Lissie’s new covers EP Covered Up with Flowers hit iTunes today (everywhere next week). It includes her buzzed-about covers of Kid Cudi, Lady Gaga, and Metallica along with two new tunes, covers of Joe South’s “Games People Play” and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ “The Ship Song” (recently covered by Amanda Palmer).
Neither song selection may be as buzz-worthy as Gaga, but both find Lissie delivering knockout performances. “Games People Play” delivers a pleasant country-rock groove while the largely choral “The Ship Song” unleashes her voice at its grandest. Stream both below, then pick up the full EP on iTunes.
