David Cook has returned to the American Idol stage every year after he took the crown in 2008. This year will be no exception when he appears on this Thursday’s results show to perform his new single, “Laying Me Low”.
The Hollywood Reporter has a 1:23 minute clip of the song posted with a new interview, where the singer talks about his recent move to Nashville, songwriting and his future plans.
On writing “Laying Me Low” and songwriting in general:
I think stepping away from the scene and just focusing on writing and not worrying about what I’m writing and the process of writing … I don’t remember the last time I was so excited about music. To be able to be back on the Idol stage and perform this song is really different for me. I can’t even explain how, it’s new territory and it’s really exciting to kind of unveil this new chapter. I haven’t titled this chapter yet.
On future plans to release more music
The plan right now is just to put the song out and give it as much traction as it deserves. I would love to be putting a record together sooner rather than later. We’re just trying to find a home for it — whether it’s major or DIY or whatever, but I think we have a pocket of six or seven songs that are great material. I feel confident that someone is going to want to put it out.
