Consistency ~ Dressing David Archuleta for Success

Posted by MT on Monday, June 27, 2011

When it comes to vocal talent, David is as consistent as they come. His voice is on point and on pitch in every performance. He is consistent in delivering an emotionally potent and riveting performance. Singing comes as natural to him as breathing and he rarely misses his mark. He may hit an off note once in a while, but they are few and far between and it’s usually when he’s sick. Vocally, people know what to expect from David and he never disappoints.

David is in the process of discovering his own sound and deciding what picture he wants to paint for the world with his songs. He understands that the world needs to know what to expect from him and he’s trying to make sure that his next project shows the world “who he is” and what they can expect. He is now striving for consistency in this aspect of his life.

There is one last category where I think David still needs to find consistency.  That is his wardrobe/image. I know this might seem insignificant. And I know it would be hard for him to actually look bad. With that face? Please! He’s just too beautiful. But I do think he needs some consistency for not only his fans, but for anyone who wants to hire him for a performance. They should know what to expect both in his look and his sound.

David is in a transitional stage with his image as well as his music. David’s first tour, when he was only 18 years old, was affectionately known by some fans as “the plaid tour.” David wore a different plaid shirt for almost every performance. For the CFTH tour, the second half was performed with him wearing a beautiful black jacket and dress shirt with black pants (very nice, by the way). Since then, David has had no real consistency in what he wears. He has done performances in everything from T-shirts and scarves to a Tux. Of course, the Tux was an exception, worn for the most formal of occasions, singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, but you get my meaning.

Now that David is no longer a teenager and is looking ahead towards what I hope will be a very long career in music, isn’t it time for him to develop his own style in regards to his professional appearance and have some consistency in this area as well? I think he would benefit from finding a nice mature look that he’s comfortable and consistent with, whether it’s for concerts, interviews, singing the NA at sporting events or performing for charity. I’m thinking that this might just fall into place once he discovers his own sound. There will probably be a look that he feels just naturally goes with it.

I know David isn’t going to take our opinion into consideration and I’m not saying he should. When David is ready, he will choose his own style. So…

JUST FOR FUN, and because things are slow right now, how about a little poll? Which of the following photos do you think would be a good look for David now that he’s no longer a teenager? What would you like to see him wearing consistently?

If there’s another photo out there that’s not listed that you think would be a great image for David, let us know. Personally, I’m partial to the fitted T-shirt with a jacket and dark blue or black jeans. It might be a little warm for him on stage with a jacket, but he could always take it off after a few songs, once he gets warmed up.

1. 

Very nice! Well fitting. (This color blue looks GREAT on him.)

Casual, comfortable, & looks every bit of his 20 years in this one.

2. 

This could work, too. Fitted shirt and skinny tie FTW!

3. 

Hmmm … a bit too casual?  Maybe with darker jeans?

(Is that the same T-Shirt from pic 1? Hmmm…

Different jeans and no jacket?  Not the same look. )

4. 

Short-waisted, double-breasted MJ style military jacket. Nice.  ♥

5. 

Dressy casual.  Hmmm… a bit too dressy for on stage?

6. 

Black leather jacket with jeans and tie anyone?  😛

7.

My fave.

Gorgeous. That’s all. Just Gorgeous. Well fitting, solid colored T-shirt, Jacket, Dark Jeans, Boots ♥ Different colored T-Shirt = different outfit! Easy as pie.

A little too hot? Like I said, he could always take the jacket off later. (P.S. His hair looks GREAT brushed back like that, too. Makes him look older.

Ready? Choose a photo and tell us why you chose it in the comment section.

    MT Yes Yes! Great fun waking up to this article.David is so much fun to dress!
    With his slim boyish figure he can really dress to kill, and he does kill in that last outfit! Have to vote for that one.He looks gorgeous, and “put together”from the top to bottom.
    I love David in saturated colors too. That blue t-shirt for example!) I like the rounded neck as opposed to the v-neck too.
    (Gee, I am kinda picky,) haha
    boy,would be easy to talk about this forever.I keep getting sidetracked with all the looks in the sidebar too.

