After surprise-releasing the first half of Something To Feel Good About last month, Will Joseph Cook has returned with "DOWNDOWNDOWN!".

He says of the new outing, "I wrote this about the first time hooking up with someone after a bad break up. Sounds kind of crass but the lyric “cos I’m down down down” is a play on words about being DTF but also heartbroken. It explores that feeling of disassociating with your actions/surroundings when everything’s raw and unprocessed. It feels like some new territory for me musically, I haven’t ever written about an experience like this before."

Something To Feel Good About will follow on from Cook's 2017 debut LP Sweet Dreamer.

The forthcoming album was written and recorded in LA. He says of the album, "One of the themes of the record is living an optimistic and loving lifestyle in the shadow of either something big and existential that everyone's feeling, or just personal worries you're struggling with."

Cook continues, "I can communicate with music better than I did before. I knew what sounded good, and what I liked to do melodically, but then in terms of something with an emotional connection, that's happened more on this album. Releasing through my own label Bad Hotel has also been really exciting, it's definitely opened a lot of doors to more creativity and self-expression."

"DOWNDOWNDOWN!" is out now. Will Joseph Cook's second LP Something To Feel Good About will arrive via Bad Hotel on 27 November, and is available to pre-order now.
