Hollie Cook combines her unique vocal talent with charming charisma to craft her own dynamic strand of lovers rock with enduring tropical vibes, weaving a path from her West London roots to an arena of diverse collaborations, critically acclaimed records, and iconic live appearances around the world. Cook’s ability to continually surprise, delight, and progress solidifies her position as one of the most exciting voices in reggae, and this is crystal clear on her third full-length and Merge debut, Vessel of Love.
The tropical pop chanteuse has already cemented her position as one to watch this year after the release of lead single “Angel Fire” in July. The first taste of the new album received rave reviews from international outlets such as Mass Appeal, Clash, and Je Ne Sais Pop, and the track was playlisted on BBC Radio over the summer. Hollie’s vibrant, spirited take on lovers rock radiates positivity, allowing her to transcend the confines of a genre.
Both the limited edition translucent pink and standard black vinyl is housed in a die-cut printed dust sleeve with lyrics and credits, inside a jacket printed with spot-gloss details and featuring aquatic artwork by Robin Eisenberg.
