corook is celebrating her 28th birthday with her first single of the new year, “the dog”. The bittersweet track finds the self-described “singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and huge f*ckin dork” musing over who would get the dog if she and her girlfriend broke up. It is accompanied by a heartbreakingly beautiful music video, starring corook and her actual girlfriend. Watch it now below.
“Two years ago on my girlfriend’s birthday I offered to buy her a cat,” explains corook. “She immediately asked ‘Why not a dog?’ I explained that we had spoken about how our house didn’t have enough space and we both were iffy on whether that was a commitment we wanted to make. We decided to go to the shelter and play with some animals for her birthday but instead we left with our dog, Cubby. This song is an exaggeration of the ‘What if we break up question?’ through the lens of who would take the dog.”
“the dog” follows recent releases including the “soft and vulnerable”, “realistic,” and her incredible cover of Fountains of Wayne’s classic, “Stacy’s Mom,” delivered through her refreshing and uniquely queer perspective. The new single marks the beginning of an exciting new year of new music from corook. Stay tuned for more.
