Roots-pop songbird Lissie
will release a new EP Covered Up
With Flowers

Possum. The EP is a collection of five cover songs, featuring
her versions of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”, Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit
Of Happiness”, and Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” (live
videos of which have garnered more than five million combined views on
YouTube).
