David Cook Releases His New CD.


David Cook fans have much to celebrate. Today, November 18th 2008, David Cook’s much-anticipated CD was released to enormous acclaim.

According to the Los Angeles Times

Cook has taken it (rock) further, not only competing on “Idol” with songs by Our Lady Peace and Collective Soul, but also enlisting a focused list of co-writers for his album, including Maida and his wife, Chantal Kreviazuk; Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls; Better Than Ezra’s Kevin Griffin; Nixons founder Zac Maloy and Atlanta hard rockers Injected.

Additionally, David, himself, added

“I think the collaborations I’ve been able to do just made this record,” said Cook. “I just tried really hard to hold my own and not come across as some kid awe-struck with fear.”

He further stated that:

“I purposely tried to be a storyteller on this particular song,” said Cook of “Permanent,” which features a spare production highlighted by piano and strings. “I made it known what I was talking about. But it’s still written in a way that people can take what they want out of it.”

One of my readers, CookieMonster, wrote a comment in another blog topic here and stated that “you really must listen to “Permanent”. You will absolutely love it! So much passion. It is really powerful and it makes me cry”. I hope that others will join in this Masterclass celebration of David Cook and add some lively commentary to this blog.

Having watched David throughout American Idol Season 7 and, then, viewing his live performance in Toronto, Ontario Canada, there is no doubt in my mind that this young man’s career holds endless possibilities for successful advancement.

He is like a chameleon – he wears a musical coat of many colors. Although he is a certifiable rock musician, one only needs to listen to his heart-rending full-length recording of “Music Of The Night” from “Phantom Of The Opera” to know that this exceptional artist is capable of many genres outside of rock music. He is a very intelligent, self-aware individual but, more, important, he is sublimely musical and knows where he wants to take his illustrious career.

David Cook will move far and beyond the stage of American Idol, but mark my words, his genuine and sincere nature will never allow him to forget where he got his start.

So, to David and all of his fans – and I count myself one of many – congratulations on the success of this CD. At this moment, his CD sits at the #1 sales spot on Amazon.Com. Excellent!

And, for those of you who have yet to purchase this CD, well – what’s the hold-up? Click here to order a hard copy from Amazon.Com or, if you live in the United States, you can download his album from Amazon.Com’s MP3 Site. And, of course, ITunes.Com is international, so go nuts!
