Cat Power’s upcoming 9th album Sun is definitely one of the most anticipated remaining releases of 2012, and with less than a month left to go until the album’s release, we have a version of the record’s opening cut “Cherokee” courtesy of a young producer, Nicolas Jaar. Jaar sets his R&B-tinged inclinations aside for an ambient remix that picks up the poppy wistfulness of the original “Cherokee” and flies it way out over the water to a place that’s way more chill than any place Cat Power has visited before. It’s seriously approaching Christopher Cross levels of chill. It’s an affair more than a little reminiscent of the end of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon when Zhang Ziyi soars into the clouds.
