Three days ago, David Cook began recording his first single. He revealed to ABC News Radio that he’s the type to just hole up and write songs by himself; had never co-written songs with anyone before. It’s been a cool experience, he said, to be able to attack the songs from another standpoint. Working with other songwriters also allowed him to reveal more of himself and delving into some aspects of his life and his experiences that he would never have felt comfortable sharing a year ago. Despite being a solo artist, David hopes that his album will have a band feel to it. His old bandmate from Midwest Kings, Neal Tiemann, will be recording with him at least, so it’ll feel like the old band days, at least!
As for the American Idol Tour, David Cook’s having the time of his life. “I love it,” he says. “Every city has its own kind of stamp, every city has its own vibe.” The highlight of the tour so far is playing golf in Portland with Michael Johns.
And speaking of tours, David also mentioned that his concert date in Manila hasn’t been confirmed yet. Looks like we’ll have to try not to get too excited as we sit tight and wait for more updates!
