Marika Hackman recently surprised fans with details of a new album, Covers, and shared her rendition of the beloved Grimes track Realiti. Today, Hackman unveils two more tracks from the album.
First up is her gorgeous interpretation of Elliott Smith’s beloved Between the Bars. "I've been playing Between the Bars live for a while now, on the last few tours and in live streams. It's been nice to play around with the arrangement, and I hope people enjoy what I've done with this recorded version," offered Hackman about the track. In classic Marika style the opposing track couldn’t be more different - All Night sees her tackling one of the standouts from Beyonce’s Grammy nominated Lemonade. Again, she flips the song on its head. Joined by a choir of stacked vocal harmonies, Marika’s voice transcends to conjure a deep emotional resonance.
Watch both below.
Covers is a darkly beautiful, self-produced album which showcases a more vulnerable side, out 13th November via us in World-ex America and on Sub Pop in North and South America. Preorder your copy here.
Marika has also announced a live stream taking place in an abandoned swimming pool on album release day. Tickets for the show will be available when fans pre-order the album. It occurs on 13th November at 8.30pm GMT and 9pm EST/6pm PT.
