David Cook Now Flying Solo: “I’m Currently Without a Record Deal”
Uh oh! As the Season 11 finalists battle it out to be the next American Idol, the Season 7 Idol is back on the market, having ended his relationship with RCA Records.
"I'm currently without a record deal," David Cook told The Hollywood Reporter. He also broke up with 19 Entertainment and is currently being managed by Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment.
David is trying to self-release his new song, "The Last Song I'll Write For You" — which he just performed May 10 on Idol — and see what happens from there.
"It just felt like the time to try something different," David said, adding that he loves the creative control. However, if other record company suitors come along, he won't kick them out of bed. "We're just going to keep doing what we're doing. If someone wants to hop on board and get behind it, then great, let's talk about it. I just love making music and however I'm gonna do that is however I'm gonna do that."
