Cooper announced Hot Sass, the follow-up to her 2018 LP Window Flowers, in June and previewed the record with the video for single, “Slice Of Life.” Liz tapped Benny Yurco to produce Hot Sass. Yurco has also worked with Michael Nau, who added vocals and co-wrote the new single “Getting Closer” with Cooper.
Liz detailed the track in a statement:
“Getting Closer” is the first of a small batch of songs that I had the honor of writing with my friend Michael Nau. I met up with him under a picnic pavilion in the woods nestled away right off of the highway in Eastern Maryland. A really intense rainstorm passed through us all of a sudden, allowing simple yet complicated feelings to fall into words and into a song and memory that I love very much.
