Young Guv, aka songwriter Ben Cook, is gearing up for the release of his new double album, GUV III & IV, and the first installment, GUV III (Run For Cover), is due out next week, March 11th. Today he’s sharing one more early peek at the album with its final single “Take Up All My Time.”
“Take Up All My Time” is the fifth single from GUV III (following “Good Time,” “Only Wanna See U Tonight,” “Lo Lo Lonely,” and “It’s Only Dancin’,” which have garnered attention from the likes of Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, Uproxx, Raven Sings The Blues, and more), demonstrating Cook’s seemingly endless supply of big hooks and chiming guitars. The new song leans towards Guv’s melancholy side but the shimmering guitar washes and longing harmonies will still put a smile on your face. It’s the kind of instantly gratifying songwriting that makes GUV III the perfect entry point for both new listeners and those already initiated into the wide world of Guv.
