New Single is out - Criminals

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

Last Friday David, in conjunction with USA Today, announced the release of his newest single...Criminals! I love this song!

If you have pledged at Pledge Music, you should have received an email giving you a download of the song. If you are not a pledger, you can go to iTunes and purchase it, as well as preordering the album there.

I am on my iPad and it is hard for me to add videos and links from here, but I will try to add a video later. David performed the song live at the Lexington and Kokomo shows this weekend. If anyone else wants to add one of the videos that would be grat.

The song is a real ear worm and is getting great reviews!

eta: Video from first live performance in Lexington, MI - thanks to Kristen (mskristen8108)

Official Lyrics (per Lisa at DCO):

CRIMINALS

This is a state of emergency
Held down for an eternity, victims
Tell me, are you list’ning
Lets break out of this prison cell
Create stories the world will tell their children
In time, we’ll be forgiven

But tonight, you & I
We can make our escape
From the choices we made
So let’s run, for our lives
Just like we’re animals
Cause, baby, we’re criminals

Spotlights, tracing our every move
Hearts race, breathless and bulletproof, I’ll hold you
Won’t let anybody hurt you
This fight, fell at our footsteps
And I swear, the further that we get, the closer we are
To finding love in these scars

Cause tonight, you & I
We can make our escape
From the choices we made
So let’s run, for our lives
Just like we’re animals
Cause, baby, we’re criminals

Yeah, we’re all against the wall
Looking for a way around
On the run like criminals
Breaking out

--
Written by: David Cook / Blair Daly

Thought I would put this here. Hopefully everyone is streaming :Criminals" Here are a few tips I have found from streaming for the last few years.

When I just stream one video, it counts for a few hits and then no longer counts. When I added 2 extra videos , that seems to works the best. I stream the newest release and the last released single before. I then add a random video of David from a show or interview as my 3rd.. It seems to work the best with adding hits. I also will change the rotation every so often. Thought I would put this here hope it helps.

I just love "Criminals" and can't wait for the new album.

Criminals official lyric video:



eta: If the video isn't working for you right now, it is because Vevo was supposed to give Yahoo music a 24 hour exclusive. It should be back working tomorrow. In the meantime, you can watch it on Yahoo Music. Lyndsay Parker wrote a nice article about it there, too.
