So much ‘Gorgeous’ Hannah Georgas news flooding the internets all at once. Let’s see if I can’t summarise it all for you here.
For starters, and this is the biggest portion of it, new music is at last forthcoming. Your Thanksgiving playlist will be easy to organise this year as her self-titles sophomore record will hit the shelves October 2nd. Contributors to Hannah Georgas read like a laundry list of Canadian indie.
Graham Walsh from Holy Fuck produced the album. Howie Beck mixed it. And the album features the playing of our producer Graham, Wintersleep’s Loel Campbell and Tim D’eon, Mother Mother’s Ryan Guldemond with Joel Stouffer of Dragonette, Dean Drouillard (too many artists to name), Charles F of Wintergloves and Shadrach Kabango pitching in.

You’ll likely be seeing even more collaborations from Ms. Gorgeous in the future as she has found a new label in Dine Alone Records, home of the well-known (Marilyn Manson, Yukon Blonde, Library Voices, City and Colour, Hey Rosetta!) and up-and-comers (Chains of Love, Great Bloomers, Parlovr). This can only mean bigger and better things going forward.
If that wasn’t enough, for those of you who can’t wait until October, you can get a free preview right now! Hannah got together with CBC Music at their Vancouver HQ to shoot a video for the first single off the new record, Enemies. Check it out.
Watch out, Internet. Hannah Georgas is making a serious effort to conquer you. With all of that, she just might succeed, too.
