Young Guv Shares New Single “Cry 2 Sleep”
Young Guv returns with his new album GUV IV, the full-length drops June 24th from Run For Cover Records and Hand Drawn Dracula (Canada). The long-running project that’s allowed Cook (vocalist of No Warning and former guitarist of Fucked Up) to explore countless different sounds–from first wave punk to ’80s influenced R&B and beyond–and the one constant has always been his infallible knack for writing earworm hooks. Written in the high desert of Taos, New Mexico, where Cook and his band holed up at the start of 2020, both GUV III and GUV IV tap into physical and mental isolation to explore the unshakeable pull of human connection and the rejuvenating power of finding love in others and one’s self.
After tracking in Los Angeles, he decamped to Mexico — old Mexico — where the healing process has taken yet another surprising turn: “I’m taking a complete break from music,” he says. “I haven’t picked up a guitar since the record wrapped. I’m learning Spanish and boxing.”