    I am just glad he doesn’t like baggy jeans and shirts that come down to his knees on stage.(or anywhere)Whatever he chooses to make his style.. all I can say is “fitted” David. Think “fitted”!

    love that top picture…

    I voted for #1 because the t shirt fits him so nicely & the jeans are well….they’re as flattering as can be! I like # 7 a lot too. He looks so handsome in that sport coat. Love the hair too.
    The MJ style jacket is nice but it doesn’t fit properly. Too big.

    I think David does need a little help from a stylist. His photo shoot for TOSOD was good because everything he wore looked great on him. But who am I kidding. It’sDavid. Actually I hardly notice what he’s wearing because I’m always looking at his face.

    While I usually don’t like to concentrate so much on what David wears (let’s face it~he looks great in everything)..I agree it’s the perfect time to focus on “his signature look” & I voted for #7. His TOSOD album cover is incredible! He could come out in the jacket & remove it when it gets too hot leaving him with a comfy “T” & dark jeans. In the winter time, I’d love to see him continue to wear scarves..no one wears a scarf like David in my humble opinion & it simply dresses up any outfit he chooses. His hair in the photoshoot for the album is perfection~so handsome! 🙂

    Fun article MT! I’m torn between #1 Wichita and #7 TOSOD cover. And then there’s leather David. Oh MT, you make it so hard to choose! LOL Uh make that, David makes it so hard to choose. He always looks good to me. But I get what you mean about consistency in the way he dresses. I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately too. Most artists have an image, a look that sells them. It’s all part of the total package and I’ve been wanting David to have that too. I also loved what he wore to his New Year’s Eve performance:

    Now I’m really confused!

    After giving it a lot of thought (LOL) I chose the first picture. David rocked that crowd in Wichita and the energy was undeniable. I’m sure it was 99% because of his performance but I can bet that what he wore that night had something to do with it, too.

I fixed the poll comment page so comments come here instead. sheesh…how’d that happen?

    Thanks MT for a fun way to start off the week leading up to SOF! I think he has a pretty good sense of style but doesn’t always use it to the best effect. I mean he wore scarves for pete’s sake and made that work for him. Memo to David: Do you see any plaid or graphic tees in this poll? Alright then.

    My reasons for picking 7 are obvious. As MT says it has endless possibilities and is gorgeous. Plus, can you just see him stomping them roses on stage with those boots? My reasons for picking 1? Three words: Wichita, Grand Rapids.

    Gone shopping. Y’all have a great day!

    So I made myself vote for #7. Love David in black and white. I’m thinking of the pictures that may have been the finale.

    Gotta say I it all also depends upon the venue and occasion. I like to see him wearing the right colors and color combinations but, BUT COME ON with his voice and that face everything else almost fades into the background.

    MT, Good one. As gorgeous as David is and for the most part he looks stunning in anything he wears I get that in some occasions a little more thought needs to be made depending on the event. 1 and 7 are a tie for me! So hard to choose just one.

    I’m with Ray here, choose?! just one?! Impossible. So thank you Angelica for letting us pick more than one lol.

    Number 2 is a great look, I also love the leather look for the AI Finale party and the No Air duet, very nice look.

    Ram, she’s guilty as charged! Like screaming fire in a theatre lol.

    Bringing this over from last thread because I think it was because it was beautifully said by Dak.

    “Really when his journey is compacted into 15 minutes, it really hits you how he went from this beyond happy young boy–to a mentally-emotionally and physically drained young boy. At the end he was running on ” E “. 😦

    I think that’s kind of the way he was getting again–and I’m beyond happy that he’s slowing down and recognizing that he needs to find himself and breathe and I’m so grateful that his fans appreciate this and are letting him lead the way.

    Here’s to THE ARCHULETA”

    Dak, lump in the throat here. I for one am so grateful that David exists and that he is part of my life, I couldn’t ask for more when he has given so much at the tender age of 20 ♥

    You know, as soon as I saw Pic #1, I wondered how long it would be before Grand Rapids Barriers made an appearance *cough*Angelica*cough*. That blue on blue combo makes him look taller. And trim. And really, really good…..Where was I?
    Oh–I vote for #7, however, because it’s a great look for college-age guys and suitable for occasions where he might want a slightly more mature/professional look. I’ve noticed that the young guys in our family don’t really settle into a look until they’ve achieved a certain amount of focus concerning their future, usually somewhere between 20 and 25/26. I do wish David would leave the graphic tees behind for public appearances.

