David Archuleta is getting ready to release new music! On April 21, his long-awaited single “Up All Night” comes out on digital platforms.
And now, the American Idol 7 singer is gearing up for the May 19th release of Orion, the first in a series of new EPs. Check out the cover art, revealed via twitter, below. More information from David’s website, which describes the inspiration for the singer’s new music:
Inspired by lessons learned during his two-year missionary trip to Chile, “Numb” — the EP’s lead single, which premiered last November via Billboard — sets the tone for Orion’s mix of self-reflection and pop melody. The song was co-written by Archuleta, Trent Dabbs, and producer Jamie Kenney. “People really want to connect with what’s coming from someone’s heart, from their soul, and what they’re going through,” he tells Billboard. “I feel like [“Numb”] was that for me.”
Archuleta and Kenney teamed up for Orion’s follow-up single, too, co-writing “Up All Night” with Isabeau Miller and Shaun Balin. The song makes its debut on April 21st, roughly one month before the EP’s release.
Archuleta will support Orion’s arrival with a tour of the west coast and southwestern markets, kicking off with his June 1st appearance at the State Theatre in Red Bluff, California. A full list of performance dates is below.
Orion unveils Archuleta’s new sound, mixing his melodies and muscular vocals with stories about his life and recent experiences. It’s not his first album as an adult, but it may be his first truly adult album. Like the constellation that gives the EP its name, Orion burns brightly.
West Coast Tour Kicks Off June 1. For dates and ticket information, check out David’s official website.
