Juno nominated musician Hannah Georgas is set to be releasing Imprints, a collection of covers by influential women in her life, on March 8th in celebration of International Women’s Day. In honour of the announcement, Georgas has released a cover of The Cranberries’ “No Need to Argue.”
The 4-song EP will feature songs by The Cranberries, Eurythmics, Janet Jackson, and Tegan and Sara. Georgas will not be the only artist on the EP, as it will feature accompanying vocals from Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, Emily King, and Montaigne and Tamara Lindeman of Weather Station.
Listen to a preview of the album, with the release of “No Need to Argue (The Cranberries cover) feat. Lucius” below.
“The Cranberries had such an impact on me growing up and is still one of my favourite bands,” Georgas says in a statement. “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.”
In partnership with Massey Hall and Women in Music Canada, Georgas will be hosting a special performance of Imprints at the Lula Lounge on March 7th to celebrate self-identifying women and non-binary artists. She’ll also be joined by friends Terra Lightfoot, Donovan Woods, Rae Spoon, and The Weather Station.
