David Cook – ‘This Loud Morning’ – Available for Pre-sale at Amazon

Looks like David Cook’s upcoming album This Loud Morning is now available for Pre-order on Amazon. Two versions are listed–a CD and a CD/DVD.

The official pre-order sale date for retail outlets is April 19, so I would call these offerings tentative at the moment. More details will be available on or after that date.  David was filming promo material recently, so that could be the material featured on a DVD. Possibly.

Also, in case you didn’t know–If you pre-order or have pre-ordered This Loud Morning at DavidCookOfficial.com you will receive a free download of the new single, “The Last Goodbye” when it is released on Tuesday, in addition to “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”.  Also, there could be additional premium material available eventually at DCO.

Thanks @FoolsApril64

Amazon Pre-order

  • connico479

    Tentative or not Amazon took my order to be delivered on 6/28. David is #1 in the Movers and Shakers. Yay! So excited to get a DVD finally! I am so anxious for new DC music you wouldn’t believe it!

  • leome

    I’m thinking the DVD will include a music video for the single, some album promo, maybe a making off the album. I wish it has some live performance, but not counting on it.
    I really can’t wait for the track list and what extra songs there will be.

  • Incipit

    Alrighty then! We get some extras this time – and it sounds like that “Making of” DVD – we even know who shot it – Alex Castino, who worked with David six times before, according to his Facebook page.

    He specializes in behind the scenes / documentary productions, he did the one for “Light On”, among others – and he’s been working on this since last July. It ought to be comprehensive. (((Yeah)))for extras!

    Good to know I can just upgrade my pre-order – but I want to be sure TLG free download is counted as a sale, too.

    I’m floving all these Cookie Crumbs. Indeed.

  • fadetowhite

    A video? And a deluxe release? I’m not dreaming am I? :lol

    OK – this is how nuts I am becoming at the moment – do I a) Stick to the DCO pre-order only, in the presumption that this deluxe edition will be an option down the line; b) cancel the DCO pre-order and pre-order on Amazon or c) pre-order both.

    I reckon I’ll stick with DCO at the moment and give RCA Ed a chance to get the logistics sorted out, but I’m tempted…

  • Incipit

    fadetowhite, Lisa tweeted that those who pre-ordered will have the option to upgrade…and having pre-ordered, you will be in line for any DCO exclusive goodies.

    The thing I’m watching for is Bonus tunes – if they do them this time.

  • fadetowhite

    fadetowhite, Lisa tweeted that those who pre-ordered will have the option to upgrade…and having pre-ordered, you will be in line for any DCO exclusive goodies.

    That’s OK then – I’ll wait…patiently…kind of.

  • leome

    and it sounds like that “Making of” DVD – we even know who shot it – Alex Castino, who worked with David six times before, according to his Facebook page.

    Do you know if he has anything to do with that last David vlog from the studio? I really liked the way that was done.

  • Incipit

    leome, IDK for certain sure without credits – but this is what he tweeted in March – March 23, 2011 – 11:16
    @AlexCastino: shooting David Cook rehearsals today

    and this –
    From Jokerstyle Productions Facebook wall:
    “jokerstyle productions
    working with American Idol winner David Cook today…..editing full “making of” mini documentary…”

  • pattycake

    A DVD FINALLY!!! Feels like Christmas morning!!! Glad to see so many Cookie crumbs this week. Ordered and anxiously awaiting my 7/01 expected receive date.

  • unidentified

    Well extra stuff is always good. Price is not bad either. I think I paid around $15 for David’s first CD. So yay! Happy fan here.

  • leome

    Thanks Incipit. :)
    I think it makes sense he filmed what we saw in the vlog, which makes me even more excited cause I really liked that style.

  • sylvanaire

    I only bought 1 hard copy cd on the DCO store, and as temping as it is to jump on that Amazon preorder, I think I’ll wait for tracklists for various outlets before I buy anything else.

