Finally! David Cook’s new single, “Light On” is available for preview at the AOL Popeater blog, right HERE.
While I was hoping for more Foo Fighters and less Hinder in David Cook’s debut single–not a fan of the Rock Power Ballad–I think the song is destined to be a radio hit. I’m not digging the minor-key verse, but when the song opens up in the chorus it’s got a hook that’s big, sweeping, romantic. As always, Cook’s vocals are spot-on.
The song should do particularly well in the Hot Adult Contemporary and Adult Contemporary formats where Rock Ballads reign supreme. Daughtry is a huge hit in those formats, and I think David Cook could be as well.
The song was produced by Grammy-winning producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Kid Rock) and is scheduled for iTunes release on 9/30.
