UPDATE: Sony is pulling the videos. I wonder what that means?
David Cook and the Anthemic sang a brand-new song called “Paper Heart” tonight in concert at Busch Gardens in Willimsburg, VA.
David is currently hard at work on his second post-Idol studio album, and after he sang the song, he asked the crowd, “Maybe we should put that one on the record…”
The song is super catchy with great guitar hooks. I highly advise watching the vid, after the jump. I’m liking it. How ’bout you?
David and the band will be back at Busch Gardens Sunday night for a second concert. They sound checked another new song Saturday afternoon. Perhaps they’ll unveil it Sunday? Let’s hope so!
UPDATE: David mentioned “Paper Heart” in an 4/12/10 interview with Michael Slezak:
“I actually worked on a few songs now with a couple guys from the UK: Jim Irvin and Julian Emery. We did a song called “Paper Heart” and one called “We Believe.” And we just finished a song yesterday called “Alibi.”
The choruses on all those songs are massive. They’re just massive choruses. And I will say they have pushed me vocally on these demos more than probably anybody else has. I’m definitely hitting high register on the choruses. The choruses are very open, very U2-esque, and the vocals are just up there, which pushes the intensity of them a little bit.”
