David Cook Premieres New Music Video, Appears on Idol

Read the press release announcing David Cook’s appearance on Idol Tuesday to sing the boot song, “Don’t You Forget About Me” and the debut of “The Last Goodbye” music video on iTunes Monday May 23.

Also, EW has a first look at the new video.  The plot revolves around David going missing, and the band fearing that something bad has happened to him. The whole time, David is oblivious:

In the preview shot above, Cook discovers a newspaper that contains the headline “David Cook Feared Drowned, ” a prop he was particularly proud of. “I’m going to frame it and hang it in the house, ” he said. “It’s probably one of the best perks or gifts I’ve ever gotten from this whole experience.”

Press release excerpt:

(New York – NY) David Cook will be premiering the new music video for his first single “The Last Goodbye” on iTunes on May 23rd. The video was directed by the acclaimed and award winning Nigel Dick (Britney Spears, Oasis, Nickelback, etc.) and shot in Malibu earlier this month.

Also on May 24th, Cook will return to the American Idol stage for a live performance of “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”. Earlier this year Cook recorded this as the farewell song for the 10th season of American Idol, which has been heard every week this season. The song, chosen by American Idol creator and Executive Producer Simon Fuller, is a remake of Simple Minds 1985 smash “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”. Cook has already graced the American Idol stage once this season when he debuted “The Last Goodbye” last month to rave reviews and stellar fanfare.

Cook will be releasing his sophomore album, This Loud Morning (19 Recordings/RCA Records), on June 28th. This Loud Morning is currently available for pre-sale at DavidCookOfficial.com and other digital retailers.

Executive produced by Matt Serletic (Rob Thomas, Matchbox Twenty, Collective Soul), This Loud Morning features tracks written and co-written by Cook along with many acclaimed songwriters including, David Hodges, Ryan Tedder, Kevin Griffin and Marti Frederiksen.
