Will Joseph Cook looks at the bigger picture on new single "The Dragon"

19 September 2019, 10:03 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Will Joseph Cook has returned with new single "The Dragon", which sees him trying to draw attention to two of the bigger problems in the world - politics and climate change.

"The Dragon" is Cook's first offering since July's "Hey Brother", and arrives with a brilliant visual directed by Will Hooper (IDLES, APRE, Marika Hackman).

Discussing the importance of the topics raised in his new song, Cook explains, ""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."

He adds, "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."

Will Joseph Cook's new single "The Dragon" is out now.
