.davidarchie is ready to let go of his inhibitions by simply having fun with the music he creates. Get an exclusive listen of his new single 'OK, All Right' below
David Archuleta debuted his new single, "OK, All Right," with Billboard on March 26. The song uncovers the internal struggle he has faced over the years. Listen.. As Archuleta recognizes himself, though, his last project was more about helping others strengthen and validate themselves by finding their voice and getting the help they need. This time around, he wants fans to know,"This is what’s been going on with me." The key component of Archuleta's journey to"OK, All Right" is therapy, as it helped him realize all of the stress and anger he had been internalizing. He's been doing sessions for the past five years, along the way becoming more comfortable with opening up about his mental health both in song and on stage. "With Postcards , there was so much of my own story to tell," Archuleta says."My management at the time was like, 'You’re talking too much -- you just need to sing, because that’s why people are coming to your shows.' But after [shows] I would ask [fans], 'What stood out to you?' And the majority of the time people would say, 'It was when you said That completely changed my career for me -- how I experienced shows, performing, singing and songwriting." Archuleta faced a similar limitation after he was on American Idol (he was runner-up to David Cook on season seven in 2008), which stunted his ability to be vulnerable through his music -- before he even really understood what that meant." The label was like, 'Yeah, you sang these nice songs on American Idol , but we want you to be a pop star,'” he recalls."I never fully processed that. I didn’t know what I wanted to say, because I didn’t have anything to say." Now, Archuleta has more than enough to share with fans, and he's ready to connect with them on an even deeper level with his next LP. But as"OK, All Right" indicates, Archuleta is also ready to let go of his inhibitions by simply having fun with the music he creates -- something he's been longing to do since the beginning. "When I first started [singing], all I knew was that I liked to sing, it made me feel good, and it made me feel understood," Archuleta says." I’ve realized I still feel more fulfilled when I connect to why I started singing in the first place. I can have peace, I can have fun, but I can be honest -- and have the combination of all that, rather than just go after the catchiest, poppiest, trendiest thing. I just feel more relaxed, and back into who I am." Listen to"OK, All Right," premiering on Billboard Read more: billboard
