Published Jun 18, 2019Fucked Up dude Ben Cook is returning to his Young Guv project for a new album. Called GUV I, the new record will arrive on August 2 via Run for Cover.
The album is described as "a collection of staggeringly poignant and infectious pop music," and you can get a taste of that with with the newly revealed teaser track "Every Flower I See," which has arrived complete with a new video.
"Flowers have been a powerful and prominent symbol in my life for as long as I can remember," Cook said of the song in a statement. "When I was young, my mom moved me and my little brother back to Toronto from the U.K. where she found a job working with plants and flowers in the back of a newspaper. She worked long hours there, but also somehow managed to keep an immaculate and beautiful garden of her own while raising us by herself."
Check out "Every Flower I See" for yourself below.