    Still, I’m a little nervous about that requirement to have “already” pre-ordered This Loud Morning. Am I limited to just that one? Or can I increase the # of copies I want when upgrading to super deluxe editions, lol? Got to have it all!!!!

  • bridgette12

    I pre-ordered mine, can’t wait till June get’s here. Love the idea of a dvd, extra unexpected yummies.

  • http://flamingnose.blogspot.com Scott

    So proud & happy to see David debut on amazon’s “movers & shakers” at #1. http://amzn.to/eZ7tLL
    The previous hour he was “unranked” so that’s an impressive debut, just a few hours after going up for pre-orders.

    As of this writing, TLM is #35 overall on amazon. O Happy Day!

    ETA: sylvanaire, DCO mod Lisa (Foolsapril64) said all orders placed on DCO may be upgraded, and IIRC, you can place as many orders as you want. They would never limit or inhibit sales – DCO’s orders pre-orders count toward soundscan :)
    As for what’s on the DVD, I think it will be the music video for TLG plus that “behind the scenes” documentary that was shot. IIRC, Kelly’s “All I Ever Wanted” deluxe album on itunes had the “My Life Would Suck…” music video plus behind the scenes/making of the music video. Could be they’re doing something similar with David, but making it available on DVD as well as digital.

    b) cancel the DCO pre-order and pre-order on Amazon

    How is that even possible? I preordered but didn’t read the fine print actually… I already got the DYFAM download, and have been enjoying it for a while, and if I cancel my DCO preorder, it’s not like they could take back my MP3… so it seems almost unfair? Anyway, just curious. Personally I will hold tight as FoolsApril64 suggests.

    Very impressive that he’s at #1 on Movers and Shakers! Yay!

  • Keel

    Wow, that’s pretty impressive with TLM debuting #1 on movers and shakers. I tried searching for it earlier in the day on Amazon.com when I saw the tweets flying about it being available for pre-order — and it was NOT findable if you searched for “David Cook”. I went through 4 pages of “results” and the TLM pre-order wasn’t one of them. So the only people who could order where those who either used the link here on MJs OR actually searched using “This Loud Morning” on Amazon.com.

  • ladymadonna

    I just have to comment again. That album cover is freakin’ fantastic. I really love it.

  • Garnetstar

    LadyMadonna. Agreed. That cover is great and so is the title. This Loud Morning. So evocative. I feel something immediately when I read it or hear it. Now I can’t wait to hear what it sounds like.

  • ladymadonna

    This Loud Morning pre-order is now #17 at Amazon.com. (Hopefully all those orders have come through mj’s link above).

    Very fun to have something to track again.

  • leome

    I just have to comment again. That album cover is freakin’ fantastic. I really love it.

    Me too. I didn’t have any good expectations cause idol’s covers are usually meh, but this one is pretty good and something I could even have a poster of if I was 8 years younger and 18 again.

    How is that even possible?

    Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. That’s probably why they let us upgrade.

  • Incipit

    This Loud Morning is up to #14 at Amazon, which puts it on the Best Sellers page. With a green arrow saying two days on the Top 100.

    The used to be Invisible Album now has a name and cool cover art – and we even know three of the track titles, and what one of them sounds like! Not so invisible as it used to be – but still getting the pre-orders based just on demand. Flove it.

  • wordnerdarchie

    The album cover is being discussed, analyzed, dissected, probed … (you name it) over on DWoP at DCO. It’s amazing how many details are in that photo. Check it out!

  • fadetowhite

    I already got the DYFAM download, and have been enjoying it for a while, and if I cancel my DCO preorder, it’s not like they could take back my MP3… so it seems almost unfair? Anyway, just curious.

    Uh -that’s true! I hadn’t even thought of that…

    Anyway – I was only half serious.

