Get ready to be hit by all the wholesome, festive feels!
UK singer-songwriter Will Joseph Cook has given us all the feels ahead of the festive season, with his new single No Time To Be Alone. The release arrives alongside an official visual, directed by actor, filmmaker and YouTuber, Bertie Gilbert.
The intimate track highlights the musicians tender vocals and storytelling lyricism, as he documents the love shared between two people on Christmas eve and the joys of being together. Channelling the jazzy seasonal standards we all grew up with, Cook's nostalgic and wholesome vocal performance feels like a warm Christmas hug wrapping itself around you, as you settle in to enjoy all the wonders of the festive season.
Speaking of the track, the musician shares: “The kind of music I grew up with at Christmas was always from old school crooners like Sinatra or 50’s jazz artists like Chet Baker and Billie Holiday. I’m not jazz-trained and would never claim this is a jazz song, but that world definitely informed a lot of the chords and vocal delivery on it. To me, that’s what Christmas sounds like. All get-togethers were canceled last year, so it felt nice to write about how different this December will be. Definitely being around someone you love makes the winter holidays 100x better. It’s very wholesome, DONT BE MAD <3”
Last year, the musician released his sophomore album, Something to Feel Good About, via his own label, The Vertex. The record spwaned the hit single, Be Around Me, which earned Cook a legion of new fans following viral success on TikTok. Throughout his career, he has taken to the stage at festivals including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, and Corona Capital in Mexico and has amassed over 120 million streams worldwide across all platforms
