Following up the release of her highly-praised Mercury Music Prize nominated album 'Seeking Thrills' earlier this year, Georgia is now capping off an incredible 2020 with the release of a very special cover.
The new rendition of Kate Bush's 'Running Up That Hill' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Charlie Di Placido and starring contemporary dancer and Georgia's brother Sid Barnes, and features on the new extended edition of her latest LP 'Seeking Thrills: The Ultimate Thrills Edition', which is out now via Domino Recordings.
Speaking about the new cover, she said, “Closing my live sets with 'Running Up That Hill' has been a pure joy, and it sparked the idea to record it. But, it didn’t start there, Kate Bush has been part of my life and a major influence on my work since I could sing a note. Her music was always played by both my mum and dad, and when I began to understand the way that sound and production worked, I embarked on my own intimate and personal journey with her music. For me, it was more than just a cover, it was emotional, and an experience I’ll always treasure.”
While her brother Sid Barnes added, “It has always been my dream to somehow find a way to create a dance for a Kate Bush song. This project with my sister, Georgia, came as both a privilege and an exciting challenge!. The goal was to try and touch upon Kate’s spirit, to try and not just reproduce her as an icon, but rather use dance to find an even deeper connection to her work.”
