Georgia – Running Up That Hill

Last January, Georgia’s one-woman concert at ESNS was one of my highlights of the showcase festival. She played most of the tracks of her second album Seeking Thrills, which had been released a week earlier. But one of the stand-out songs she played was not on the record: a cover of Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill.

That omission has now been corrected. Last week, the β€˜Ultimate Thrills Edition’ of Georgia’s album came out. 27 extra tunes make it a whopping 40-track release. 26 of those are (previously released and unreleased) remixes of the many singles off the album. And then there is Running Up That Hill. Georgia’s career was an up-hill affair already, by this cover, that fits her like a glove, will push it even further.

On the track, Georgia says: β€œClosing 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.”
