David Cook Releases New Video and Returns to Idol
David Cook is a busy boy this week! A new video for “The Last Goodbye,” Hollywood appearances and a guest performance spot on “American Idol” all this week… and a Fresh 102.7 event coming soon!
First, the winner of season 7 of American Idol premiered his new music video for his single “The Last Goodbye” yesterday. On the same day David Cook jetted to Hollywood, along with Carrie Underwood, to celebrate Idol’s creator Simon Fuller’s new “Hollywood Walk of Fame” star. Tonight, Cook will return to Idol for an on-stage cover performance of Simple Mind’s 1985 hit “Don’t You (Forget About Me).”

The music vid was directed by seasoned director Nigel Dick, who has rubbed creative shoulders with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Britney Spears[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Oasis[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nickelback[/lastfm] in the past.
The video is simple at first: David pensively creates his new single on a beach. But then there’s a twist of plot and a clever ending you don’t see coming. “The Last Goodbye” is the single for Cook’s sophomore album This Loud Morning, which drops on June 28.
