The threads of new music began to form for Hein during his time living in Cornwall, where British coastal life provided an outlet for him to reflect and muse on the wealth of new experiences touring “The Art of Escape” had brought him.
The first entry in this new chapter for Hein is new single, “Hear My Voice”. A song about falsehoods and self-constructed versions of ourselves. Co-Produced by Will Hicks (Ed Sheeran, James Hersey) and the singer himself in the UK, the result is fresh; the foundations of Hein’s folk/indie pop styles are still present, though the songwriter has begun exploring other genres such as R’n’b and electronic music. Artists like Frank Ocean and Chet Faker helped inspire this new direction. The same approach is also apparent in “Over Again": “The song is about disbelief, the denial you feel when something you thought was going to last forever ends. I tend to get overly involved in things so I'm prone to these kinds of situations.” said Hein Cooper about this second excerpt from his upcoming album.
