Will Joseph Cook has signalled his return with the release of his brand new single ‘Driverless Cars’.
This is Cook‘s first release since last September’s ‘The Dragon’ as he continues to tease his follow up record to 2017 effort Sweet Dreamer.
“‘Driverless Cars’ was a very dumb, literal way of trying to express a lack of control and clear direction in my life,” says Cook. “Surrendering to the fact that a lot of what happens to us is out of our control. For me at least, that was a really uncomfortable and difficult thing to process.
“I wrote ‘Driverless Cars’ after a late-night walk, the title lyric kind of just popped out when I was singing the melody. It made me laugh because it was such a contemporary way of describing a very contemporary feeling. Plus, it has a ‘trying to be deep’ stoner energy to it which is always entertaining, I wanted to reflect that in the video.
“The video follows an unpredictably surreal night with friends, dodging interactions with an ominous beast. He represented the anxiety that uncertainty can bring, but it’s all good because we never let him join the party. It was also a perfect excuse to finally buy the tiny car of my dreams.”
