The project is split across seven discs, each dedicated to a different instrument: Drums, Guitar, Supersaw, Piano, Nord, Spoken Word, and Extreme Vocals.
The album includes a lot of new material, as well as covers of songs by Blur, Taylor Swift, Charli XCX, The Strokes, The Smashing Pumpkins, Tommy James and the Shondells, Life Sim, and Sia. It also includes vocal contributions from Caroline Polachek, Tommy Cash, Hannah Diamond, Cecile Believe, and Alaska Reid.
Ahead of the release, Cook has shared a seven minute 7G megamix:
Cook will also perform a livestream on August 6th, a chance for fans to see this compilation in action.
Cook is best known as the founder and head of PC Music, and has spent recent years working in creative partnerships with artists, most notably Charli XCX, for whom he was Executive Producer on her projects How I’m Feeling Now, Charli, Number 1 Angel, and Pop 2; Cook is also the Executive-Producer for Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi’s forthcoming new album, Shiver.
7G is the first new Cook release under his own name since 2019’s "Lifeline" single. Last month he released Airhorn, a five-track EP under the DJ Lifeline guise with all profits going to all proceeds to the Movement 4 Black Lives (M4BL).
