David Cook's 'The Last Goodbye' video first look -- EXCLUSIVE


David Cook’s second major-label album This Loud Morning hits stores on June 28; On Monday, Cook pulls back the curtain on the tongue-in-cheek video for lead single  “The Last Goodbye,” and the image above is the exclusive first look at the clip.

In the video, which was directed by Nigel Dick (Britney Spears’ “Oops…I Did It Again,” Oasis’ “Wonderwall,” Nickelback’s “Photograph”), Cook goes AWOL from his band’s tour and loses his wallet on the beach. The band finds his stuff, and believes that he has gone missing and might have drowned. Cook, meanwhile, is oblivious to their concerns.

“It would have been easy to just set the band up and do a broody performance video,” Cook explained to EW. “But I wanted to do something a little more fun.”

In the preview shot above, Cook discovers a newspaper that contains the headline “David Cook Feared Drowned,” a prop he was particularly proud of. “I’m going to frame it and hang it in the house,” he said. “It’s probably one of the best perks or gifts I’ve ever gotten from this whole experience.”

The video will be premiering online on Monday (May 23), and Cook hopes that the positive vibe on set comes across in the clip. “We had so much fun over the two day shoot, and I really think people will be able to see that.”

    Only a man would think a newspaper with headline of his suspected death a perk worth framing and hanging on the wall.
