David Cook’s “Laying Me Low”

David Cook, who has been laying low in Nashville for the last little while to write and record new music, is ready for his comeback!

He launches this new chapter in his music career with his new single, “Laying Me Low“, a song is about an attraction fuelled by temptation and danger, and how hard it is to resist someone who is just no good for you (you get me high, but you’re laying me low).

This recording mixes a bit of a catchy, pop sound (with an energizing stomp clap section in the bridge to boot!) into the emotionally-driven rock grit that is part of his signature style.

For a musician as daring and creative as Cook, “Laying Me Low” presents a different, more evolved sound with successful results.

I remember when you lit my flame
A bitter passion with a pinch of pain
You left me praying for a single drop of rain
But now the fire’s burning out of control
Because I’m never gonna let you go
So bring the gasoline and we can start the show

David Cook’s “Laying Me Low” is available on iTunes.

I’ve never felt more hopeful and confident towards life and what the future holds in store, and I owe it all to the gift of song. This blog is a tribute to the music and the artists that have helped me get to where I am today.

You’re going to hear a lot about a little show called American Idol, the platform from which I gained a whole new level of love and appreciation of music. There are four musicians from Season 7 of the show who have a rather big presence in my life. Allow me to introduce you to them…
