In addition to announcing the title and unveiling its official artwork, the 'Light On' singer also confirms June 28 as the album release date in the U.S.
David Cook has unveiled details of his upcoming second studio album. In a press release issued by RCA on Friday, April 15, it's revealed that the new effort is officially titled "This Loud Morning". The artwork has been unwrapped as well, featuring him standing in front of several abandoned loudspeaker systems.
"This album is the culmination of one of the loftiest endeavors I've ever undertaken. The end result is an album that I cannot wait to share with everyone," said the 2008 winner of "American Idol". He's going to release it across the United States on June 28.
The first single "The Last Goodbye" will be performed in "American Idol" on April 21. "I'm certainly looking forward to meeting the new contestants, and also really excited to meet the new judges," he said. "From what I've seen so far, Steven Tyler is a riot, and I think J.Lo's been incredible. And I'm excited to see Randy, Ryan and everybody behind the scenes."
It's been three years since David dropped his first post-"Idol" album which is a self-titled one. "Yeah, it's been a very long labor of love... But I think it's how long this record needed to take. Lyrically, musically, emotionally, this record is open. There's some fresh wound moments, for sure," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
