Acclaimed indie-pop singer-songwriter Hannah Georgas has just premiered new song “Waste”. NPR Music’s Robin Hilton describes the song as, “a syncopated wonder with pulsing horns” and “a frenetic, horn-powered jam” and goes on to describe her new album as “immediately arresting.”

“Waste” is from Georgas’ anticipated 3rd studio album For Evelyn out June 24 via Dine Alone Records. The single can now be streamed + shared via SoundCloud and is available for pre-order at http://bit.ly/forevelyn. Each digital pre-order comes with an instant download of “Waste”, as well as the first single, “Don’t Go,” and the album track, “Rideback.” Recently, Hannah appeared on CBC q’s Friday Live. Check out her live performance of “Waste” HERE and “Crazy Shit” HERE.

Already receiving widespread acclaim, Idolator praises, “Hannah Georgas does pop differently. Take ‘Don’t Go,’ the first taste of her third LP, For Evelyn. It tackles profound themes like coming to grips with the mortality of loved ones while still delivering a soaring, bittersweet chorus.” Additionally, The Wild Honey Pie asserts, “…strikes a perfect balance between lush production and dynamic quiet. The track slowly builds in intensity, as striking percussive hits and her vibrant vocals lead towards the powerful chorus” and Nerdist declares, “‘Rideback’ opens in gorgeous fanfare. Myriad horns wax and wane in shifting harmonies before Georgas’ questioning vocal cuts through.”
Hannah recently announced that she will open for City and Colour at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on June 17, 2016. Also announced are North American Tour dates including dates with Sam Roberts Band and Australia’s Boy & Bear (full routing below).

Named after Hannah’s “compassionate, patient, kind and beautiful” 98-year-old grandmother, For Evelyn was produced by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck), mixed by Nicolas Vernhes (The War on Drugs, Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, etc) and features collaborations with Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother) and Andy Shauf.

>Since her debut in 2009, Georgas has released two full-length albums (This is Good (2010) and Hannah Georgas (2012)), toured alongside Sara Bareilles, Kathleen Edwards and City and Colour, has had her music featured on HBO’s hit show, Girls. She has won numerous awards and racked up multiple nominations, including four JUNO nods, for everything from Best New Artist to Songwriter of the Year. Her most recent self-titled album received widespread critical praise, including notice at NPR Music, Mojo, the Vancouver Weekly and The Huffington Post, which called her “phenomenal.” For more information, visit http://www.hannahgeorgas.com/.
