Release date: June 2011
This Loud Morning is the second major-label studio album by American singer-songwriter and American Idol season 7 winner David Cook. It was released on June 28, 2011. Executive produced by Matt Serletic, This Loud Morning features tracks written and co-written by Cook along with many acclaimed songwriters, including David Hodges, Ryan Tedder, Kevin Griffin and Marti Frederiksen.
Before recording, Cook said he has "lofty ideas" for his second album and described early songs written with Julian Emery and Jim Irvin as having "massive choruses" and "very U2-esque". At the beginning his goal was to make an album that "really, really pushed the concept of dynamic".
The Last Goodbye is the first official single from This Loud Morning and was released on April 19, 2011.
