Cat Power releases new video starring Manny Pacquiao
American indie/ blues singer Cat Power has released a new video starring Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao.
The track, King Rides By, is a slow-burning, blues-tinged love song in true Cat Power style and is seven minutes long. It's a reworking of a song of the same name from her 1996 album What Would the Community Think.
The video sees Pacquiao repeatedly punching a speed bag.

Proceeds from mp3 sales of the song will go to charities supported by Cat Power (real name Chan Marshall) and Pacquiao. Power is quoted by NME as saying that her new album, due next year, is near completion.
The last album released by the singer is 2008's Jukebox, her second covers album. She covered the Velvet Underground, Rolling Stones, Nina Simone and Bob Dylan, amongst others, on 2001's The Covers Record.
Power's songs have been featured in films such as V for Vendetta, Juno and My Blueberry Nights (in which she played Katya). She became a Chanel spokesmodel in 2006 and has been photographed by Karl Lagerfeld on a number of occasions.
