Eera calls on friends for covers EP

By | Published on Friday 14 September 2018


With a bit of momentum behind you, it’s always good to get another interim release out to keep things going. A remix EP would probably do it, but Eera’s not interested in that. Instead, she’s got some mates to record their own versions of her songs.

“I’ve always wanted to do a sort of collaboration with my friends, and I thought that this would be the perfect way to do it”, she says. “I’ve never been a fan of remixes, so I figured that a covers EP would be way more exciting! These guys are not only some of my best mates, they’re also incredibly talented musicians, so I feel very humbled that they agreed to do this”.

The acts/mates who have contributed to the ‘Friends’ EP are Farao, The Mantis Opera, Douglas Dare and AlaskaAlaska. The EP itself is out on 26 Sep, and AlaskaAlaska’s version of I Wanna Dance’ is out now. Listen here:

If you want to hear Eera’s own version of these songs, but not in recorded form, she’ll be supporting Mitski around the UK this month and next.
