Will Joseph Cook takes on the futility of modern life with new track 'The Dragon'

Will Joseph Cook has dropped a brand new single - and it's pretty damn timely, considering 'current events'.

Titled 'The Dragon', it takes a look at - press release quote ahoy - "a generation’s struggle to digest and respond to the current political climate, and arrives ahead of the Global Climate Strike."

“'The Dragon' is pointing at our collective apathy and inaction towards the biggest problems in our world,” says Will. “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,” he explains. “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.”

So there we go.

It follows up on his recent single 'Hey Brother' as his first new material since 2017. You can check out the video for 'The Dragon' below.
