David Archuleta Album Update

I'm psyched to report that David Archuleta has announced that his sophomore album Other Side Of Down (I love Pixar too, Dave! lol) comes out on September 14th! The first single "Something 'Bout Love" (cover art to the left) will be available on iTunes July 20th, the same date you will be able to pre-order Other Side Of Down on David's official site. Speaking of the single, this album news comes at the perfect time because just today, I listened to "Something 'Bout Love" in my car for the first time (car speakers >>> laptop speakers) & was almost late for work because I just HAD to put it on repeat for a hot second! I love it!! I especially love that David went in a direction that isn't exactly what some may have anticipated (see: me) & shattered all expectations yet again! No wonder his fans are still so incredibly supportive & voted him Best "American Idol" Ever..!

So agree with your write up but I'm not surprised at this first single from the CD. David is eclectic. His first CD proved that. He sold a 3-song fanpack including an upbeat song called Zero Gravity. Check it out. But I agree that we are in for a great CD "Other Side of Down" with more expectations or pre-conceived notions being shattered. And I thought EXACTLY what you did about the Pixar reference!

"Something 'Bout Love" is a great song! As a fan of David's, I wasn't really surprised by it, as I know him to be very diverse in his musical interest, taste and talent. However, I'm pleased that he put out something that will catch the attention of those who may not be listening! And I love the name of his cd - "Other Side of Down." This is such a reflection of David and his philosophy on life and the way he lives. What a gift he is!

Great review! I can't get enough of Something 'Bout Love...fantastic beat and melody...right in there with today's music. Album release and new tour can't come soon enough!

I believe in anything David Archuleta does. He is a very smart young man musically and personally. He has his heart and mind in the right place.

I definately CANNOT say the same for any other artist out there - they just don't come even close.

The single is very catchy and is what today's radio listeners are used to. At the same time "Something Bout Love" has a great message which is very important to David. He cares about his music and the message it delivers to his fans.

I am very excited about the name of the Album "The Other Side of Down". It's so possitive, it's so David. This could only mean that the tracks are going to be amazing, lyrically and of course vocally.

David's new single "Something Bout Love" is amazing...I've been streaming it every night. I can't wait for it to hit the radio waves. I totally know about blasting David's music in the car -- I do that every day. David is such a talented singer/ songwriter...I just know his album is gong to be awesome! I'm super excited about purchasing the single when it's released next Tues 7/20!

Great article. Like thousands of David fans I can't wait until his new CD is released on Sept 14. His new single "Somthing 'Bout Love" is a new avenue for David but one that showcases his amazing vocals perfectly. I'm hoping for a very long fall tour to promote the "Other Side of Down".

This is a terrific choice for his new single as it portrays his gorgeous VOICE and also gets the message to us; as he wants us all to understand. I dig that!
