Cat Power: "King Rides By"

"King Rides By" is essentially a charity single, not necessarily an indicator that a new Cat Power album is in the works... which would be her first non-covers record since 2006's The Greatest.  In fact, it's not exactly a new song at all, but more of a retooled/extended version of a cut originally released on 1996's What Would the Community Think.  Nonetheless, it's a pretty effective re-do, its languid pacing arguably even improved upon by the extended running time.  Plus the video is directed by Giovanni Ribisi and stars Manny Pacquiao so how you gonna NOT watch it?
