  1. ahhhhhhhhhh OSOD sounds awesome!!! cant wait!!!

    Though this vid pisses me off… maybe its just on his site.. but i have to keep stopping and starting it because it gets choppy like every 15 seconds…. >:(

  2. Loving the Other Side of Down!! Is it October 5th yet? Can’t wait!!

  3. lol at elevator apparently being about management… (i havent got to that point in the vid but thats what others have said)

  4. omgosh!!!!!!

    I LOVE TOSOD! AND ELEVATOR AS WELL….. ha want more and lol
    the vid is jerky!

  5. lol at elevator apparently being about management… (i havent got to that point in the vid but thats what others have said)

    David has already said that Elevator is about a dream he had. In the clip, he said that he had the dream at a time when he was looking for new management and had to decide who to go with. Who’d have thought that deciding what floor to stop on would be a metaphor for deciding which management team to go with? Cool. I wonder when he decided to change management? I know that he told Ryan Seacrest shortly after he sang Imagine on Idol that his dad was no longer part of his management team. Not sure when he left Azoff. Wonder why he left? Wonder who he is with now?

  6. What a genius concept, such a personal touch of David just being David. Loved the sound of TOSOD and already loved Elevator.

  7. I love, love, love the sound of TOSOD! Can’t really wait for the album!!!!! Brlliant song david!!!!! Aaaaaahhhhhh, im so excited #%^*+%dgguhcvbfzstjcbnkfvnvnmjbxvnhffj#^^+#€~*%%*+%#}!!!

    Thanks mj for posting! Woot!

  8. How can he not have a management? That just sounds impossible. Especially when he’s promoting a single and soon releasing an album.

    That clip sounded good. I liked what I heard. It had a nice beat.

  9. I love TOSOD. I think this is going to be a very interesting and good album. He really is a one of kind artist. Also I wonder what is going on with his management?

  10. I adore those clips! TOSOD caught me at first listen. I was lukewarm, I guess, to Elevator, until I’d listened a few times. Now it’s a favorite. Love the vibe I’ve heard so far from this album. So excited!!!

  11. There’s a mis-communication going on here, lol. The way I understood it was that David had a dream about choosing his management when he wrote Elevator.

    He did mention on the radio program that his dad wasn’t a part of his management anymore, not that he changed his management comp.

    Anyway, I’m obsessed with the little bit of TOSOD that I heard, lol.

    *cough Go Rafa!*cough*

  12. Wish I could hear this – still breaking up in parts. But I’ll be patient and catch the behind the scenes stories later. Liking the idea of letting the fans in on the writing process. Methinks it’s fascinating!

  13. he hasnt been with azoff. I think we heard from someone they were redirecting mail or things for managment because he wasnt with azoff anymore, and i think thats how we found out he wasnt with them anymore either. He’s been meeting with managers trying to find one the past few months i think.

    This is like the first time he’s even mentioned management at all since talking with ryan. we still dont know who he has, or if he does. i dunno.

    EITHER WAY, i am excited for the album!

  14. greetings from the beach – i like the sound of the other side of down – a lot, lol….

  15. I like the sound of OSOD more than the other songs I’ve heard. He sounds a little more playful, expressive with his voice, also, which I really like to see. The album tour is a great idea, hearing his insights on the songs.

  16. Love Elevator but based on the 30 secs snippet, I think TOSOD is the bomb. Love it… a lot

  17. Like the idea of the album tour and hearing more about the background of the songs. Really excited about TOSOD. Have enjoyed all the new songs I’ve heard so far.

  18. Pretty good song clips. Its interesting how eclectic his album seems to be, but I like the mix of the songs that I have heard so far..definitely getting one…..Now Im ready and eagerly awaiting for the other David to make his announcement!….c’mon Cook!

  19. I’m really loving the title track!! I love hearing how all of the songs came about in David’s own words. I can’t wait to hear the whole CD!!

  20. I’m very happy too with the little preview of TOSOD ,his voice sound amazing , i hope the all track gonna be great, i love too to hear is a Nashville writers/Joy williams collaboration, i can’t wait to hear the complete studio version :)
    so far 4 of 5 and waiting for nice surprises with the others 8 songs we don’t hear yet ;)

  21. RV65, it is an interesting mix, and so far I like what I hear.
    Much removed from the first album, which I liked, it showcased his vocals. Curious as to the rest of the album. Appears it will surprise more than a few people.

  22. What is that sound in the video? A lawn mower?? LOL David cracks me up!

    .. from vlogs that look like something out of the blair witch project.. ie dark.. up close images to jumpy visuals.. and now these killer lawn mowers.. i hope he does a vlog in traffic. i think that would be hilarious and entertaining. :)

    SONGS!! I instantly fell in love with Elevator and it’s exactly what David describes.. it’s a song that is in its’ own little happy world. (Elevator and Waiting For Yesterday are two songs that i’m obsessed w/ in a happy way.) TOSOD.. freaking amazing! From that tiny clip, it sounds incredible… beautifuly sung and crazy smooth.

    I hope David releases multiple singles and makes a crazy fun video for Elevator. Wouldn’t a multi single release concept create mega buzz for an upcoming tour? If Rhianna can release 10 songs, why can’t David release 2? I say go for it!

    I can’t wait for this album! Thank you for posting the video MJ!

  23. I really like this “tour of the album” idea, and am really liking what I’m hearing so far of this album.

  24. I’m liking Elevator better, not a fan at first. I can see how it would fit into the current music scene. Either way, I’m definately buying the album!

  25. I hope David releases multiple singles and makes a crazy fun video for Elevator.

    “Elevator” could be turned into a really cool video. I think it could be epic!

  26. Great idea to explain each song. I LOVE the TOSOD clip. LOVE IT. This album is going to be amazing.

  27. Great idea to explain each song. I LOVE the TOSOD clip. LOVE IT.

    I agree!

    I hope David releases multiple singles and makes a crazy fun video for Elevator. Wouldn’t a multi single release concept create mega buzz for an upcoming tour? If Rhianna can release 10 songs, why can’t David release 2? I say go for it!

    I like this idea and i don’t feel ‘Elevator’ song, but i always said that a video can be very creative and help the songs to gain fans ;)

  28. TOSOD really is a great song. Really anxious to hear the rest. Nice job so far David.

  29. Love what I’m hearing so far. Can’t wait for the rest of the album….
