Published Jan 10, 2019Hannah Georgas released her last full-length back in 2016 with For Evelyn, but the Canadian singer-songwriter has finally returned with some (kind of) new material. She'll release an EP of cover songs called Imprints, which is due out on March 8.
Aptly arriving on International Women's Day, the four-song offering both honours some of Georgas' influences and features some of her female contemporaries.
Imprints opens with a cover of "No Need to Argue" by the Cranberries, revamped with guests Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius. It's also the first song to be revealed by Georgas, and you can stream it below.
"The Cranberries had such an impact on me growing up and is still one of my favourite bands," Georgas said in a press release. "There is so much emotion and realness behind Dolores O'Riordan's lyrics and in my opinion, this track is one of the most simply and perfectly put 'break up' songs. I was gutted when I heard the news of Dolores' passing this time last year. I know I don't know her but I feel like I did because she helped me through so much growing up listening to her music."
Elsewhere on the album, Georgas takes on Eurythmics' "Love Is a Stranger" with Montaigne, Janet Jackson's "That's the Way Love Goes" with Emily King. and Tegan and Sara's "Back in Your Head" with Tamara Lindeman of the Weather Station.

Georgas will also perform the EP at a Toronto show at Lula Lounge on March 7. Donavan Woods, Rae Spoon, Terra Lightfoot and the Weather Station will also perform. Find details here.
