mjsbigblog.com: David Cook Co-Wrote “Screaming” with James Durbin
According to publicity materials, James Durbin co-wrote one of the songs, “Screaming”, from his upcoming album Memories of a Beautiful Disaster with none other than… American Idol Season 7 winner David Cook!
"Meanwhile, “Screaming,” co-written by James and ‘Idol’ Season 8 [sic] winner David Cook, tackles a very topical issue and that’s the epidemic of bullying that’s rampant among the youth of the nation and something Durbin himself experienced. “There are a lot of songs that look at and deal with being bullied and singled out, and that’s definitely one. We went at it with a ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ feel, but it’s about how there is light at the end of the tunnel.” Again, ‘Screaming’ could join ‘Higher Than Heaven’ and ‘Outcast’ as the rock anthems for the plugged in generation."

Well, that’s very interesting news, isn’t it? The song is about bullying. Even more interesting. Memories of a Beautiful Disaster is produced by Howard Benson and is set to drop November 21.
