Bio

Immense change has been at the forefront of Cooper's life for a minute now. With his debut album The Art of Escape, the Australian singer-songwriter Hein Cooper has toured tirelessly, supporting James Bay and Lukas Graham. Meeting the love of his life has been a transformative experience that informs his latest recordings (to be released on Nettwerk Records). In addition to themes around commitment, references to Aldous Huxley's Brave New World and Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn show Cooper's love of classic literature. Musically, Cooper – who's been compulsively listening to Bon Iver, Frank Ocean, RY X – has delivered songs framed in folk with a clear pop sensibility and, this time around, a bit of RnB vibe mixed into the ensemble.

Two outta two now in '21. All consuming love never sounded so good and it's stunning.

Make this your couple song. Hell, single people should probs get in a relationship just to make this their couple song. It's so full of emotion and connection - Hein's forte.