    And I’m not a multiple buyer, unless the hard copy takes eons get to the UK (as with DCTR) and I have to download a digital version to keep me happy until it arrives. :lol

  • Garnetstar

    Wornerdarchie – thanks for the heads up. That is actually pretty interesting. DCO finds that are interesting to me:

    1. Wearing a Victorian era mouring locket with a back ribbon. I didn’t realize that was a black ribbon.
    2. Possibly wearing a mourning ring
    3. Victorian era whistle on a chain attached to his vest. I wondered what that thing was
    4. After all the talk about mourning the speakers look like
    tombstones
    5. Without some of the modern touches his outfit is a bit old west looking.

    Great finds DCO.

  • karenc

    Garnetstar:

    The other discussion on DCO I thought was interesting is about mourning/morning, but that is far more obvious than the other things discussed, even though it kind of follows the same theme.

    This is very clever if that is what David intended, and I could see him doing something like that. And if there is that much symbolism even on the title and album cover I can’t imagine how much there is in his music.

  • jumpstart

    Haven’t pre-ordered and probably won’t unless I can’t get the DVD any other way. Something about walking into the store on release day and picking it up just appeals to me. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning with all of the awesome DC news this past week. Bring it on! :)

  • karenc

    Wow, the album is still at # 15 on Amazon. That is amazing to me. It shows that he does have a big fanbase. The other thing is that most of the fans that have been really following this closely that are in the forums at DCO had preordered the album there, and RCA Ed said they had 3000 preorders within the first few days through DCO.

    So, what I’m saying is it seems since the Amazon presales are so high, that this isn’t just the online fandoms preordering, it is also some fans that are not following the online community as closely.

    I did preorder through DCO, so I’m waiting to see the options to upgrade, I would still keep the DCO order anyway, even if I ordered the Amazon one.

    They also said if we preorder through DCO, we will get the first single.

  • Keel

    1. Wearing a Victorian era mouring locket with a back ribbon. I didn’t realize that was a black ribbon.
    2. Possibly wearing a mourning ring
    3. Victorian era whistle on a chain attached to his vest. I wondered what that thing was
    4. After all the talk about mourning the speakers look like
    tombstones
    5. Without some of the modern touches his outfit is a bit old west looking.

    There’s also the lavender color theme in there. Apparently, back in Victorian times, black is what you wear when you are in “full” mourning, and lavender is what you wear when you are “half” mourning (i.e., following the first year after your loved one has passed away).

    A few things I find interesting (and not necessarily related to the “mourning” theme) is the fact that his stance has one leg out in front of the other and if you look really close at his left hand, you’ll see that he’s holding two guitar picks in between his index and middle fingers. Also, that long stalk of grass intersects with where his right hand is resting — which to me almost looks like a sword or maybe even a long gun (look at how it curves at the top). There’s something in the setting and his stance that’s very “duel at sunrise” to me. And of course, he’s looking very intently in the distance. What or who is there? If there is to be a duel at sunrise, that would certainly be a very loud morning, wouldn’t it? Very cool evocation.

  • Garnetstar

    It is cool that he is ranking high on Amazon, but from what I understand the Amazon music sales are very low, lower than iTunes and iTunes sales are not that high to begin with.

  • tierbee

    I don’t get real worked up about rankings anyway but I think it’s ok to be happy about it. I mean, he could *not* be ranked that high :)

  • MollyAnnMay

    That was interesting to read, Keel. And the stuff from DCO too, Garnetstar. Thanks for bringing it over.

    I try not to pay too much attention to sales talk because it seems like such a crapshoot for everyone these days. I’ve said before that my prediction for Cook is that he will sell at least 1 CD — to me. Heh. After that, I have no idea.

    But I admit the low sales all over the place, coupled by the inevitable (or so I’m told) drop off for people from AI is worrisome, if only because I’m not just greedy for this album — I want more after that, too. So the Amazon thing is nice, even if the actual number ends up being a drop in the bucket.

    It’ll still be an N>1. Which, yay.

