2020’s “been an extreme year to do anything,” he says. For most of us, that means reading a few more books or baking more bread. For Cook, that means producing albums for Charli XCX
and Jónsi, performing in Minecraft concerts and Apple Guild’s Battle of the Bands, releasing the heptagonal behemoth, 7G
, a seven-disc, 49-track ode to all things Cook, and a couple of weeks later releasing Apple

and traverse the limitless soundscape of pop.
