Second Coming: Hollie Cook Returns with “Twice”

Words by Natalie Weiner—

Lovers rock revolutionary and LargeUp favorite Hollie Cook is back and ready to take 2014 by storm with her dubby reggae sound. The British singer is preparing to release her second full-length album in May, and, frankly, we can’t wait. Entitled Twice, the LP continues Cook’s exploration of what she describes as “tropical pop”—basically, a whole slew of different influences from around the world (jazz, ska, pop, etc.) combined with classic-sounding, yet totally-fresh deep dub grooves. With the assistance of Prince Fatty, who produced Cook’s debut, our pick for 2011′s album of the year, she’s built on that sound while taking it in a whole new direction.

Audio: Peetah Morgan x Hollie Cook, “Independent Jamaica”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

With Jamaican independence celebrations just days away, VP Records is set to drop its Out of Many, 50 Years of Reggae compilation on Tuesday, July 31. The three-disc set, which features one song from each of the 50 years since Jamaica gained its independence, begins and ends with the same tune: “Independent Jamaica” originally recorded by Lord Creator in 1962 and covered, on the compilation’s only previously unreleased track, by Peetah Morgan (of Morgan Heritage) and Hollie Cook.
