With budding maturity, David Archuleta captures two years’ worth of introspection and reflection, dozens of songwriting sessions, long days spent in the studio and nights in the air, all leading to The Other Side of Down, his highly anticipated second album.
Not only the follow up to David’s 2008 self-titled debut, it’s a reintroduction to the American Idol runner-up with the angelic voice who 30 million television viewers fell in love with during season 7—now older, wiser, with faith still on his side and an eternally optimistic wide-eyed outlook. Hence, the album’s title. “For me, it’s about moving forward and making progress,” David explains. “I’m heading towards ‘the other side of down,’ which is ‘up.’”
Wow, you are fast! Thanks for the new thread with that beautiful pic Kari tweeted. Now the speculation BEGIN.s! (LOL I had to use that word.)
So, do you think that will be the actual new cover? And what will the additions be to the Forevermore Expanded Edition? I’m sure the Rainbow remix will be on it, and possibly ALL the music videos. But, usually there are a few extra songs on an extended edition aren’t there? Do ya’ll think there be NEW songs too?
Bouncing off the walls in anticipation of the new Expanded Edition of Forevermore! David has been so generous with us! New songs, re-mixes of the old songs…whatever David has to give us, I’ll accept with thanks.
Maybe JR can shed some light on this new music that’s coming.
Bringing this over from the end of last tread, from Ascphil:
HAH! Delayed by a request for my password, hehe! Gosh, what excitement is in store for us! I guess this must also have the Forevermore, I’ll Never Go and Rainbow music videos. Just a wild guess…
Can’t also wait for Gladys’ recap! The excitement never stops. ”
<3 Expanded Forevermore,dancy David, Rainbow remix, maybe a twin for Begin and Gladys's soon to released expanded coverage of his Chilean performance! Amazing <3
Being a fan of David is pretty exciting. He inspires new meaning to the phrase "being a fan. I honestly CANNOT stop being a fan of someone so dynamic. He is dynamic and to think we have only scratched the surface.
" He's killing me!" lol
Bebe- You are SO right. "The excitement never stops."
Spazz Spazz….not feeling so well lately but have to come out and spazz with you all hehe !!! David will never stop surprising us, is he ?!!(do I say it right ? Nevermind you all understand me right?)….Seriously need to find a job to support all things he put out lol, and I (we) thought it’s going to be “slow” wait for 2 years!!!
Whoo hoo! Very exciting trying to figure out what all is in this great gift of David’s!♥ What if the NA dvd is in the “expanded” edition of Forevermore! That would be the greatest, but I know it would probably cost too much all in one package. Whatever it is, ♫♪thank you, David♥♪♫
Ummm. No, I am not ignoring all the good news. It is just that I am by nature, a “wait and see” person. And I always believe that my Christmas stocking will be good for: a puppet, a hot-pad, a cute duster, a “one-foot” foot-warmer… etc., even if it should turn out to be empty.
(But dear DA.. you foil all my precautions. It won’t change my nature – but it does give me an eternally warm, comforting feeling that something in your own nature never “comes up empty”.)
#26 Hey JR I was the one who asked about video of Josh G singing WYSYLM live. Thanks for the link but I can’t access the video. Its says Area 403 Access Forbidden!!! I want to see a vid of JG’s live performance just to compare that and David’s version. But it’s ok I can live without, just as long as the DA vids are available.
As for the expanded Forevermore can I just say that pix is ggggaaaaahhhh!!!!
#30 Gladys eeeekkk can’t wait to read all about Archie Balboa!!!
WYSYLM, one of my all time favorite songs, David’s version, of course. I find it very odd that Josh Groban, who made the song popular doesn’t have one live performance on youtube. Surely he sings it at his concerts. I have a friend who is crazy about Josh Groban. Going to email her and let you know what she says.
Sorry I missed chat last night!
Gladys said David covered another of JG’s songs, “You Raise Me Up” in Chile last week. Hope he sings it when he gets back to the states.
You can still sign David’s birthday card. There are 854 who have signed so far. Wish we could get 1,000. It ends tonight at midnight, Central Time.
I love “You Raise Me Up”, JG got me through my sisters illness and death. I played him non-stop while I worked. Still think of her when I hear him. That was a year before DA. I really appreciate him as an artist and person.
Just saw the pictures of David on the right sidebar. How did I miss these? How long have they been there? They’re beautiful! I don’t remember having seen the one where he is wearing the blue, gray, white plaid shirt with the black tie. Wow!!
Thanks for getting me to go back and listen again to WYSYLM by both JG and David. David’s version is just … gahhhh so so good.
JG is known for his phenomenal voice. What other idol has ever attempeted a JG song? Does anyone know if one has?
And how amazing that TPTB on Idol let a 17 year old kid sing it in concert. That says a lot about what a phenomenal voice David has as well. And (IMO) David’s is even better. His voice is like butter on this song and it melts right into your heart. ♥
Abrra……Thanks for the explanation about the gorgeous sidebar pictures. I couldn’t figure out how I missed them before. You’re really making it difficult to concentrate on the posts in the middle of the screen!! More coming?……I’m in big trouble!
Hey JR I just watched that JG video at David Chronicles. You are a vid wizard!!! I had been looking for a live performance vid for the longest time. Thanks so much. I can’t comment at David Chronicles coz I don’t have a wordpress account.
Just want to say I still love David’s version although JG is not bad!!! LOL.
Hi, I am so excited about fee, can’t wait. I have been trying to log into the chat but it won’t let me, it keeps saying my password is wrong, I don’t have a password so how do I get one? I have typed in different words but it doesn’t work.
Betsy is correct. i have it set up so you don’t need to log in with a PW even though there is a space for one. Type a name you want to use then press enter ( or return) on your keyboard. That’s how the lurkers watch You can go test it anytime, the site is always open to watch and chat.
I am getting caught up.on 53 comments. later
.must examine these pics on the sidebar..right…left…beautiful!. who is the wonderful one respondsible for getting me all tangled up in my umbilical chord this morning? Beautiful!♥
You have put some killer photos on the right sidebar. TYVM ♥ I just love the ones with the headphones. IDK why, I just do. Something about him recording, i guess. They make me smile. haha A few others make me smile too. I hope I don’t forget to read comments when I get here!
Missed chat last night as we were away, but I was thinking about you all! Okay, so JG singing just isn’t the same as David. Josh has a beautiful voice, but there is something missing for me. I want to say it is some heart connection, but Josh sings quite heartfelt. It just lacks that special “David emotion”.
David has spoiled me for almost every other singer out there. I watch SNL last night and Bruno Mars was on. I really like him, and still, even though his voice is so interesting, I just…..don’t……get the chills.
TDC uses a different version of wordpress than The Voice. So, you need to register with TDC.

Abrra, hugs for all the new awesome pictures of David on the right sidebar! I like the feeling of our comments, being surrounded by David—it makes me remember Dakgal’s “Man of a Thousand Faces” which was posted the last Sunday in July—-loved that article and miss her!
Another NA family signature on David’s card—-the director, Perci!!!! It touches my heart how the NA family still is showing its love for David….and Kari, too. (I ‘met’ my 3 PI BEGIN. giftees via David’s card….what a thrill!!!)
Kudos for all the hard work that all of you in The Voice administration is continuing, supporting David is such special ways…..every post and chat is deeply appreciated.
Back from Vegas to this exciting news! There never seems to be a dull moment in the Archuworld. Wow, more songs and remixes would be so great. Now the waiting to see what FEE holds in store for us…like I said, neve a dull moment!
