Hello everyone! Sorry about the seeming lateness of this post, but I have been very busy with classes this quarter! Let's cut to the chase.
David Archuleta, Archie, Elder Archuleta, that guy from American Idol season 7, however you know him, has a brand new album of original songs that came out on March 26, 2013!! Yes, he is still on a mission, but being the wonderful person that he is, he has planned more surprises than us fans can ever hope for before his departure. When Kari, his manager, announced this through his official twitter on January 31st, I was having a quick lunch and hurrying off to prepare for a presentation for English class when I received the tweet. Let me tell you, it was very difficult to hold in the spazzing and my nervousness regarding the presentation until class was over. According to David's official website, the album will include songs previously unreleased (officially in the U.S. I think) and NEW RECORDED MATERIAL!!! *SPAZZZZ* ASKJKDFJHEGK;LJFGH.
Anyways, the single off the new album is "Don't Run Away", which became available on iTunes and Amazon on February 12. You can listen to the whole song on the SoundCloud player below:
1. Nothing Else Better To Do
2. Everything And More
3. Don’t Run Away
4. Tell Me
5. Love Don’t Hate
7. Heart Falls Out (only song new to me*)
8. Notice Me
9. I’ll Never Go
*track 1 was a Japanese bonus track for The Other Side of Down (2010).
*tracks 2, 5, 6, 8 were previously released in The Other Side of Down: Asian Tour Edition.
*track 3 was leaked around November 2012 and is the current single.