    A look that sells… Exactly Bebe, me too. David is sooo handsome. He needs a “look” that would help to complete that “total package.”

    I have to say again how much I love that look in the pic at #5. For outdoor concerts in the cold? That would be my choice.

    24. Lurker, thanks for commenting! I agree about the jacket in #4. I just worry it would be sooo warm on stage, just like the pic at comment #5. But look good on him? Oh yeahhhh!

    I responded to dakgal in the last thread in hopes of presenting some balance that would give some perspective.

    That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
    Friedrich Nietzsche

    Idol was boot camp for David’s musical career. He needed to go through that gauntlet and come out with a better understanding. If he was ever going to progress beyond Utah talent contests, Idol was the most productive vehicle he had. Every one of the contestants had pressure. Making it to the end was a double edged sword for David.

    The subsequent 2 years of non stop appearances to promote his CD’s did take its toll. He recognized that if he didn’t slow down, his creativity would be snuffed. With the obvious lack of support from his label, he saw that it was time to take full charge of is destiny.

  28. I have a hard time concentrating on David’s outfit when I get lost in THAT voice and THOSE eyes! My sincere thanks for allowing us more than one choice.
    After much pondering, I am leaning towards 1, 4, (although, the jacket needed tailoring!) 6, and then ending with #7 being one of my favorite “more mature” looks.
    #1 is perfect for the summer season. The tee with a darker jean with a little belt showing works for me. 😉
    My only critique would be: whatever he is wearing should fit and be ironed!

    In total agreement that it’s time to put away the “teenage clothes” and bust out the “up and coming hot artist “wardrobe. I chose #1 as a good example of dressing for the occasion. This was a concert with other artists on the bill. So David was not the prime focus, but one of many to appear. The belt was just the right touch. A statement that he cared how he looked.

    I chose #6 next. This is about as perfect an outfit that he could wear as well as the one Bebe posted in #5.. The skinny tie with a button shirt under a well fitting leather jacket. Very nice for headlining in his concerts. He usually wears shoes that match his look, so I can’t complain there. #6 shows that with the help of a stylist, he will benefit in looking his best.

    Fit is vital. You can wear the best outfit, but if it its too long in the sleeve or pant leg, the look is lost. The sleeves in #4 were too long. It was a great coat,but lacked a good fit on David. in #5 the pants were too long, bunching up at the bottom. Realizing that he is short in stature, paying the right clothes stylist is money well spent to assure the proper fit.

    He looked amazing in the REAL shirt, totally fit right in with what he was performing.

    Because of my young ( cough) age, I’m about as far removed from deciding what a 20 yr. old what to wear as you can get. Ever tried buying your 14 to 24 yr. old grandchildren a Xmas gift of clothes? I can guarantee you they won’t like it.

    Because I’m from the north, I can’t see the point of anybody wearing a hoodie, unless they are cold or it’s raining. To me it’s just and extra clump of material riding around on your back and sloppy looking. 😕

    David doesn’t seem to have a problem in the jeans department–he wears them all way to well. 😯

    I love the strategically partially tucked in plainT-shirt /w a casual jacket that can be taken off–preferably while on stage–it would drive the girls mad ( and I do qualify there) so I vote for NO.7. For special occasions the tucked in shirt w/ dress pants to die for. 😉

    He shouldn’t wear striped T’s–too Dennis the Menace looking-nor really bold , loud plaids–remember in Alaska–he almost blended in with the table cloth. Haha

    The MJ look doesn’t work on him–and I’m not a big fan of scarves–they are too distracting from him ( they either come unwound from his neck or are just plain in the way.

