Jon Gomm releases music video for new song Cocoon

His first new single in 7 years.

Jon Gomm has released a new song, entitled Cocoon. Take a look at its accompanying music video above. The song is taken from his upcoming record The Faintest Idea, produced by Andy Sorenson.

Speaking about the new single in a statement, Gomm wrote: “Love and fear is a potent mix. When you love someone and feel a desperate need to keep them safe, it can make it very hard to judge risk. When you struggle with your own anxiety, your judgement is doubly untrustworthy. You see every slip they make before it happens, whether it ever really happens or not. You imagine every loss of grip your own faithless hands would tremor at, but it scares you twice as much.

Eventually, you turn into the source of risk. The hysterical monologue of your own cowering familiar becomes the thing you most need to protect them from. At best, you stifle the one you love. At worst, you make them you. If you are a cocoon for another person, remember that the most important job a cocoon has, is to break open and let the being inside it go free. So watch them take flight, feel your stomach sink as they stutter and lurch, and shut the fuck up unless they need you.”

The album arrives on 16 October via Kscope.
