Stepping into her third decade as an iconic Aotearoa artist, Hollie Smith is laying the groundwork for a landmark year ahead. Thrilling fans earlier this month with the announcement of her forthcoming first solo album since 2016 Coming In From The Dark (out on 22nd October), spine-tingling lead single ‘What About‘ featuring Raiza Biza, and recent launch of a new te reo version of her classic anthem with Don McGlashan ‘Bathe In the River’ (titled ‘Korukutia’), Smith ramps up excitement even further with today’s unveiling of a nationwide release tour — kicking off in late October and happening all throughout November. Those concerned Covid restrictions might potentially get in the way of seeing the multiple Tui award-winning artist live will be stoked to know there are contingency dates held in reserve for later this year. Smith’s shows are traditionally hot tickets, we recommend you secure your spot for these special events while you can…

One of Aotearoa’s most beloved artists Hollie Smith, makes her triumphant return with the announcement of her fourth solo album ‘COMING IN FROM THE DARK’, out October 22.
Hollie Smith will be taking her talent across Aotearoa, kicking off in October, showcasing her new Album in unique venues.
Tender, triumphant and full of hope, ‘COMING IN FROM THE DARK’ sees Hollie Smith at her most dynamic and features exciting guest appearances from some of New Zealand’s top musicians.
Now entering her third decade as a prolific Kiwi artist, with three #1 studio albums under her belt, Smith has come a long way since her first experiences with music as a teen in the Auckland Blues and Jazz scene. Most recently she worked alongside Don McGlashan for TVNZ series Waiata Anthems, documenting the making of a Te Reo Māori version of her iconic Kiwi anthem ‘Bathe In the River’, titled ‘Korukutia’.