  • tierbee

    I’ve said before that my prediction for Cook is that he will sell at least 1 CD — to me.

    LOL, and that is the best way to stay sane. No way to guess, really.

    Amazon is about 12% of US album sales — not huge but meaningful. More importantly, a strong Amazon presale is a good indication for overall album sales after release. It will be interesting to see what this album presale does after single promotion starts and after Idol appearance. (Current nicely placed at #25.)

    ETA: Tierbee — I will up your prediction of 1 CD to 2. :)

  • fadetowhite

    I’ve said before that my prediction for Cook is that he will sell at least 1 CD — to me. Heh. After that, I have no idea.

    Yeah :lol

    What sells and what doesn’t is just so unpredictable and it’s so easy to tie yourself in knots about it…it’s impossible to predict.

    But it’s nice to see the album getting a good start – like Tierbee said, it could have been the opposite.

  • tinawina

    It will be interesting to see what this album presale does after single promotion starts and after Idol appearance.

    Yeah, I think its more important to note how the presale does over time, it should be a rough indicator of overall interest.

    I can honestly say that I have no idea what to expect this time around saleswise. Too many variables. I know where I think he needs to end up to get to a third well funded, decently promoted album release (goldish album, lead single goes platinum, decent touring), but even that is just a wild guess. This is going to be a go with the flow kind of era for me in that sense.

    The most I hope right now is that I like the damn thing. LOL. If I don’t like the music the rest won’t mater to me anyway.

  • tierbee

    The most I hope right now is that I like the damn thing. LOL. If I don’t like the music the rest won’t mater to me anyway.

    If I don’t like the music, I’m getting drunk in the bunker…

  • SharB

    I’m not going to say anything about “hope”; I’m trusting that this album will be awesome, awe-inspiring, uplifting, etc. and that all of David’s aspirations in this project is achieved and the followers/listeners are pleased.

    I don’t care. I love David and I’m supporting anything/everything he sends my way.

  • Incipit

    The most I hope right now is that I like the damn thing. LOL.

    tinawina, I’m thinking there’s about 70 days, give or take (but who’s counting?) before I can make a full assessment on “This Loud Morning”. Snippets are frustrating as all hell, to me…and never give anything approaching a full picture of a song. With luck, there will be vids from PR appearances and other goodies, and that would be great!

    However, I do know – I’m not the target for “The Last Goodbye” – That’s the radio release, and it has a different job to do. It will be extremely cool if I like it – or even flove it..but I don’t have to. Radio PD’s and their audiences do.

    Meanwhile, I’m waiting for all the ‘Spendour in the Grass’, KWIM?

  • MollyAnnMay

    The most I hope right now is that I like the damn thing.

    Oh, that’s a hope for me too. It could be an album full of CBTMs and Souvenirs (sorry, not a fan) and then where will I be?

    But then there’s the fact that,
    a) I adore “Paper Heart”
    b) I liked the *idea* of “You and I” and thought it indicated an interesting musical direction (keyboards FTW!), even if I didn’t wholly love the song itself
    c) I liked the other song that was soundchecked at Busch Gardens quite a lot
    d) I liked the sound of the instrumentals on the teaser videos
    e) the single, while it didn’t strike an instant chord like PH, was good for me and more importantly, didn’t make me want to shove an ice pick in my ear, like most songs manufactured for mainstream radio do these days

    Plus it may sound weird, but there’s the fact that I got a lot of free entertainment from Youtube concerts during the tour.

    So yup. He gets to sell at least 1 CD and pocket my $10.99. I could spend it on worse things. And have. Heh.

  • karenc

    I think the challenge on this album was to do something that fits him musically but still be commercially viable. I think that’s why they used cowriters such as Ryan Tedder. From what I’ve heard so far, with some of the songs he’s been writing, I really like what he’s done for the new album. I like his style of songwriting, and it seems to me that even when he cowrites something, his ideas are present.

