Will Joseph Cook has just dropped a new single, ‘MF BASSLINE’, explaining that it’s an exploration of his inner negativity.
Speaking of the track, Cook said: “’MF BASSLINE’ is about giving my inner negativity a voice. In the past I always felt uncomfortable indulging that rawness but I’ve learnt that bottling it up only seems to make it worse. For me music is the best way to release all those sticky destructive thoughts. When a beat really rips it can totally transform your emotions into something euphoric. Hopefully someone who’s struggling feels seen by the lyrics and the track helps them air out their issues a bit.”
The single is accompanied by a video directed by Rob Savage.
The release of ‘MF BASSLINE’ comes ahead of Cook’s upcoming tour dates, which will see him visiting Mexico, Europe and the USA.
The tour will kick off with a performance at Pal Norte Festival in Monterrey, Mexico, before heading to cities including Houston, Dallas, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Chicago, Toronto, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cologne, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham and London.
