"Laying Me Low" is a song recorded by American recording artist David Cook. It was released as a single on April 30, 2013 through XIX Recordings and Cook's imprint Analog Heart Music. The song is also included on Cook's fourth studio album, Digital Vein (2015).
In 2012, Cook parted ways his post-Idol record label RCA Records in search of more creative control over his career. He self-released a new song, "The Last Song I'll Write for You", later that year before moving to Nashville, Tennessee to begin work on a new album. Cook co-wrote "Laying Me Low" with Andrew Waldeck and Chris Reardon and explained in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he was "refocusing on enjoying the creative process" of songwriting. The single was announced on April 21, 2013 before being released to digital retailers on April 30.