    What I’m hoping for is to have the album be successful, and that David himself was able to get what he wanted from it. And if it is sucessful, he will probably have more freedom on the next album.

  • MollyAnnMay

    If I don’t like the music, I’m getting drunk in the bunker…

    LOL tierbee, I guess that’s a reason to be careful with the cash. May need it for booze in case something goes terribly, terribly wrong music-wise and David suddenly confesses that he’s been uber-inspired by oh, I don’t know — by watching Partridge Family re-runs during the never-ending hiatus.

    (Now someone’s probably going to pop up and report that the Partridge Family sold 30 million albums.)

  • fadetowhite

    (Now someone’s probably going to pop up and report that the Partridge family sold 30 million albums.)

    Yeah – how dare you diss the Partridge Family. If all AI alums listened to them during an album hiatus, they’d all still be selling like seasons 1 to 5!

    Oh and, ITA: first and foremost, I want to like the music! The rest will follow however it follows…

  • MollyAnnMay

    Yeah – how dare you diss the Partridge Family. If all AI alums listened to them during an album hiatus, they’d all still be selling like seasons 1 to 5!

    Not to mention they’d be so popular they could bring back fringed leather jackets and feathered back hair!

    (Oh dear god, I just pictured Cook with feathered back David Cassidy hair and laughed so hard I almost choked to death.)

    (Oops. Also just realized I brought up the H word. I apologize. At least it didn’t happen till the second page of comments?)

  • tinawina

    If I don’t like the music, I’m getting drunk in the bunker…

    LMAO! That bunker will be well used no matter what happens. :D

    a) I adore “Paper Heart”
    b) I liked the *idea* of “You and I” and thought it indicated an interesting musical direction (keyboards FTW!), even if I didn’t wholly love the song itself
    c) I liked the other song that was soundchecked at Busch Gardens quite a lot
    d) I liked the sound of the instrumentals on the teaser videos

    Yeah, I’m here. Liked Paper Heart a lot, liked most of what I heard during the teaser videos, enjoyed the Busch Gardens soundchecks, intrigued by all the tidbits (children’s choir? playing guitar with scissors? sitars?). I feel nothing about the single because I just don’t do snippets. I can wait a day or 2 for the whole thing to properly judge. If I absolutely hate it I’ll still wait for the album, albeit less enthusiastically so, but nothing in the snippet made me think I’d flat out hate it. The worst that could happen is indifference. So overall I am quite hopeful, but the practical side of me says nothing’s definite so I hold out the possibility that I will hate the album when I hear it. I don’t think that will happen, but you never know!

    I would totally take him and his little bro forming a Partridge Family type band however. That could never be wrong. LOL

  • ladymadonna

    Slight non sequitor, but a fun tidbit: Looks like NBC Sports is using Cook’s Heroes again as the theme song for their Championship Season promos. It’s a really cool campaign – last year it ran every weekend through the Spring/Summer and included ads for events like The French Open, Wimbledon, Kentucky Derby, etc.

    Pretty cool that they chose Heroes again instead of going with a more current song. Another way to keep Cook’s voice front of mind through the album promo cycle. Idol boot song every Thursday, Heroes every Saturday and Sunday, and hopefully a single gaining spins on the radio. Multi-prong FTW.

  • leome

    I liked the sound of the instrumentals on the teaser videos

    I really want that song playing at the beginning of the vlog posted in January. I loved the instrumental so much.

  • tierbee

    (Oh dear god, I just pictured Cook with feathered back David Cassidy hair and laughed so hard I almost choked to death.)

    (Oops. Also just realized I brought up the H word. I apologize. At least it didn’t happen till the second page of comments?)

    Hahahaha. Oh Lord, the image of Cook with feathered hair… I can’t stop laughing!

    Looks like NBC Sports is using Cook’s Heroes again as the theme song for their Championship Season promos.

