Will Joseph Cook returns with new single '4AM'

After capping off last year with his warming Christmas cut 'No Time To Be Alone', Will Joseph Cook is looking to kick off his 2022 in style with a brand new single.

The new track '4AM' is described as a "wistful, brooding ode to a late-night call to a lover", and comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, shot in Malaga and directed by frequent collaborator Bertie Gilbert.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “Conceptually 4AM is this really overly poetic voicemail for someone you love. A rush of emotions you want to share but there’s no one up to hear them. I had initially written the verse as an acapella and then at home one night I built up the big instrumental chorus. It wasn’t until I was actually recording some new music in Mexico that the track fully came to life. I was literally wide awake at 4am sending voice notes and those feelings gave me the rest of the song. I recorded so many sounds of the city from my apartment window that night - they’re all buried under the instruments.”

While adding about the new video, “We shot the video in Andalusia, Spain. The landscapes there are so beautiful and varied that you can capture so many different vibes across an hour’s drive. I actually did almost all the location scouting on google earth, trying to find little hidden gems. There was this mountain helicopter pad existing right next to the ruins of a 1700s mansion house, a towering pastel coloured factory facing a beautiful beach/ocean view - so many interesting places. The song is a bit of an emotional whiplash and has this duality to it, all the spots we filmed in felt like that to me.”
