Will Joseph Cook shares new track 'The Dragon'

After returning earlier this year with his fantastic comeback single 'Hey Brother', Will Joseph Cook is back once again with another socially-aware release.

The new single 'The Dragon' sees the frontman focusing on the complicated topics of politics and climate change, and comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Will Hooper.

Speaking about his new release, he said, "'The Dragon' is pointing at our collective apathy and inaction towards the biggest problems in our world. I’m singing about that personal feeling of helplessness, knowing that none of these problems can be solved by an individual alone. Living with that knowledge can be difficult. The change needs to be huge and systemic, and that’s almost as overwhelming as the problems themselves."

"The song is about striving to stay positive and loving. Whilst living in the shadow of several huge global problems like the climate and political unrest. Turning on each other distracts us from finding the real solutions. My generation is hyper focused on it but at the same time generally speaking no one can do anything about it and we're in a powerless position."
