On October 16 at 11 A.M., David Cook arrived at L.A. Valley College to shoot a music video for his new song "Light On". Accompanied by his newly assembled band, Cook pounded his way through the song for more than a dozen takes.

"We did the first run-through, and I felt real timid because, obviously, I don't have any experience. It's not like I grew up shooting music videos," he told MTV about what he felt during the video shoot. "It's weird, man. Little things keep happening along the way that drive the point home that I'm doing something that's both insane and really fulfilling, and this is one of those things. To be able to shoot a music video is kind of rad - especially something on this scale. So, you know, I hope I don't blow it."

The music video was directed by Wayne Isham, the man behind Britney Spears' "Piece of Me" music video. For the first three hours, Isham mainly shot Cook's solo performance at the college's field before his band joined in. Finally, by daylight at about 06.30 A.M., Cook left the area as Isham announced that the video was wrapped.

"Light On" is a single, which is co-written by Chris Cornell of Audioslave and produced by Rob Cavallo. The new song is confirmed to appear on Cook's major-label debut album "David Cook", which will be available for purchase on November 18 in the U.S.

In related news, on November 1, Cook is scheduled to appear as a musical guest on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" show, making his first public appearance with his new band. He is also set to perform at ABC's "Good Morning America" for November-17 appearance.

ru kidding Jilliann x Kaate David Archuleta sucks. David Cook is way more deserving cause he can actually sing. Don't even bother commenting on David Cook's pages no one cares what you think. David Cook won so oviously he is better and people like his voice a lot more. All David Archuleta does is wheeze into the mic.

David Archuleta is a good singer, but David Cook rocks my socks. I love the way he puts his heart and soul in every song he sings. Love his sense of humor and guy next door demeanor. He is a born performer as much at home in front of thousands on tour this summer as in front of ten in a bar in Tulsa. I hope he has a fantastic and long lasting career. No one is more deserving.
