Marika Hackman

Announces limited edition white vinyl of her critically acclaimed new album ‘Covers’ 

+ releases live video cover of Sharon Van Etten’s ‘Jupiter 4’

In November of last year Marika Hackman released ‘Covers’, a darkly beautiful, self-produced album which showcased a more vulnerable side of Marika than we have seen since her breakthrough debut album. ‘Covers’, which was released by Transgressive for World-ex America and Sub Pop in North and South America, was hailed as 6 Music’s Album of The Day and was critically acclaimed across the board. 

Following the first pressing of the album selling out, Hackman today announces an exclusive limited edition white vinyl version of the album, available for pre-order now and out on March 26th.

On album release night, Hackman performed with her full band in an abandoned swimming pool to celebrate the release of her beguiling record. Fans can now relive the show as Hackman today releases her beautiful cover of Sharon Van Etten’s ‘Jupiter 4’ performed on the night and filmed by Stolen Sessions. 

Hackman’s version of the Van Etten cut is as striking as it is understated on record and is elevated even further in the live setting: it really is a joy to behold

Marika on ‘Jupiter 4’: “I love this song so much and it was such a wonderful process creating a cover version of my own.  Performing it live was a real highlight of the set for me, I just loved having the opportunity to sing those lyrics and really inhabit the mood of the track.”

A stunning live cover, this will leave you in awe.

Across ‘Covers’, we hear Marika’s emotive voice set against sparse arrangements of guitars and strings with the occasional synth or scattered drum groove. Breathing new life into the songs she’s chosen, Marika reimagines work by some of the world’s most beloved artists, such as Radiohead, Grimes, Beyonce and Elliott Smith. It’s a suitably varied collection, but Marika’s intimate delivery and soft, nuanced and atmospheric touch to production, thread them all together effortlessly. 

Adventurous and versatile, ‘Covers’ continues Marika’s lineage in turning each body of work into a new take and perspective on her creative vision. She twists and turns, always surprises, and is never afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve. It remains anyone’s guess to imagine where she will head next.
