David Cook, Season 7 winner of American Idol, released a new single Friday.

David Cook told Yahoo this week that his new music will have a “dark and edgy and moody sound.”

“Gimme Heartbreak,” the lead single from an upcoming EP, hit digital music sites Friday morning.

And fans clearly approve.

The song was number 57 on the iTunes pop singles chart at 10 a.m. An hour later, it had already climbed to number 54.

Some of the fan feedback from David’s Facebook page:

Jeri Leah Snyder: Woo hoo!!! Love this song!!! Dirty, grungy, wonderfulness!!!

Heather Vollman: Your voice is pristine. The edge in this song is just right. Stoked for you. Thanks for the music.

Kayanne Smith: You’ve gone and done it again…perfection!! I cannot wait to hear what else you’re working on!! This is one sexy track!! LOVE IT!!

Dinna Respati: More darker moody vibes, please!!! (Not sure what that says about me but who cares.)

Destiny Whiddon: This makes my heart so happy 💖 it’s so great, it’s something different but definitely suits you. I’ve been counting down the hours.

David hasn’t announced a release date for the EP, but said it should be out in the fall.

It will follow his independently released “Digital Vein” album from 2015

Meanwhile, David has lots of tour dates coming up, which you can check out on his Facebook page and website.

They include a Thursday, July 6 show at World Cafe Live in Philly. Tickets are $25 to $30 plus fees, and a VIP meet and greet upgrade is available.
