David Cook Returning to American Idol
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.
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.