    For someone who knows nothing about fashion –I could write a book. LOL

    Great article MT…I’ve been secretly hoping that the only thing David kept from his Jive/WEG days is the stylist! Guess he didn’t 😦 I too think he needs a “look” and stay with it, except w/ minor changes when the occasion calls for something different. Hate the unzipped hoodies..and tired of the Member’s Only jacket (screams ’80s) lol I picked #7 as well, but also like buttondown shirt w/ skinny tie (or one of my fave outfits was the Richmond solo tour black buttondown shirt w/ rolled up sleeves). He should definitely step it up when performing the NA when it’s televised.
    Bottom line, I guess when we know what direction his songs are going, that might define what the look should be. But David PLEASE change your Twitter pic!!! 🙂 Jeez I sound negative…sorry afterall it is all about “the voice”…just want non fans to take him seriously.

    Thanks for all the great comments guys. It’s not easy picking a favorite is it? It’s like Lays potato chips, you can’t pick just one!

    Have you guys ever noticed that your behavior changes a little with your change of outfits? When I’m dressed for work, it puts me in the right frame of mind and reminds me to be professional in all my actions. Being dressed for success gives you that extra boost of confidence that is translated to those you come in contact with. That first pic? – I think he gave one of his best performances wearing that one.

    So, random thought here: Could what he wears affect his frame of mind, and his performance? Yes? No? What do you guys think? (Or maybe I’m just crazy. Lol If I am, don’t tell me. Some things we’re better off not knowing. 😀 )

    I am for the fitted look as well, whether a tee as in #1 or a shirt (I loved the black shirt with the rolled sleeves that silverfox gave him.) I also loved the jacket over tee look in #7, (that was a fabulous photo shoot)! David also really rocks a vest or leather jacket and I like his dark jeans. He looked amazing at MoTab in a well tailored tux. David wears many looks really well and I think that tailoring is the key to looking his best in whatever outfit is appropriate for the occasion. The national anthem “outfit” with bagged out knees and sweatshirt was my least favorite. It looked like something he just threw on that morning. Maybe he thought he would be wearing a team shirt? Anyway, he is a simply gorgeous young man and I want people to appreciate just how great looking he is when they listen to that amazing voice. People are more likely to appreciate him and give him the respect he deserves if he looks sharp. He is the whole package, voice, looks, and an incredible human being.

    Hoping for at least one new cover song. I doubt we will get any of the new songs as they are meant for Asian debut. The Asian tour edition Cd is a blessing to fans. It shows that IT IS good music and someone took over the distribution and invested in David’s talent. The songs are all perfection IMHO. I am pleased as punch to know that it has support a year later.

    Good things come to those who wait.

    I listened to the song thanks to Bebe. She called me at work and I heard it in my headset plugged into my phone. My first reaction was it was in a similar vocal range as SBL and Elevator. I hope he can lower it a tad so he won’t strain his voice.

    This from Neonlimelight…buzzzzzz!

    Soaring ballads are totally David Archuleta‘s thing. And, thankfully, he has a new one to croon your eardrums into sweet heavenly bliss with in the form of his new song “Everything And More.”

    The piano-laced tune finds David exercising the range of his golden voice; it’s silky and buttery throughout most of it, but he gets gorgeously belty by the end.

    Archie is also exercising his songwriter’s pen with “Everything And More.” He co-wrote the song with Grammy-winning songwriter Victoria Horn.

    Exclusive: First interview with David Archuleta after leaving record label

    by David Burger

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    “In his first interview since David Archuleta and Jive Records parted ways in February, the 20-year-old singer told The Tribune that it was a mutual decision that he move on from Jive.

    He recorded three albums of the label: his self-titled 2007 debut, which reached as high as No. 2 on the Billboard charts and spawned the hit single “Crush”; his 2009 album, “Christmas From the Heart”; and 2010’s “The Other Side of Down,” which Billboard magazine reported in February has sold only 67,000 copies, compared to 765,000 for his first album.

    Leaving Jive Records was a freeing experience, said Archuleta. “Since ‘American Idol’ I never had the time to think about what decisions need to be made,” he said. “I thought [leaving] was a great opportunity. A great new door had opened.”

