Over the last few years, David Cook's life has been punctuated by extraordinary highs and devastating lows. In short order, the 28-year-old singer, songwriter, and musician won the seventh season of America's most popular television show, American Idol, rewrote chart history with a record-breaking 14 debuts on Billboard's Digital Songs chart, released his self-titled major-label debut album in November 2008, watched it debut at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart, spawn two Top 20 singles (the platinum "Light On" and "Come Back To Me"), and sell more than a million copies, reaching platinum status. He immediately hit the road for his year-long "Declaration Tour" to support it. In May of that year, Cook's older brother, Adam, who had been fighting a battle with brain cancer, died of the disease. In December 2009, one day after the tour ended, Cook traveled to New York City to begin writing the songs that would become his second album, This Loud Morning. "I got off the road and all the things that happened that I hadn't been dealing with while I was on the road reared their head," Cook says. "So as I began writing these songs that would eventually make up This Loud Morning, the act of using these songs as therapeutic outlets became a major release for me, and I think the end result is a bit of up, a bit of down, and a lot of honesty." The result is a batch of deeply honest, emotional songs that "allow whomever's listening to look through a window at the past two years of my life," the Texas-born, Missouri-raised Cook says. "It's probably the most therapeutic album I've ever written." As Cook was writing the songs, a theme began to emerge. "There were mornings where I woke up and all I wanted to do was pull the blanket back over my head and try again tomorrow," Cook says. That feeling inspired the album's opening track, "Circadian," as well as its closing track, "Rapid Eye Movement."