    Yay! I love “Heroes.” I have loved it since day 1 but loved it 10000x more (was that enough in the zeroes department?) ever since they played it at the beginning of the Race for Hope that first year and I got full body goosebumps. So bonus for me who “watches more sports than a dude” (TM hubby) since I watch sports whenever I can on the weekends so I’ll get to hear Cook too. Hooray! And I was listening to 94.7’s acoustic sunrise program this morning (recommend it lots – 9-11 – got acoustic Mumford & Sons! Adele!) and they had a commercial for the Concert for Hope so… yay. More Cookie, please :)

  • justic

    the single leaked. bad call on single selection mr. Cook and Management. it’s cheesy generic and so boring.
    the songs on the album teaser were so intriguing and than they release this drek…
    seriously the name david cook is becoming synonymous with awful singles.
    sad to see great talent goes to waste.

  • leome

    Boring? lmao
    I think the song is great. I really like the melody and it’s fun. I can understand people not liking it, but boring is the last word I would use to describe it. lol It’s not even long, and it makes you wanna jump.

    I love it.

  • Garnetstar

    Yep. It’s fun. I like it a lot. Everyone will have their own opinion and that’s cool. I have no clue how it will do on radio. It is really fast isn’t it. I think I hear Andy or Kyle doing the harmonies. Some interesting instrumentation going on. I like. I would like a clearer copy. Can’t wait to DL and listen in the car.

    ETA: full version has leaked. Links on twitter. People love it, People hate it. His career is over. Annnnnd scene.

  • blissful

    Has the full version leaked or is it just the snippet?

    I will be interesting how the new single tracks — so many factors to consider.

  • mon_mon

    The song is great! I want to listen to it live! It would be so fun!

  • Aileen

    Just heard it. It’s so much fun. I love it. Hopefully it’ll do well on radio! Can’t wait for David to sing it live!

  • blissful

    Fast and fun — definitely a summer song. More poppy than I expected, but if they want a chance a CHR play this is a good medium. I like it lots more than LO!

    I’m looking forward to seeing a live performance.

  • springboard

    I heard from a bad quality recording that drowns his voice, but I like it a lot!

  • MollyAnnMay

    ETA: full version has leaked. Links on twitter. People love it, People hate it. His career is over. Annnnnd scene.

    Ahahaha. And that’s my cue

    ::dives under the nearest rock::

  • Garnetstar

    It’s like an emo punk pop thing. Like Hey Monday or We the Kings or athemic happy Fall Out Boy…etc….

    It’s sooooo peppy. Not used to peppy Cook. Still a crap shoot for radio. But I am boppin around to it. And it’s a freakin ear worm. Wherever we are we’re miles apart…

  • listen

    Not what I was expecting (from the snippet), very fast beat, and I agree it is better than LO.

    I am sure it will grow on me. I think it will sound better with the volume turned up (had to keep it quite low since it is late and someone is sleeping..)

  • MollyAnnMay

    Okay, I totally caved found something under the rock.

    Huh.

    Well, it’s not a ballad.

    It’s *really* poppy. Or peppy, yeah. Peppy works.

    If the lyrics were less Cookian and more banal, I could totally hear Katy Perry singing this. (Or perhaps I should say “singing.”)

    That could be a good thing, right?

    I’m getting used to it. *g* Who knows if the leak is the final mix, but the good news is on the version I heard his voice is clear and prominent. No spin or buzz or any other crap layered on it at all.

    And I think this has the potential to rock like hell live, so yay for that!

  • Garnetstar

    And like I can sing along to it and stuff. Usually I am in awe of the voice and just like, wow dude just hit that note. But this is in his sweet spot and his voice is front and center and I think it’s Skib and Peek singing along and it just all works for some strange reason. I can’t angst about this song. It’s just so fuckin fun. Ya know? Angst pfft, what’s that? This chorus is so fun to sing along with. Bye.

  • Incipit

    full version has leaked

    Oh, crap.

