Hollie Cook covers Shanks & Bigfoot’s “Sweet Like Chocolate” (listen)
Hollie Cook has a new single out this week, covering UK garage hit "Sweet Like Chocolate" by Shanks & Bigfoot (which topped the British singles chart in 1999). Hollie is no stranger to covers, having brought her light touch to '60s beat group The Boots' "Walking in the Sand" and The Whispers' disco classic "And The Beat Goes On" on singles before. "I thought that would be a great one to try," says Hollie, "and slightly more contemporary than my previous cover attempts!" Taking the track into lovers rock territory is a great fit, the song premieres here, and you can stream it below.
Having toured North America back in the spring in support of her first album for Merge, Hollie has a few West Coast dates in September (including the Music Tastes Good fest) and has just announced UK dates for the fall, starting October 3 at London's Scala. All dates are listed below.
Hollie also sings on The Orb's new album.
