Will Joseph Cook makes music that will put a smile on your face. The indie-pop dreamer's third album, Every Single Thing, is an exercise in joy: a collection of unashamed love songs, it's a bubbling and exuberant reminder to cherish the present. On Every Single Thing, Will Joseph Cook finds inspiration in the tradition of writing songs for and with someone special in mind in the style of old school crooners like Chet Baker or Elvis Presley.
Written with friend Eric Radloff, who released music as Okudaxij, and LA-based writer-producer Matt Parad, he started work on the album in early 2021. "At first we were working remotely on a painfully slow countryside internet connection," he remembers. "We sent each other stems and ideas and the first few tunes came together like that. Then it was just a case of finding a way to meet somewhere." That place ended up being Mexico - and then the US.
Will Joseph Cook's third album follows his 2020 sophomore Something To Feel Good About, which featured viral smash "Be Around Me" - the song found huge success on TikTok where 1.2 million videos were made with the sound - and his 2017 debut Sweet Dreamer.
