Georgia Maq Announces New EP, Shares Cover of Regina Spektor’s ‘Samson’

    Georgia Maq has shared a cover of Regina Spektor’s ‘Samson’, which will appear on the Camp Cope leader’s new EP Live at Sydney Opera House. It’s a collection of songs recorded during her recent performance there, and will be out on December 2. Listen to Maq’s rendition of ‘Samson’ below.

    “Samson is a very important song to me, being a greek woman with a moustache and hairy arms I was always bullied in school about being different, but then I heard Samson and it completely changed my perspective of my body,” Maq explained in a statement. “I started playing that song when I was 15 and it always brought me back to my power.”

    “I love how live versions of songs are different to the recording and I love the authenticity of a live performance, so I wanted to share that,” she added of the EP. “With the pandemic, it’s hard to go out and see live music so I wanted to bring that intimate experience to the listener at home. These performances were special to me because I had my beautiful step mum Rebecca Mason on the piano, as well as my ride-or-die string duo, Lucy Rash and Lucy Waldron, all of whom I am very lucky to call friends.”