    Archuleta said that he has talked to other record labels since then, but has resisted the urge to sign with any of them. “The goal this year is to take the time I need to know what I want to become.”
    Too often in the past, he said, producers would give him songs that didn’t fit his vision or voice. “I want to make my voice come through more,” Archuleta said. “I want to do songs that are more vocally driven, so I can be emotional.”

    Archuleta said he is spending his time with family and friends — though he said “No” when asked if he had a significant other — and writing songs on the piano as he figures out when his path will take him. He still wants to pursue pop, but didn’t want to be a “classical pop singer.” He has been listening a lot to Adele and The Civil Wars, the latter a country-folk duo that includes former writing partner Joy Williams.

    Immediately after the Stadium of Fire, Archuleta will embark on a short tour of Asia, where interest in him has not abated. For stateside fans, they can expect Archuleta’s 2010 Christmas-time performances with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to be released on CD and DVD Sept. 6 by Deseret Book. Singing with the Choir was a dream come true, he said. “It was a pretty overwhelming experience. It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ll ever have in my life. I was honored.”

    In the end, his faith helped guide him, he said, and he knows his fans are anxious to hear from him, with his Stadium of Fire concert being his first in Utah since his performances with the Choir. “I’ve been taking time,” he said. “I really appreciate the patience the fans have shown.””

    Here I stand in my padded outfit, which looks pretty much like a hockey goalies–ready for what ever is thrown at me, but IMO

    I’m not crazy about this song–it’s way to high and doesn’t show case his strong vocal abilities at all–sounds like he is pushing or forcing it in some places .It shows good range, but I prefer him singing in a lower key. Sometimes I think–enough with the falsetto on a lot of the songs in TOSOD. The song is weak in some places that doesn’t fit in with the rest of it. I’d really like to see him tinker with this one cause it’s a good song. I’ll bet it would sound totally different and of course we all know it’s always better live!

    I have refrained from commenting on the song because I totally agree with you. I just don’t like it very much.

Also in answer to your #69….

    EVERYTHING AND MORE

    You see a storm heading our way
    You know the cold can make things delay, up here it can’t do any harm.
    The cracks show in the concrete jungle
    Tear apart the weakest of hearts, up here you’ll be safe in my arms.
    Oh.

    I know that you’re feeling like we’re only dreaming
    Well don’t look down ’cause this is real.

    Like a satellite we’re flying
    Overhead where we see it all.
    Nothing can touch us, we’re everything and more.
    There’s no turning back from this point.
    Reaching heights like never before.
    Nothing can touch us, we’re everything, we’re everything and more.

    Let’s try holding each other, found a love to last forever.
    Up here gives you wings to stay strong, ooh.
    The air is pure that we’re breathing.
    We’re something to believe in, ’cause I feel it’s where we both belong.

    I know that you’re feeling like we’re only dreaming
    Well don’t look down ’cause this is real.

    Like a satellite we’re flying
    Overhead where we see it all.
    Nothing can touch us, we’re everything and more.
    There’s no turning back from this point.
    Reaching heights like never before.
    Nothing can touch us, we’re everything, we’re everything and more.

    Trust me this is worth not falling back to Earth.
    Everything and more is up here.

    Like a satellite we’re flying
    Overhead where we see it all.
    Nothing can touch us, we’re everything and more.

(if that can be done, not sure) Plus, I’m just a sucker for a love song. I love it when David pours his heart out on stage.

    For some reason, TOSOD has a few songs with a lot of high notes, and it looks like this song was written during that same era.

    It does make me wonder what the other 4 songs will be like.

    I am going to borrow Dakgal’s padded outfit for this comment. Its something that really got me crazy today.

    Earlier I mentioned that Bebe called me so I could hear the new song as it was played on live streaming. Then she read random tweets. It wasn’t 2 min after the song finished and people were racing to put it on YouTube or Mediafire for ILLEGAL download. All this was announced by them on twitter. I want to say it made me sick to know that “fans” were so blatantly announcing in public, where David himself or his family could observe, links to download this song.

    After about 15min of frenzy, the tweets changed to ” Hey, what your are doing is hurting David’s sales” . I felt a small amount of relief that sanity had come back to the fan base.

