Heart-Shaped Box (Lockdown Version)

A 1 track funk single (4m 13s) — released June 26th 2020 on Record Kicks


Itching to stay creative and active during these long lockdown days, Hannah & the band have been enjoying connecting with their fans and followers in a whole new way during the past few months. Putting musical direction in the hands of their loyal following for the first time, a cover song choice was put to the vote and as a result they were set the challenge of covering a truly classic/significant track. Originally released in 1993 'Heart shaped Box' became a hugely popular & life changing release for Nirvana as well as the many millions of fans who fell in love with it.

In this new recording, HW&A put their own musical spin on this cult classic highlighting how fundamentally any great composition can translate across different genres if embraced and adapted with care. Through countless back and forths with their mixing engineer, and rapid advancements to each of their remote recording setups; the band managed to sculpt this recording, despite lockdown restrictions. The song itself shines the light once again on the state of society and its turmoils; coincidentally more relevant than ever to all of us today, making this release far more poignant than the band ever envisaged.

This release is an ode to the world & its struggles, a nod to the past but also a move into the future, and most of all a tribute to all the amazing people who continue to not only support the band but also support all the important messaging and movements they try to encourage through their art and influence.
