David Archuleta released his new single “Up All Night” last month, And now the singer drops the official music video.
After the American Idol season 7 runner-up returned from an LDS mission in Chile in 2014, the experience transformed him so much, that he realized he needed to do some soul-searching as far as his musical career was concerned.
In the behind the scenes clip for the “Up All Night” music video, David describes the breakthrough he experienced that led to the creation of the new song:
The song began a couple of years ago. I was up all night, but for a different reason,’cause I was lost and confused and wondering where I was going in my life. This family invited me to go out to rural Tennessee, away from everything, and go fishing and to spend time with them outside. Suddenly in this simple place, I found myself. I found the motivation and inspiration. I found a piece of identity of myself that I was missing. It was all that I needed to keep going. That same night, I was up all night and I had to get it out somehow. The way I knew how to do that was going to the piano. Out came this melody, out came these words. I know you’ve all been hearing my voice, but I feel like I haven’t really had the chance to say what I have to say. Now I feel that my voice, is actually being heard–in a way for the first time.
The video itself tells a joyous story about people helping each other find their way–literally pulling each other out of the shadows. Bonus: David shows off some pretty nifty dance moves. Watch the inspirational music video for “Up All Night” below.
