David Cook begins interviews today with radio stations to promote his new single “Light On” and his upcoming self-titled album due to drop on November 18.
David is conducting interviews from NYC where he is currently mastering his record. He finished tracking the record on Thursday–all that’s left now are the finishing touches.
Promising an eclectic mix of both “heavy” and “delicate” songs on the album, David says that he attempted to write songs that “forced the label’s hand”–songs so good that the label felt they had to go on the record.
The lineup for David’s touring band includes Neil Tiemann and Andy Skib (Midwest Kings) and two more bandmates –Kyle and Joey (this guy)–chosen through the audition process.
The video for “Light On” will be shot at the end of this week. Wayne Isham (Motley Crue, Metallica, Britney Spears, Gavin DeGraw) has been tapped to direct.
