Marika Hackman returns with ‘Covers’, a darkly beautiful, self-produced new album which showcases a more vulnerable side, out 13th November via Transgressive in World-ex America and on Sub Pop in North and South America. The album features interpretations of songs by Air, Alvvays, Beyonce, Edith Frost, Grimes, Elliott Smith, Muna, Radiohead, The Shins, and Sharon Van Etten
Accompanying the news, Marika has shared her version of Grimes’ single ‘Realiti’ plus details of a live stream with her full band that will take place on album release day. Tickets for the show will be available when fans pre-order the album.
Marika explains how she came to choose the material:
“When it comes to covers, I like to pick songs which I have been listening to obsessively for a while. It gives me a natural understanding of the music, and lets me be more innovative with how I transform it.”
Fill your ears full of Hackmans gorgeous voice as she strips back Grimes track to piano and guitar. By doing this the beauty of the lyrics are revealed as the song takes on a whole new vibe. A great introduction to what will no doubt be a cracking album.
