Today Marika Hackman has shared her version of Between the Bars by Elliott Smith, live from an empty swimming pool. Watch below.
The live performance was directed and shot by Natàlia Pagès Geli and Tom Palliser, produced by Grace Manning, and mixed by Matthew Daly for Stolen Sessions.
Last month, Marika Hackman released Covers, a darkly beautiful, self-produced new album which showcases a more vulnerable side. Covers, which was hailed 6 Music’s Album of The Day, is out now on Transgressive for World-ex America and on Sub Pop in North and South America. Get your copy here.
Discussing the cover of Between the Bars, Hackman offers: "Out of everything on this record, I kept Between the Bars closest to the original. On the Any Human Friend tours in 2019, I started playing it in the set - I hope you like this version from the livestream. I just wanted to do a really good performance of it, more like an homage than a cover."
