David Cook has released a new lyric video for his brand new single, ”Gimme Heartbreak.” Check it out below!

David tells Variety magazine that he made “a conscious effort going into the production to incorporate more cinematic pop elements.” Taking inspiration from recent releases — “I was listening to Halsey’s  ‘Badlands’ record,” he reveals — Cook also leaned on “old standbys like Nine Inch Nails and Massive Attack” to find “vibes” for a new direction with “Gimme Heartbreak.”

Gimme Heartbreak” is the lead track from David’s forthcoming untitled EP, which is slated to be released later this fall. David is again involving his fans in the EP making process via a PledgeMusic Campaign

Gimme Heartbreak” is available on all digital providers and is the first new music from the multi-talented and multifaceted singer-songwriter since 2015’s Digital Vein album release, which debuted in the top 5 on Billboard’s Pop Chart. “Gimme Heartbreak” features David’s impressive strong vocals backed by synth beats Gimme Heartbreak” feels like a new chapter to me.  New direction, new energy.  A new sound that I’m excited to share and build on, says David.
