Listen: Will Joseph Cook's new song 'Be Around Me'.

Will Joseph Cook has released a new song, 'Be Around Me', which is the opening track from his upcoming second album, 'Something To Feel Good About' (out on November 27th), and arrives accompanied by a music video directed by Wes Anderson-influenced short filmmaker, actor, and Youtuber Bertie Gilbert.

About his new song, Cook says: "The song is about those moments when you’re teetering on the edge of falling for someone, the transition between playing it cool and showing vulnerability. I wanted it to be flirty but still have these bouts of nervous energy jumping out. The initial spark for the tune came from a craving to write something really pacey. So I cranked the BPM to 165 which very literally gave it this really frenetic flow. Basically for me, it sounds like how falling for someone feels."
