A.G. Cook has announced his forthcoming LP ‘Britpop’ and has shared a new single, which features vocals by Charli XCX.

The album’s title track features XCX singing “Brit, Brit, Brit / Like Britpop” over a whimsical, pulsing beat. The song received its live debut at XCX’s Boiler Room event in New York City last Thursday (February 22).

Cook – producer and founder of P.C. Music – confirmed that his third solo album ‘Britpop’ is set for release on May 10 via Cook’s New Alias label. You can pre-order the LP here.


According to a press release, the album is “a three-part, 24-song odyssey through Cook’s weird, wonderful, and wildly eclectic sonic universe, the record spans the full breadth of his agenda setting, genre bending vision of pop.”

The album will be split into three chapters: ‘Past’, ‘Present’, and ‘Future’. ‘Past’ will consist of Cook’s classic electronic style while ‘Present’ sees him channel the 90s Britpop genre in its traditional sense. The final chapter, ‘Future’ will consist of “his own distinctive understanding of what the future of music really means.”

‘Britpop’ was created during the COVID lockdown when Cook found himself as the only British person living in a small town in Montana. The album was written as he finished working on his prior solo LP’s ‘Apple‘ and ‘7G‘ which were both released in 2020.

Cook recently released ‘Silver Thread Golden Needle’ a nearly 10-minute long track that features sputtering and buzzing sounds against a pop beat.

Last year, he teamed up with producer Easylife and Thyslaughter to release their joint album ‘Softrock’.


The LP featured contributions from the likes of Caroline PolachekWolf Alice frontwoman Ellie RowsellCharli XCXAlaska Reid, and the late SOPHIE.
