Hein Cooper – ‘The Art Of Escape’ Album Launch Shows + Special Guests

Hein has recently been touring stadiums across Australia supporting UK megastar charting troubadour, James Bay & continues life on the road playing a bunch of great headline shows, as well as a national tour with local folk star Patrick James taking him from WA to QLD, before heading back overseas to do it all over again for the European and Canadian release of his record. The album was recorded in Canada with producer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National, The Local Natives), bringing out a fresh and genre bending  take on the genre. Not afraid to mesh acoustic with electronic and equally proficient in both lush and stripped back moments, the album is an accomplished start for the  young artist who embraces light and shade in equal measure.

“I often struggle with the state of the world and how society functions in such a cold and divided way,” said Hein. “But what hurts me most is the way so many people seem to bury these feelings and glue a false sense of happiness to themselves rather than confront the way they actually feel. I’d rather be authentic in my sadness than false in my happiness.” “I based ‘Rusty’ on this idea. I found that creating a positive happy sound underneath melancholic lyrics captured this feeling because it represented the fight between me and the world’s obsession to be happy all the time. Kind of like the opposite of Coldplay’s technique in ‘Parachutes’ of writing positive lyrics with a melancholy sound.”
