BILLBOARD:  For David Archuleta, ‘Winter’ Is Coming With New Tour and Album: Listen to ‘Christmas Every Day’by Fred Bronson

Winter will officially begin at 5:22pm EST on Dec. 21. But for American Idol alum David Archuleta, it will arrive with the Nov. 2 release of his new Christmas album, Winter in the Air.

The holiday set, on Shadow Mountain Records, is Archuleta’s eighth album overall and second holiday release, following Christmas from the Heart in 2009.

“When we finished my first Christmas album, we were already talking about recording another one,” Archuleta tells Billboard. “There’s always a place for it because there are so many great Christmas songs.”

Archuleta has long been a fan of Christmas music. Growing up in Utah, his parents would take him and his siblings Christmas caroling. “I was doing that even before I could talk,” he  remembers. “We’d sing ‘Feliz Navidad,’ ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas.’”
For Winter in the Air, Archuleta turned to some classic holiday tunes and co-wrote three originals. “I always wanted to record ‘Mary, Did You Know’ and I [had] wanted ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ on my first album. ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’ is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I usually listen to the Burl Ives version. For this album, I listened to Christmas albums by Michael Bublé and Nat King Cole. My producers’ goal was to get that sound with a big reverb board to capture the classic vibes of the ’50s and ’60s.”

While most Christmas albums are recorded in the summer in order to be ready for holiday season, Archuleta started work on Winter in the Air in January, while the weather was still cold in his new hometown of Nashville. “We had to cancel the original writing session because of a snow storm,” he says. When he rescheduled with songwriters Jeremy Bose and Cindy Morgan, they wrote what would become the album’s title track. “‘Winter in the Air’ was inspired by walking outside in the wintertime with the snow crunching under your feet,” he says.

Archuleta’s next writing session, with producer Cason Cooley and songwriter Isabeau Miller, was also cancelled because of an ice storm. But when they finally got together, they wrote “He Is Born,” one of the album’s more sacred songs. “I wanted to write a song honoring and praising Christ in his birth,” says Archuleta.

Archuleta wrote the first single from the album, “Christmas Every Day,” with Cooley and Dave Barnes. “It was inspired by Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ and Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Underneath the Tree’,” he says. “Music usually comes out of me at a slow tempo but I wanted an uptempo song.” The song features backing vocals by fellow American Idol alum, Melinda Doolittle. “I had lunch one day with Melinda and Kris Allen. Then I ran into a couple of Melinda’s friends while I was salsa dancing, and then saw another friend of hers on an airplane. So week after week, Melinda was on my mind. When we needed background vocals, I thought Melinda would be up for it. It’s the first time I’ve had a friend do backing vocals for me.”

After sessions with Cooley, Archuleta headed back to Utah to work with producer John Hancock, who helmed his 2009 Christmas album. “John added a guitar loop to ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman’ and it felt very Latin to me so I started singing in Spanish.” That led to Archuleta recording Spanish versions of several songs, including “In the Bleak Midwinter,” which his aunt translated into Spanish after they failed to find a Spanish version. A four-song EP of the Spanish renditions will also be released, says Archuleta, “all thanks to John doing ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ with Spanish guitar.”

Archuleta will support the new album with a tour that begins Nov. 26 in Los Angeles and runs through Dec. 21 in Richfield, Utah. “I’ve always loved being on the road, ever since my dad took me to California when I was 11,” he replied. “When I’m out on the road, I get to interact with fans again. It’s different from the social media experience. You can see how music changes their demeanors.”

It’s been 10 years since Archuleta competed on season seven of American Idol as a 17-year-old, a decade where he’s grown from a boy to a man. “When I was on American Idol I was still in high school and was just getting to the beginning of adulthood. Now I’m an adult. I have found my voice and I say what I’m thinking. Taking that two-year break to be a missionary helped me gain independence. I was submissive before. Now I put more importance on myself. Ten years ago I didn’t know if I wanted a music career. I thought I was going to finish high school and college and then figure out what I was going to do for a living. Now I understand why I want to do music and where I want to take my life. I always handed things over to other people. Now I am the master of my own life.”

From The Idaho State Journal

David Archuleta to perform in Pocatello on Friday

By Courtney Johnson cjohnson@journalnet.com

POCATELLO — Pop star David Archuleta will perform at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre on Friday night.

The gates open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets for Friday’s performance can be purchased at smithstix.com.

Archuleta found his fame at age 16 when he was the runner-up on the seventh season of “American Idol.

