‘Idol’ winner preps for debut

David Cook's first release slated for fall

“American Idol” winner David Cook has been signed to 19 Recordings / RCA Records and is preparing to start recording his debut album which is due for release in fall 2008.

 Cook, who’s first single, “The Time Of My Life” skyrocketed to No. 1 on iTunes, will be recording his album over the summer while on the road with the American Idol’s Live tour. The tour kicks off on July 1 in Glendale, Ariz. — hometown of last year’s winner Jordin Sparks — and wraps Sept. 13th in Tulsa, Okla.

“The Time Of My Life” sold 236,000 digital tracks in four days, making it the best single debut of an “American Idol” since season two. Cook currently has 17 tracks on the top 100 digital songs chart, a record for a single artist.

Before his “Idol” victory Cook independently released an album “Analog Heart” and was in two bands, Midwest Kings and Axium.
