PC Music founder and producer A.G. Cook has been quiet since collaborating with Life Sim on the Xtreme Mixology Mix last September. But today, Cook returns with another signature dense, chaotic arrangement in the form of one-off single “Superstar.” It’s at first a bubbly, piano-driven mid-tempo ballad, but it slowly builds into a heavily synth-layered electro anthem about having a partner that makes you feel like a million bucks. The song was initially meant for Zedd but was rejected to Cook’s bewilderment.
Originally started working on Superstar over 2 years ago as a topline pitch for Zedd. Sang the demo myself, nooo idea why it got rejected :P

That rejection was a blessing in disguise because Cook should have kept this for himself in the first place. Accompanied with single art by Hannah Diamond, this came out great. Listen.
