David Cook, an American rock singer, rose to fame after winning the seventh season of the reality television show American Idol. Recently, he released his new album This Loud Morning.
David Cook began to concentrate working on This Loud Morning after his first major tour. While on the tour, he put down some riffs and lyrical ideas, and started song-writing as a band towards the end of the tour. In an interview with Idolatry's Michael Slezak on February 8, 2010 Cook revealed that he is hard at work on his second album. He has been collaborating with many musicians. Besides that, he also collaborated with members of his band, The Anthemic Neal Tiemann and Andy Skib. He had hoped initially that a single would be ready for release in April 2010 and the album that summer. However, a producer for the album was not announced until May, and recording started in June that year with producer Matt Serletic at the helm. On March 31, 2011, Cook tweeted that the title of his new single will be The Last Goodbye and debuted on April 19, 2011. A press release was sent out on April 15, 2011 announcing the name of the album This Loud Morning and was released on June 28, 2011. He has also stated that at the beginning his goal was to make an album that "really, really pushed the concept of dynamic".
