David Cook signs worldwide publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music
MUMBAI: Warner/Chappell Music (WCM), the music Warner/Chappell Music publishing arm of Warner Music Group, has signed a worldwide co-publishing agreement with singer and songwriter David Cook.
Following a victorious run on the seventh season of American Idol, Cook set the record for the most songs by one artist on the Hot 100 of any week - charting 11 entries - and also set the record for the most debuts on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart with 14 songs. This success was soon followed by Cook’s self-titled, platinum-selling debut album, which reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and saw two Top 20 singles.
“I'm excited to get involved with Warner/Chappell and work with some of the best songwriters in the industry. It's an honor to be a part of the roster and I'm looking forward to furthering my songwriting career with them,” said Cook.
Warner/Chappell Music Nashville executive vice president Ben Vaughn said, “David brings so much to the table with his diversity as a songwriter and a voice that makes you stop and pay attention. We’re looking forward to supporting him as his career continues to grow.”
Cook has sold over five million tracks, and his second album, This Loud Morning, debuted in the top ten. In 2012, Cook relocated to Nashville, TN. Freshly inspired by the creative spirit of Music City, Cook is currently working on music for his new album – a collection of tracks he wrote and self-produced, including the new single “Wait For Me.” In addition to his own music, Cook has become a fixture in the Nashville songwriting community, recently co-writing the 2014 top 20 country radio single “Kiss You Tonight,” by David Nail.
