Return to David Cook

Interview: David Cook Discusses New EP, ‘Chromance’ and his Broadway debut in ‘Kinky Boots’

By:   AXS Contributor Feb 22, 2018

Singer-songwriter and American Idol winner, David Cook’s new EP, Chromance is the next chapter in the artist’s musical evolution.

The ubiquitous use of love as a theme runs rampant throughout much of the EP, but what’s refreshing is Cook’s incorporation of cinematic, pop elements into the mix. Songs like “The Lucky Ones” speak of love in an alternate reality, while tracks like “Warfare” and “Circles” leave the listener wanting more. Chromance also features the driving track, “Gimme Heartbreak” as well as Cook’s ethereal spin on the Phil Collins smash, “Another Day in Paradise”.

If putting out a new album wasn’t enough, Cook will also be making his Broadway debut as Charlie Price in “Kinky Boots,” based on the book by Harvey Fierstein and with music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper. Cook’s run is scheduled for April 3 – May 5.
