Gordi has released her ‘Extraordinary Life’ EP, featuring four alternate versions of the titular single.
The EP includes remixes of the track by Alex Somers and Camp Cope‘s Georgia Maq. On top of these renditions, Gordi has thrown in a 2018 demo of the single as well as a live recording from her recent Sydney Opera House performance.

Gordi and Georgia Maq spoke to NME about their collaboration earlier this month.
“I got hit up to do a little remix, I found some chords and made this little thing,” Maq explained.
“It’s actually the first song I fully produced on my own. I think I did a really good job, I believed in myself.”
To celebrate the EP’s release, Gordi has announced a handful of new dates for her forthcoming tour. She had previously only announced shows in Sydney, but will now also perform in Brisbane, Canberra, Newcastle, Wollongong, Byron Bay and Hobart.
In response to border closures, Gordi has scheduled some of the shows for February 2021.
On October 14, Gordi added an additional Wollongong show to her upcoming tour. To cope with high demand, the singer-songwriter has also begun selling extra tickets to her Hobart show.
‘Extraordinary Life’ was first released earlier this year, as a single from Gordi’s second album, ‘Our Two Skins’.
Aside from her work on the album, Gordi has had a busy year thus far. In July, she appeared on triple j’s ‘Like A Version’, performing a cover of ‘Wrecking Ball’ by Miley Cyrus.
Gordi, a qualified doctor, has also been working on the COVID-19 frontline in 2020.
“Victorian hospitals are having huge numbers of staff being furloughed – meaning because they’ve had exposure to COVID-19, they have to go and isolate for two weeks,” she explained in an Instagram post last month.
“This means huge staff shortages so I’ve been filling the gaps where I can.”
