Okay so ‘That Thing’ is technically a bonus track on the collection and it isn’t a cover of Lauryn Hill, but it’s still a pretty big step in a bold new direction for the singer-songwriter. It’s been produced by Justin Raisen, who’s worked alongside Angel Olsen and Sky Ferreira. While it retains all of her usual bittersweet magic, but it’s a shimmering, vintage power pop number that sees Hazel at the boldest she’s ever been.
