“Manhattan” is an absolutely gorgeous wafting cloud of a song from Cat Power’s excellent 2012 album Sun, and its brand-new video effectively works as a love letter to the titular island. In the clip, which Chan Marshall co-directed herself alongside Greg Hunt, Marshall dances her way through town — floating over bridges on the back of a flatbed truck, drinks at Max Fish, hangs out with subway buskers. She doesn’t crush anyone at chess at the Washington Square Park tables, but if she’d done it, it wouldn’t have been out of place. This is a wonderful music video, and if you are not currently in New York, it will make you wish you were there. Watch it below.
Sun is out now on Matador.
