David Cook recording with Green Day producer

David Cook has promised to make a rock record that's true to himself, and the American Idol winner has confirmed that the studio maestro tasked with helping him realize that goal is Rob Cavallo. The producer has already lent his talents to high profile projects from My Chemical Romance, Kid Rock, and, most extensively, Green Day, including their Grammy Award-winning album American Idiot, and Cook is confident that Cavallo is the right person for his upcoming release. "I think he's a great producer with the kind of sound that I want," Cook tells EW.com. "And in talking to him, he's just a good guy. Like the song selection I had on the show, Rob just fit."

The two are currently squeezing in studio time whenever the Idol summer tour allows, and Cook still plans to release the album in mid-November. As previously reported, Cook has had writing sessions with Our Lady Peace's Raine Maida and Collective Soul's Ed Roland, but there's one person who isn't involved with the album: industry vet Clive Davis, the man who executive produced all of the Idols' debuts, but whose role at SonyBMG, where he's currently Chief Creative Officer of SonyBMG Worldwide, has shifted. "I never heard his name brought up," Cook said.

That may free up Cook to make his own decision about whether to include his Idol finale single, "The Time of My Life," on the album. (Being forced to include a generally-sappy but familiar song on a decidedly rock debut had been a bone of contention for one previous winner, Taylor Hicks, who reportedly resisted having "Do I Make You Proud" on his album.) Cook hasn't yet made the call about the single. "It's not like there's any resistance to [the song]," he says. "My goal is to make a cohesive record, and I don't want any song to stick out like a sore thumb. But in every meeting that I've had with 19 [Management] and RCA [Records], they've been very supportive of what I want to do with my record."

Yay for no Clive producing David's record! Rob Cavallo sounds like a good choice.

Bringing over from The Clack House:

Quote :

RCA sent out a press release announcing RC as producer





American Idol Winner David Cook Teams With Grammy Winning Producer Rob Cavallo on Debut Album Due Out in Fall 2008


NEW YORK, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- American Idol winner David Cook has
teamed up with Grammy winning producer Rob Cavallo on his debut album for 19 Recordings/RCA Records,
due out this fall.

Cavallo, best known for his work with the legendary pop-punk band
Green Day, has also produced records for superstar artists such as
Kid Rock, Eric Clapton, My Chemical Romance, Goo Goo Dolls, and is working
with the Dave Matthews Band on an upcoming release.

Cook has been busy in the studio when not on the road
with the American Idols Live tour, co-writing many of the
upcoming album tracks alongside some of music's hottest
rock songwriters.

Earlier this summer Cook set the record for the most new entries
by an artist in the 50-year history of the Hot 100, with 11 songs
entering the chart dated June 7, 2008. That broke the record of six
new entries in one week. Cook's 11 songs were led by "The Time of
My Life," which debuted at No. 3, making it the highest new entry of 2008.
"The Time of My Life" debuted at No 1 on two other charts, the
Hot Digital Songs and the Hot Digital Tracks.

25 year-old David Cook hails from Blue Springs, Missouri.


And E Online has this little doozy

David Still Cooking on Album Release:

Quote:
While no specific release date, save for the month, has been announced for Cook's debut, what is for sure is that this fall will mark yet another
battle of the Davids, with Cook and Idol runner-up David Archuleta expected to drop their albums on the same day.

Oh. Um. Yay?

Please tell me they are not going to release the CDs the same day to make it another Big David/Little David competition? No Rolling Eyes

David Cook Kansas City News






Quote :
The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that American Idol champion and Blue Springs, Missouri native David Cook will perform the National Anthem on September 14th when the Chiefs host the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium. David will perform the anthem with his younger brother, Andrew Cook.

David originally went to the American Idol auditions in Omaha, Nebraska to support his brother Andrew through the process. However, David also auditioned for the show, and eventually became the champion of the seventh season of the hit competition.

"We are very excited to have David and Andrew perform the anthem for our first regular season game of the 2008 season" Chiefs President Carl Peterson, noted. "The citizens of Kansas City are proud to call David one of our own, and we are very happy for all of the well deserved success he has achieved. We know our fans will give both David and Andrew a very warm reception on September 14th."

Not even remotely near the end of the opening ceremonies here yet, but what is TOML?

How cool that a David Cook song is the headliner!

**

So I googled "David Cook TOML"..and there were many links!

But they all called it TOML with no translation.

So let me guess:
Tomatoes On My Lap
Tongues On My Lips
Tonight Only MY Lizard
Tough Onions Mean Languishing

Sigh. I am hopeless with initials.

"Time of my Life" . That is David's hit single. The song he sang when he won Idol. It was used twice on So You Think You Can Dance, on that sports award show Justin Timberlake hosted and now the Olympics! He must be thrilled so many millions are hearing his song!

He is the first Idol since Kelly Clarkson who strikes me as a true pop-rock star (not that he won't also do other genres, too).

Kelly got burned out, but I expect her to be back in some major form eventually.

David Cook continues to seem like a pretty sane guy (though with execrable taste in women -- Kimberly Caldwell..is he still with her?...hopefully that will pass), and I think the saner people last the longest.

Did DC have a hand in writing that?

That song was written by Chris Cornell. DC wrote other songs with Chris and others for the CD, but this is the song that they felt was a good transition song from his "coronation single" to his "harder rock". You know - ease those AI watchers and listeners who love "Time of my Life" into the rockier songs. It is a good blend of pop and rock.

I think you are right and DC can be successful like KC. I recently got her last CD and listened to it once No Looking forward to her new CD that is coming out early 2009. I am hearing great things about it.

As far as I know he is still with Kimberme! Suspect
