Listen to the interview:
- David Cook – ABC News Radio
Not included in the recorded portion of the interview is some information about the upcoming tour:
“I just think there’s something inherently fun about throwing in some surprises during the set, and we only have one record out, so there’s not gonna be that many surprises if we don’t throw in some covers. So we’ve talked about throwing in some covers and throwing in some stuff from pre-Idol, maybe some Kings stuff, maybe some Analog Heart stuff, so we’ll have plenty to play.”
David says he couldn’t be happier with how the record turned out, and that he made an eclectic album to show that he can do different things. He wrote the songs keeping in mind that he’ll be playing them live later. He plans to go out on tour with a “big bombastic live show.”
He called the songwriting experience humbling. Writing with experienced songwriters like Raine Maida taught him to write songs in a more honest and direct way.
David tells the story behind the little “smile” on Leno while he was singing “Light On”–a song, that immediately grabbed David when he first heard it a few weeks after the finale.
David wants to name the next record, Another Idol Record – Two and a Half Stars Heh. He says his fans are “amazing.”
