David Archuleta: “I’m very excited to share the message of this album.” – In terms of what’s next for you when it comes to releasing new music, how is the new music going to be different than what you have released in the past? – I’m trying to make it more pop. I feel like now I have found out how to be myself, what really matters to me and I want to try to make it fresh now. More of that fresh pop vibe that’s going on now. That’s what I’m trying to do with this [new] album. They will feel the messages that I did with Postcards In The Sky, but it will be more pop. I never really focused on relationships and love songs before and I feel like I’ve allowed myself to open up back to that again. I’ve just been doing a lot therapy for the past year and a half and I’ve written a lot about that too. – Read more at UnitedByPop

Song You Need to Know: Austin Jenckes, ‘Fat Kid’ – Austin Jenckes knows firsthand what it feels like to be the outcast. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, the reflective country singer was made fun of for his size throughout middle school. “I was 180 pounds in 8th grade,” he says. “When we picked teams at recess, I wasn’t allowed to be on the boys team. I hated that.” Jenckes, a fifth-season contestant on The Voice, channels that isolation — and his eventual transformation into a popular high-school football player — in his vulnerable new ballad, “Fat Kid.” Grammy-winning songwriter Lori McKenna sings harmony on the track, which she co-wrote with Jenckes’ former roommate Neil Mason of Southern-rock trio the Cadillac Three. It’s the only song on Jenckes’ upcoming album, If You Grew Up Like I Did, that Jenckes didn’t write himself, but he found McKenna’s demo too irresistible to ignore. – Read more at Rolling Stone
