Following the recent news that Hatchie has signed to Secretly Canadian, today she shares a cover of Jennifer Paige’s single “Crush” as a part of the label’s 25th anniversary single series, with all proceeds going to Bloomington-based non-profit organisation New Hope For Families.
On “Crush,” Hatchie fulfils her long-building desire to reimagine Jennifer Paige’s 1998 global pop hit, filtering its inescapable hooks and cheerful refrain through dense, dreamy and spellbinding walls of sound.
“I’d been thinking of covering ‘Crush’ for a few years before this opportunity arose,” says Hatchie’s Harriette Pilbeam. “I always thought the lyrics were much more moody than the bright chorus they were paired with, so I wanted to shift the focus. I was super keen to be involved with SC25 when asked. It’s cool to be amongst some great artists doing the same.”
Get on it, give it a listen.
