A. G. Cook has dropped a new track, ‘Lifeline’.
His first new solo song since 2016’s single ‘Superstar’, the accompanying blurb explains that it’s “the first track of a raft of new PC Music material to be announced shortly”.
“The melody at the core of Lifeline is this repetitive, insistent and slightly selfish earworm that I’ve been living with for too long now,” Cook explains. “In the end, the easiest way to deal with it was to leave it in a warm petri dish and let it do its own thing. A few years later I found myself with this young, unstable song, and somehow nurtured it to become a power ballad. The track has a life of its own, but like most children and laboratory experiments, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
The song features backing vocals from Caroline Polachek, too. Have a listen below.
