Before the new year, Bethel Music’s Amanda Lindsey Cook reemerged to fans on social media after a long hiatus, posting a handwritten note which explained the singer’s absence, hinting at new music in the works. Today, Cook reveals the letter’s allusive meaning to announce her upcoming House On A Hill, set to release Mar. 29.
“I think it’s really essential to create rhythms of rest. There are some things that only actually ever happen when we slow down long enough to be still and let everything catch up to us. It’s the wound in us that wants to be healed that’s trying to catch up,” said Cook. “This record, in particular, came at a really crucial moment. One of my producers basically said to me, ‘I think you need to write your way through it. I think you need to sing your way through it.’”
“In that space, when things were really tender and fragile, I thought it was important to keep friends close and just create a space that felt really vulnerable and intimate,” shared Cook. “I can’t really wrap words around it. It was just the healing that comes from being with people; being with friends; being known and seen and loved.”
Coinciding with the announcement of the album, Cook has released a brand-new music video for the breathy yet emboldening track, “Awakening,” mirroring the singer’s own personal journey throughout the making of the project.
