PC Music founder and head A. G. Cook has released “Lifeline,” his first solo single since the release of his 2016 standalone “Superstar.” A bass-heavy, downtempo track, “Lifeline” features backup vocals from Cook’s longstanding collaborator Caroline Polachek, whose debut solo album Pang was co-produced by him.

"The melody at the core of “Lifeline” is this repetitive, insistent and slightly selfish earworm that I've been living with for too long now,” Cook says in a statement. "In the end, the easiest way to deal with it was to leave it in a warm petri dish and let it do its own thing. A few years later I found myself with this young, unstable song, and somehow nurtured it to become a power ballad. The track has a life of its own, but like most children and laboratory experiments, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.”
