'American Idol' Season 7 winner is back with new lyric video for 'Gimme Heartbreak.'
18 July 2017
Rock singer-songwriter #David Cook is back with his new #Lyric Video for his latest radio single "Gimme Heartbreak." The "#American Idol" Season 7 winner premiered the highly-anticipated single on Yahoo! Music during the previous month. "Gimme Heartbreak" is the lead-off single from his upcoming EP, which is expected to be released in the fall of 2017. As of yet, the EP is untitled. The rock sensation is getting his fans involved in his forthcoming studio effort via his PledgeMusic campaign.
On July 11, David Cook performed at Stage 17 in New York City for the hit radio station 95.5 PLJ, and his new single "Gimme Heartbreak" was one of the three songs (along with his popular hits "Light On" and "Come Back To Me") that he performed live for the intimate group of fans that gathered at the event, which was hosted by on-air radio personality Ralphie.
This mini-concert marked the inaugural debut acoustic performance of "Gimme Heartbreak."
In addition, "Gimme Heartbreak" is the first new music from Cook since he released his critically-acclaimed fourth studio album, "Digital Vein," back in 2015. That independent project was a commercial success, charting in the Top 5 on the Billboard Pop Albums Charts, where it peaked at No. 4; furthermore, the album made it on the Top 35 on the Billboard 200 all-genre charts.

Fans and listeners that attended both of these shows were treated to a live performance of "Gimme Heartbreak," as well as his other smash hits.
