Get Ready to Cook This Fall

It’s official. David Cook has been signed to 19 Recordings/RCA Records and will record his debut album while on the road with the Idols tour.

“Variety” reports the CD will be released in the fall. October had been the traditional month for “Idol” winners to release an album, but Taylor and Jordin released theirs in November and December (and we know how that worked out). A return to fall makes more sense because it will come on the heels of the tour.

By the way, you may recall that Jordin had an all-time low for an “Idol” winner when her CD sold only 119,000 in its first week. But her total now is 778,000 copies, passing Taylor Hicks’ sales total…
