Will Joseph Cook unveils new single 'Driverless Cars'

After returning last year to share the pair of standalone singles ‘The Dragon’ and ‘Hey Brother’, Will Joseph Cook is now back to unveil his first piece of new material in 2020.

The new track 'Driverless Cars' was premiered on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show last night (20th May), and is accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Bad Hotel.

Speaking about his new offering, Will said, “‘Driverless Cars’ was a very dumb, literal way of trying to express a lack of control and clear direction in my life. 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.”
