Dish on David Cook Album

at . Comments

What will the first David Cook album be about? Let's ask the American Idol winner himself!

“It’ll probably be a rock record. I just want to make a record that’s going to make the hair on your neck stand up. Even if it doesn’t do well commercially, as long as I can put out a record I am proud of, that’s the goal right now. And hopefully the success will follow.”

Will you buy a David Cook album?

** Update: We hear the album is set for a fall 2008 release. Said Tom Corson, Executive Vice President and General Manager, RCA Music Group:

"David Cook is an extraordinarily versatile and talented artist with an impressive sense of musicality. He is a natural performer and a true star. We are thrilled to welcome him into our family.”

I just love listening to David Cook (and looking at him too, by the way!) I hope he does
all kinds of stuff on his future tours and CDs. I have tickets to see him in Tulsa with the AMI tour. I can hardly wait. I am an older fan so I ordered a Cougars for Cook t-shirt to wear. I got tickets for my two daughters to go with me and my biggest fear is that my younger daughter's due date is only a month after the concert date. I hope she doesn't get too excited at the concert and go into labor early. We'll just not be able to go to the hospital until after David sings. Sorry, honey. (just kidding - we'll just have to take David with us ha ha)


He is a rock star...


While I do love David's harder stuff, (it's what truly made him unique and helped him win Idol over the bland & commercial fare otherwise presented), every time he slowed things down ("Hello", "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", "Always Be My Baby", which incidentally actually did THE IMPOSSIBLE - made me LIKE a Mariah Cary song!) he moved me almost to tears, and really got my attention...The "David Cook Idol Itunes Mix" I made to listen to in the interim until the Album drops is just that - a mix of everything he did, and a GOOD mix will sell LOTS of CD...of course, he could sing a diner menu and I would buy it...I cannot WAIT to buy this CD...


Yes, he has to put out a rock album first! That is the image that he created on American Idol, and I think it will sell big. I hope he doesn't just stay solely in the rock catagory though, because he can sing just about anything. Rock On!
