THR sat down with David to talk with David about his new album (pushed back til June), recording “Don’t You Forget About Me” as the Idol farewell song, writing and recording his upcoming album, and more.
The song he wrote with bandmates Neil Tiemann and Andy Skib, “Goodbye to the Girl” was written at his home studio in his Pjs!
On shooting the album cover:
I think visually we had more time with this record and so we were able to create more of a sonic landscape across the board. I wanted the visual aspects of this record to emphasize that. This record’s a bit more intricate. The last one everything happened so quickly — I think it was four and a half months from start to finish — so you try to conceptualize on the fly. But this time, we could really form ideas. We played a little bit more with natural lighting as far as the photography was concerned. The album art was shot by Lauren Dukoff who did Adele’s new record. She’s just incredible. What she’s able to do with natural light is mind-blowing to me. It really created a mood.
The new single “The Last Goodbye” is set to be released April 19.
