David Cook Gets "American Idiot" Producer On Board for Album

By |

From American Idiot to American Idol: After David Archuleta fired the first salvo with "Crush," American Idol winner David Cook dropped news about his own debut album, revealing that Green Day's Idiot producer Rob Cavallo will man the boards. Cook and Cavallo are squeezing studio sessions while Cook fills his obligation to the AI tour, with mid-November still the targeted release date. Cavallo has also worked with artists like My Chemical Romance, Kid Rock, Avril Lavigne and, currently, the Dave Matthews Band. "I think he's a great producer with the kind of sound that I want," Cook told EW.com. "And in talking to him, he's just a good guy. Like the song selection I had on the show, Rob just fit." Cook has also had writing sessions with Collective Soul's Ed Roland, hoping to carve out a rock record "that's true to himself."
