A. G. Cook has released a new single called ‘XXoplex’, taken from his upcoming album Apple. It arrives with an accompanying music video directed by longtime PC Music collaborator Timothy Luke. Check it out below.
The electronic producer describes ‘XXoplex’ as the “dark, industrial heart” of the album. “As I’ve spent more time with the track over the years, I’ve started to enjoy its softer side, a silliness, a sense that anything could happen,” he explains. “As Newton’s law of EDM gravitation states, every track is bound to drop at some point.”
Along with the new track, Cook has also announced a new virtual livestream event called Appleville. It’s set to take place on September 12th and will feature appearances from Cook, Charli XCX, 100 gecs, Clairo, and more. It will be open for all, but if you purchase a Golden Ticket (via Bandcamp), you’ll get access to the “moshpit” as well as downloadable recordings of the concert and other exclusive music. All proceeds will be donated to Mermaids and Black Cultural Archives.
Just last month, A. G. Cook released his massive, 49-track septuple album 7G. His upcoming album, which also includes the previously unveiled single ‘Oh Yeah’, will arrive on September 18th.