Archuleta didn’t always have plans to become a music artist. Throughout his childhood, he wanted to be zookeeper, a dentist and even a social worker. Even though he kept changing his mind, he always knew that he wanted to connect to people in some way.

Obviously, Archuleta didn’t become a zookeeper or a social worker, but he was able to find a special way of interacting with others.

“Music is way to connect with people,” Archuleta said. “I’ve always wanted to connect with people, to tell stories and hear peoples stories, and I get to do that through writing songs.”

Last month, Archuleta released his latest EP, Orion. The Orion EP has four new songs that were inspired by events in his life that left an impression on him.

“This new music is basically written from my journey of the last several years of my life,” Archuleta said. “From becoming an artist and performing on ‘American Idol’ to touring and making albums to then doing a complete 180 turn by going to South America to be a missionary, I have this new perspective on life and I’ve written about it.”

Archuleta plans to release one more EP before he releases a full album later this year. By releasing two EPs, he is able to get a feel for how his fans will react to his new music.

“I want my fans to like the music, but I also want to see how they feel about the story and message,” Archuleta said. “I am trying to get a feel of how people will respond and react.”

When Archuleta isn’t touring and writing music, he admits to sometimes wasting too much time watching videos on YouTube like Studio C. He also loves to find new restaurants on Yelp and try them out with friends and family.

Since his run on “Idol,” Archuleta has released seven of his own albums including an appearance as a guest star on The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s holiday album, “David Archuleta — Glad Christmas Tidings.”

“I seriously love food,” Archuleta said.

Archuleta is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and likes to show his fans all facets of his life from spiritual moments he has throughout the day to which new restaurant he recently tried out.

“My religion helps shape how I live my life and it helps give me so much fulfillment and happiness so I had to learn how to be open about all aspects of my life,” Archuleta said.

At his performance, Archuleta will perform a number of his older songs that fans will know along with some of his newer music. He will also throw in a few cover songs from famous artists throughout the last few decades.

“I want people to feel good when they listen to my music,” Archuleta said. “But I also want them to feel like they can connect to something deeper, like a deeper version of themselves and a deeper part of life. That’s really the purpose of this new music being released.”

David Archueta to Showcase New  Music in Pocatello

By Erin Burke

David Archuleta is coming back to Idaho for a concert, featuring Nathan Pacheco.

They will be performing in Pocatello at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre on Friday, June 16 at 8 p.m.

On Wednesday, two days before the concert in Pocatello, he was enjoying his day off by traveling and resting at truck stops. For weeks, he said he has been practicing his songs on a daily basis with very few breaks.

Archuleta’s newest EP, Orion, was released on May 19, according to davidarchuleta.com. He said he plans to perform some well-known songs from his previous projects and old albums, songs from his new EP and a new song which has not been released yet.

“The song I’ll be singing that I haven’t released yet is a preview of what is yet to be released,” Archuleta said.

He said he is releasing his next EP within a month or so, then he is releasing an album later this year.

Archuleta said he wants to come closer to God through his tour, so he likes to start every concert and writing session with a prayer.

“I remember one time a (songwriter said) that with the twenty years (he’s) been in the business, (he’s) never started a writing session with a prayer,” Archuleta said. “He said that was special.”

He then asked the writer if he wanted to say a prayer to end the session. He said the writer said he did not think he knew how to pray. Archuleta said he told him to say what was in his heart.

“He bowed his head, and he just started talking to God and thanking Him,” Archuleta said. “Afterwards, he was like, ‘I have goosebumps.’”

One of Archuleta’s greatest motivations for creating his new music has been the experiences he has had over the past seven years of his life.

Archuleta said, “After coming back from my mission in Chile, I had such a new perspective on everything.”

Orion, in specific, is a showcase of the perspective he has gained over the years.

He said these new songs are full of things he wants people to know. He has hopes that his songs will inspire people to stay strong because there have been times when he has felt not good enough or not known how to move forward.

Archuleta said he thinks those at BYU-Idaho may feel like they are not good enough and that his songs from Orion will help students to remember their worth. Sometimes students feel pressured to be perfect and that they cannot show any weakness because Christ said to be perfect.

“Christ said to be whole, to be complete,” Archuleta said. “He didn’t say that you can’t be flawed.”

Archuleta said he is coming to Pocatello because he has been there before and enjoyed connecting with audience members of the southeastern Idaho region.

