American Idol season 7 alum David Archuleta releases his brand new pop single “Paralyzed” today (Aug 27). “Paralyzed” is the first new music from David since 2017’s “Postcards In The Sky” release. Fans are eager for the song to drop–David has been performing “Paralyzed” live on tour.  The video for “Paralyzed,” directed by Brian Petchers (Meghan Trainor, Sena, Wiz Khalifa) was shot in Brooklyn, NY at a historic home from the 1700’s called The Lott House. The clip features dancers, Carrie Keating, Blair Ely, Nora Laitinen, Keanna Faulkner and Cat Grey.

“Paralyzed was a bit of a venting song. I get frustrated watching myself hesitate so much, and not let go of things from the past that I know I should. A lot of those past things are fears, anger, resentment, and I see how they all form excuses in my mind of why I can’t move forward. I watch as missed opportunities fly by and I just do nothing, because I freeze. It gets me so frustrated! This song is the battle with those paralyzing thoughts and I intend to be the victor,” David shares about his new song.