    Nope. I want my Christmas morning, damnit!

    I’m ignoring. La La La La, and like that.

    *snerk* @Myself.

  • OmahaCookie

    I never open Christmas presents before Christmas morning. But man, is this getting hard! Mainly, I want to hear a good copy first. MUST RESIST.. MUST RESIST…

  • Balance

    LOL…y’all resisters are cracking me up. The release is less than 24 hours away….you can listen without downloading it…and I’m pretty sure you’re going to, or already have purchased it. Didn’t Ed say something to the effect of “we’d be more concerned if no one cared enough to leak it”?

    It’s sooooo much different than the snippet. Not at all what I expected, but I LOVE it.

    If you don’t like it peeps…sucks to be you, because I think this is going to be on your radio a lot this summer! ;)

  • Incipit

    Heh. Balance, then I’ll love it just as much on Tuesday, when I’m not listening to an mp3 pirate copy for a first impression.

    But that’s just a logical reason. Waiting has nothing to do with logic, for me.

    Everybody’s MMV, Of Course.

  • Balance

    Don’t get me wrong, Incipit…I am truly impressed with your intestinal fortitude! I resisted for a good hour…maybe even two, but then I caved. So you’re a far better woman than I!

    I promise to buy an extra copy to go along with my DCO and Amazon pre-orders. :)

  • springboard

    The backing vocals ‘oh oh oh’ remind me of KOL’s Use Somebody.

  • Keel

    It’s freakin’ earwormy fer shure. For someone who’s saying he doesn’t want to lose you or let you go, he sure sings goodbye with a lot of gusto. Heh.

    I’m liking it. A LOT.

  • MollyAnnMay

    I resisted for a good hour…maybe even two

    LOL. I lasted 20 minutes.

    I can’t angst about this song. It’s just so fuckin fun. Ya know?

    Nope, can’t angst about something I’m so happy has finally arrived. It is fun — I can totally see a crowd bouncing along to this.

  • mon_mon

    I am also liking this song a lot. My itunes counter says I have repeated it for 28 times now. I can’t wait for it to be sung on idol! I hope it doesn’t become the most requested song on radio for the guys who want to dump their girls ;) or most requested song on Valentines day!

    Is this an earworm or what?

    I’m more curious what casual music listeners/casual fans think. The fans that wanted a Bar-ba-sol/KITM type song will probably hate this because its seriously poppy.

    Well – I can’t find any damn link/leak anywhere – so I’ll have to wait. Which may be a good thing :Lol

    magic rainbows aside, i think this is the poppiest song i’ve heard cook sing. not sure how i feel about it just yet.

    it’s an earworm for sure. i can see it going at least Top 20 on pop and certainly Top 5 on HAC with a good push from RCA>

    OK – I’ve found a link…

    And, you know what, I kind of like it!

    It is very light and poppy, but not in a bad way.

    And I can definitely see it working on the radio – much more so than any of his previous records.

    So, I’m actually kind of cautiously optimistic here. Which is great! An unusual sensation after my first listen to one of DC’s singles!

    ETA: update to that – I actually really kind of like it! And I’m getting quite excited!

    Should be a lock for Top 5 HAC, CHR we’ll have to see how much they want to spend to push it. Top 20 should be possible.

    Whoever says it reminds them of KOL in the background OHs is right! I guess I like it ok, honestly after so much time I didn’t know what to expect, so any new song I’ll have to process for a while ;)

    I’m dancing along (and I don’t dance, lol!)

    I caved, I’m listening. Haha. Um, I really like it. That makes me afraid that maybe the world is ending. Maybe I should put end of the world supplies in my bunker along with my booze?

  • tierbee

    And when I acquire it on my iPod legally once it drops ;) I am totally driving around with windows down listening to this song ’cause I’m tapping my toes and singing along (though it’s more like *watermelon strawberry mumble mumble* since I don’t know the words yet).
