ETA: The video from My Fox Utah is up HERE.
David Archuleta, is in Salt Lake City with the rest of the Top 10 Idols to perform two shows at the E center today and tomorrow.
David and his father, Jeff appeared on Fox 13’s Good Day Utah this morning, where he was interviewed and performed Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” in the studio.
I’m pulling a You Tube video of the audio from comments, and posting it, after the jump, for your listening pleasure.
About the album and the release date, David said:
When asked how many songs he’s recorded for his new album, David said he wasn’t sure.
“You can record like a hundred songs and use a certain amount, ” he said, adding that he’s also trying to do some songwriting as well.
In an interview with the Deseret News Sunday, Jeff Archuleta said rumors about a CD release date are premature at best.
Listen to his performance after the Jump…
I took a listen, and if I’m being perfectly honest, I’m not feeling “Crazy” sung as a ballad–at all. The whole “You are making me completely NUTS” vibe from the original song seems lost in translation here. This was the problem I had with Archie on the show: He not experienced enough to imbue real feeling into a song about complex emotions. In a few years, maybe. But not right now. YMMV, of course.
He does manage to hit “Waiting for the World to Change” right out of the ballpark. Vocally, he’s in fine form on both songs.
