. An arousal. A love letter I could never have written"

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."
