    Season 7 American Idol winner David Cook has recorded the farewell song for the 10th season of American Idol. The song, chosen by American Idol creator and Executive Producer Simon Fuller, is a remake of Simple Minds 1985 smash "Don't You (Forget About Me)" and it will air each week as contestants are eliminated. "Don't You (Forget About Me)" is now available, for free, on DavidCookOfficial.com for those who preorder David's forthcoming album. It also will be available for sale via iTunes and other digital providers on March 8th.

    David Cook has been busy in the studio working on his highly anticipated sophomore album with producer Matt Serletic (Rob Thomas, Matchbox Twenty, Collective Soul), which will be released by 19 Recordings/RCA Records later this year.

    After winning the Idol crown in season 7, Cook went on to sell over 1 million copies of his self-titled debut album and set out on a year long nationwide tour in support of his multiple hit singles. Cook's coronation single, "The Time of My Life" was certified platinum and is not only the biggest single debut but the highest selling coronation single in the show's history.

    Are you psyched to hear David Cook's rendition of "Don't You (Forget About Me)?"
