Koia tetahi o nga tino kaiwaiata o Aotearoa, a kua hoki mai ano ia ki te tuku i tana kopae waiata hou, a Water or Gold.

I korero a Hollie Smith ki a Te Kāea i te ra nei, i mua i te tuwheratanga o tana kopae i tenei wiki.

Koia tetahi o nga tino manu tioriori o Aotearoa. Ko wai ra, ko Hollie Smith, "The new album it's been a while.”

E ono tau te roa o te tatari, engari kua tae mai tona kopae waiata hou, ko Water or Gold.

I whakahuangia a Smith i ana waiata, "It sounds simpler, the melodies are simpler the chordal structures are simpler.”

E ki ana ia e kaha manaaki tana whangai I a ia, “A lot of the time it was enjoying every minute watching him develop and grow and do stuff it was like it enriched my whole entire soul to such a different degree that nothing has ever been able to do"

Ka rangona hoki e Taimana ki te waiata dream, te waiata i tito e Hollie mōna.

"I'd always end up literally like working with him on my knee like this and when I was recording he'd come in and like 'can I do a take now' it's like yes you can do a take so I ended up capturing his voice on that song,” hei tā Smith.

Hei te Paraire ka puta te kopae waiata a Water or Gold, a, kua timata ke a Hollie ki te tuhi waiata hou mo nga kopae kaore ano kia puta.