“I want people to leave feeling better and lighter—feeling better about themselves and feeling motivated to keep moving forward in life,” Archuleta said.

Archuleta’s first single “Crush,” debuted at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week the singe released. Archuleta’s first album, “David Archuleta,” went gold, and sold more than 750,000 copies in the U.S. and more than 900,000 copies worldwide.

David Archuleta ~ New Single “Up All Night” Available “NOW” on all Digital Formats! Up All Night Buzz all around!

Posted by djafan on Thursday, April 20, 2017

David Posted an official audio youtube with the lyrics!

***LYRICS***

I am knocking standing at your door
Somewhere new I’ve never been before
Take me in and it feels like home
It’s getting late and I don’t want to go

Something simple in the way this feels
Like love is something pure and real
It’s getting late and I have to leave
But tonight your memory is holding me

I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
Pictures that cross my mind

They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
Keeping me up all night

See my heart and there’s an answered prayer
Feel the magic in the midnight air
Breathe it in I want to pass it on
The strength of finding somewhere you belong

I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
Pictures that cross my mind

They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
Keeping me up all night

Here so small but I am safe and sound
Where I stand it feels like solid ground
No where else that I’d rather be
No greater gift than what you’ve given me

All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside

David Archuleta shares his jamming session to snippet of Up All Night!  I confess, I was driving and had to pull over 🙂

David Archuleta gave People Magazine an interview.

David Archuleta has new music out!

The American Idol alum, 26, premiered his latest song, “Up All Night,” on Tuesday, one month ahead of the release of his new EP, Orion.

“‘Up All Night’ came from when I was having a really rough month trying to see how I could make a statement and prove myself and was getting nowhere,” Archuleta shares with PEOPLE.

The singer retreated into nature for some songwriting inspiration.

“A family living in rural Tennessee invited me over to go fishing at their pond. None of the kids even had smartphones at the time. They took me in and when I got home I realized I felt whole again,” Archuleta reveals. “I was so confused with what happened that I couldn’t sleep. I had to get out what I was feeling so I went to the keyboard and recorded the verse and chorus with some lyrics that night.”

Archuleta’s retrospective lyrics represent the mix of self-reflection and pop melodies that fans can look forward to hearing on his new EP.

Orion is the first in a series of EP’s that I have been working on since returning from a two year mission in Chile,” he tells PEOPLE. “I’ve co-written all of the songs, and they they tell the journey of where I have been and where I am heading.”

 “Up All Night” follows-up the EP’s lead single, “Numb,” which premiered last November. Earlier this month, Archuleta debuted the artwork for Orion on social media, also sharing that the album would be available on May 19.

And some background on the writing of Up All Night!

And then there’s David Archuleta. I remember the first time we met, he’d come from church, and a wonderful friend of ours, who we’d written with a few times said she’d met him at church and had invited him to write with us. “Sure,” I thought, knowing how Nashville is, and that David would almost definitely be a no-show. But he showed. And we wrote. At first, it was awkward and clunky- like any first date might be (writing date that is)- and before we knew it, we had a verse and chorus. And I looked in his eyes. “You hate this, don’t you?” I said to the near stranger, who was quiet, even when he sang, even though he was a pop star around the world. He looked at me wide eyed, not wanting to say he did, but I knew he did. “We’re throwing it out.” I said. And we did. We started a new song. We finished the new song. And it was good. At the end of the day, he asked me how I knew, and I said, “I just watched you. I just tried to see what you were feeling.” I think that was the day that cemented our friendship, and songs just followed, because, when your friends with a lot on your hearts, and you create, it feels like it’s a disservice to your calling to not allow the songs in. But every time we wrote with David, I wondered if he felt what I hoped he’d felt: Heard. I never felt like it was my job to write with David, because, remember- I’m not “enough” or anything- certainly not a writer- to qualify as one. I felt it was my job to facilitate his ability to write. One of the songs we wrote is being released- tomorrow- as a single from his EP, and people are hearing it. I’ve watched on Twitter as people quote lines that fell out of my mouth, or David’s heart, or Shaun’s playing, and I think “Oh my God…this is the power of art.” But I’m not writer enough for this… I’m not writer enough to get a publishing deal in Nashville, and if I’m not writer enough for that, I’m not writer enough for this…  Read here!

So much stuff!  I love love Up All Night and so does everyone I have shared it with!  And to top it all off David graces us with a facebook live vlog!!!!  19 wonderful minutes 🙂
