The talented Hollie Cook will release her second studio album “Twice” on May 27, 2014. The recording is the follow-up to her eponymous debut album,Hollie Cook, that was released to huge acclaim in 2011.
In 2012 a dub version of Hollie Cook was released – “Prince Fatty Presents Hollie Cook In Dub”. That same year Ian Brown asked Hollie to support The Stone Roses on one of their hugely anticipated reunion shows at Manchester’s Heaton Park.
Twice shows Hollie’s evident love of reggae joined by other influences including Bond-like strings, Brazilian percussion, dark disco and shades of Giorgio Moroder. She is joined on the album by Dennis Bovell, Omar, George Dekker and Winston Francis. The strings on the album are performed by the Macedonian Radio Symphonic Orchestra and choir. The album was produced by Prince Fatty.
The album will be available in various formats including vinyl, a collection of 7” singles, cassette, USB stick, plus a number of special additions, through PledgeMusic, the world’s leading online, direct-to-fan music platform.
