David Cook is set to fulfill his musical career dreams after the American Idol Seventh Season winner has finally signed a major record deal. Cook will release his debut LP under 19 Recordings/RCA Records and it is being set for release this fall. The rock singer reportedly will start his album's works over the summer, taking up the empty dates from his upcoming Idol Tour which will starts on July 1.

Commenting about the deal, the 25-year-old rocker said to the press, "Signing this deal is truly a dream come true. I am looking forward to the recording process...The support I have received from America has been overwhelming, and I can't wait to hopefully do right by them." Meanwhile, Cook's current label through their vice president, Tom Corson, also shout out their praise on the rocker saying, "David Cook is an extraordinarily versatile and talented artist. He is a natural performer and a true star. We are thrilled to welcome him into our family."

The Missouri born singer's upcoming album won't exactly be the first for him, as previously he has dropped an indie record titled "Analog Heart" in 2006. But due to the request of the American Idol producers, the LP has been pulled out of the market in April despite topping the Amazon MP3 download chart.

Meanwhile, just before Cook spawned new singles from his new album, the rocker has already hit the jackpot with his current singles which he sang at the American Idol. The rocker's 11 songs will be entering the Billboard 100 chart edition this week. Leading the top position from his 11 tracks is "The Time of My Life" which previously has topped the iTunes digital sales chart.
