Listen to a full stream of David Cook’s upcoming album, Digital Vein. The American Idol season 7 winner spoke with People magazine about the upcoming record, out tomorrow, September 18. The album is the singer’s first since 2011’s This Loud Morning. Check out an excerpt from the interview below.
You produced the majority of the songs on Digital Vein yourself. How does this album represent your evolution as an artist?

Diving in headfirst into the songwriting scene – writing for myself and other artists – has opened me up a bit. To get to write across genres and try new things keeps it fresh.
Your headlining tour kicks off on Sept. 30. What can fans expect?
With a new record, we try to raise the bar a bit. Anybody who has been to our show knows we make it a unique experience, whether that’s a change to the set list. We’re going to try to make it more of a multisensory show.