    All I ask is a little discretion? I am sure most that did this will buy the music when it is available, but as the sales of TOSOD showed, many more did not buy.

    Buzzzz about the new song!

    David Archuleta releases Everything And More!

    “Now this is a goddamn ballad! It has been a while since I´ve heard good music coming from an American Idol contestant but I´m pretty happy to say that David Archuleta should have won Season 7 of American Idol (ups, did I said that?… Yeah I did!).

    The new track is called Everything And More and it seems it was written a while ago when he was working on his last album but no worries, the song is good and David’s voice is just flawless on it.”

    The more I play it, the more I like it. It kinda just takes me away. Would also love to hear it in a lower key. I miss that part of his singing, where his beautiful timbre just takes your breath away.

    (I’ve wondered if that is part of the reason TOSOD didn’t do as well. It didn’t showcase his voice’s depth and richness and I think that is what many want to hear in his music.)

    “I want to do songs that are more vocally driven, so I can be emotional.”…now we’re talking baby!

    101.Abrra,
    I really don’t get how anyone can do that and call themselves a fan of David’s.Some people are just stuck on stupid.

    89. Dak, you are too funny. I won’t be throwing anything at you.I really agree with you.this>>>>>”it’s way to high and doesn’t show case his strong vocal abilities at all–sounds like he is pushing or forcing it in some places .It shows good range, but I prefer him singing in a lower key”

    I do like the song itself, but I have to say listening to it the first time, those high notes throughout kinda made my eyes water.whew!
    I like the lyrics,and Davids voice is certainly flawlessly front and center…IDK, maybe it just isn’t what I was expecting, in my head.. I think Myrtle Beach spoiled me a bit.:)

    I also prefer David’s rich lower tones. EAM is nothing like what he’s been doing live lately (MB, Invisible Children-Nashville). IMO, this song could be for the younger audience. In which case, it’s really sweet.

    Dak, he has spoiled us, hasn’t he?

    As for dressing David. I really like #7, but I’ve always had a thing for him in ties, like at #2 and in the TMH video. It gives him a look both youthful, yet with a touch of maturity. He wears those little shirts like in #1 very well too (the peeking belt).

    Good Morning All!

    Throw me in with the padded suit crowd. I like EAM, but I’m not crazy about it. I find myself waiting for his voice to crack on those high notes. I like the fact that Blackbird, GGTT, and EWTRTW are all sung in a more comfortable range for him, so I hope he is moving in that direction.

    Emme-“I miss that part of his singing, where his beautiful timbre just takes your breath away.” Yep, me too.

    Gayle-“IMO, this song could be for the younger audience. In which case, it’s really sweet.” I think you’re right. JR also mentioned somewhere that she thought this song would be huge with his Asian fans because it has the sound they love.

    Sky-“Some people are just stuck on stupid.” I’m still cleaning up the coffee I just spit out. Thanks for laugh! Unfortunately, what you said is true.

    Have a good day, everyone!

  108. I also like this song, but I have to agree that it is so high. I’m wondering if it is a rejected song from David’s DEBUT album. David’s voice has gotten lower and I think he will have trouble singing this song in this key. I also agree that when David uses his lower register his voice is so rich, caressing even and I just love that! Most of the songs I really like from TOSOD do not have the falsetto and/or really high notes. Now that David is not with a label he will be able to write/sing songs that are in his comfortable range. I believe that Jive and the writers David was writing with were pushing him to use falsetto frequently in a lot of the songs. I for one am happy that David left Jive. His core fan base is still with him, and as long
    as he tours, he will keep us as fans. Yes, he has lost some fans, but he still has a lot compared to many successful musicians that make a living by touring. Good day, everyone!

    Abrra.

    I feel your pain. I’m familiar with the RIAA rules, having learned about them when I was a fan of other artists, pre-David.

    Some fans are not aware that it’s still a crime to download new music or that the artist loses money when this occurs. If it’s there for the taking, they assume it must be okay. Others are so excited to get David’s music that they’ll do anything to get it. What’s one little song? Then it’s one little album, then two then three.

    Nobody will find out, they think. But it absolutely shows up in low record sales as we’ve seen with TOSOD.

