Innovative artist and funk guitarist Cory Wong has released a captivating studio video for “Cosmic Sans” featuring rising UK musician and producer Tom Misch. Cory Wong said of the partnership, “Tom and I have been aware of each other’s music for quite a while but hadn’t had a chance to interact until he was hanging in L.A. for a week doing some writing and creative exploration. We hung out just as a couple of guitar players who wanted to jam. I had a couple chord progressions and grooves I was messing with the day before, so we started jamming on it over a drum loop. We put a song form together and recorded it. I took the guitar parts and started putting some of my production on it; adding other instruments and shaping the sound; and it turned out to be a real banger!”
The track is featured on Cory’s third studio album, ‘Motivational Music for the Syncopated Soul,’ set for release August 2nd. Listen to the track now below.
Cory recently announced three special performances with the world-renowned Metropole Orkest. The Grammy-Winning orchestra will be led by Vince Mendoza with special guest Cody Fry. It’s sure to be a unique performance like fans of Cory Wong have never seen before.

The producer, composer, arranger, and collaborator is well-known worldwide for selling out shows, and has made numerous appearances joining Stay Human, the house band for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert led by Jon Batiste.