    Until music is handed out freely online or until the laws are enforced, there’s not much we can do about it except to support David’s music and keep our policy here at The Voice of not posting links to or mp3s of his new music.

    As for the new song, I like it. It’s not one of my favorite songs by David and for me, it doesn’t rate up there with Falling Stars or Good Place but I just like hearing David’s voice in any capacity. We all know he’s going to kill it when he sings it live. It will go through a metamorphosis and become another song entirely once he gets his vocal chops on it.

    It’s funny to visualize but nobody needs a padded outfit here. Please feel comfortable to say what you feel and let’s discuss.

Not that we need the reminder, but it helps us to re-state who and what we are–Fans of David Archuleta who want nothing but the best for him and his career. I just hope that David will be able to release these new songs as singles here in this part of the world–even if they are only EP and not put in the stores (although that would be a good thing, imo).

    More buzz!

    Aceshowbiz

    A few months after David Archuleta parted ways with Jive Records, a new song from the 2008 runner-up of “American Idol” landed online. Titled “Everything and More”, the track was reportedly co-penned by him with the help from Grammy-winning songwriter Victoria Horn.

    “You see a storm heading our way/ You know the cold can make things delay, up here it can’t do any harm,” Archie croons in the piano-driven track. “The cracks show in the concrete jungle/ Tear apart the weakest of hearts, up here you’ll be safe in my arms.”

    The sweet song recently made its debut on a radio station in Singapore. Coincidentally, Archie is getting ready to go to Asia for a series of live concerts next month. His stops include Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia.

    JSYK Just So You Know

    David Archuleta Releases New Song ‘Everything and More’

    David Archuleta has been relatively quiet since the release of his third album, which came out last October, but now the ‘American Idol’ alum has unveiled a brand new song called ‘Everything and More.’

    The tune premiered on a radio station in Singapore on Tuesday, and thanks to the power of YouTube, fans all over can hear the new song, too. Although it’s not the best quality, you can hear that David is doing what he knows best: singing heartfelt ballads.

    The Miami native’s last single, ‘Falling Stars,’ was released on October 29, just a few weeks after his album, ‘The Other Side of Down,’ was unveiled. However, the 20-year-old parted ways with his record label and management in February, a decision, he says, was mutual.

    Now, in a new interview with The Salt Lake Tribune, David says he’s working on his true sound. “The goal this year is to take the time I need to know what I want to become,” he explains, adding, “I want to make my voice come through more. I want to do songs that are more vocally driven, so I can be emotional.”

    So far, so good, David. Listen to ‘Everything and More’ below and let us know what you think of the song in the comments.
    Message to Vietnam!

    Dja, from the tweets, looks like he’s wrapping it up with the 5 songs we’re gonna get. Wonder what the others will sound like. Will they be previously recorded songs that were done for TOSOD or be his “new” sound? I’m wondering if they’ll match themes or tone with TOSOD or not.

    Random thought here, but what if he put out several songs, as singles, in different styles on Itunes or Amazon to see what sold most? Is that even possible? Could he even do that? Would it be too expensive? If so, what might he do? Let’s see …

    1. Everything And More (Already determined.)

    2. Great big soaring love ballad. (That one’s for me 🙂 )

    3. Fun song with an up-tempo dance beat. (haha Ok, that one’s for me, too!)

    4. Something playful, a real teaser, with a reggae or lilting melody, like a “take-me-as-I-am”, “I-am-who-I-am” type song. (That one MIGHT be for me.)

    5. Something funky, bluesy, & soulful using that gorgeous silky lower register. (That one is for all of us.)

    Did I miss anything?

It was his first NY/NJ appearance since the Idol tour show. And some of us (ahem) didn’t have the pleasure of going to the Idol tour so the thought of seeing him on that stage right in front of us was beyond exhilarating Anyway, that ‘pink’ shirt was really red and white checked we later found out. 🙂

    He stopped singing during Barriers. Some thought he forgot the lyrics but that wasn’t it. He was so overwhelmed by the reaction of the audience.

    I honestly still think that he has no idea how much he is loved by his fans.
