David Archuleta to release new album on March 26, 2013
American Idol international singing sensation Elder David Archuleta will be releasing an album titled “No Matter How Far” on March 26, 2013.
David has been busy recording in the studio for the past few months and I am… um… wait… isn’t he in Chile as a missionary? How was he able to record this thing?
Oh wait… unreleased material old and “new.” Personally I want new stuff. I don’t like living in the past.
From David Archuleta:
American Idol runner up and pop sensation David Archuleta is set to release his new studio album “No Matter How Far” on March 26, 2013.
David is currently serving a two-year mission in South America for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “No Matter How Far” features a mix of new recorded material and previously unreleased U.S. tracks. The first single, “Don’t Run Away”, produced by British music producers The Nexus (David Sneddon and James Bauer-Mein), will be serviced to the AC Radio format in February.
David reached second place on the seventh season (2008) hit show American Idol as one of the youngest to perform on the show at age 16. He released his self-titled debut album the following year. Both the album and its lead single “Crush” peaked at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and the Billboard Hot 100 charts, respectively. “Crush” went on to sell over 2 million downloads. David has since released the albums “Christmas From The Heart”, “The Other Side of Down”, and the covers album “BEGIN.”. He was the featured vocalist on the Mormon Tabernacle Choirs’ “Glad Christmas Tidings” album and PBS Special in 2011, and released “Forevermore” an album of Filipino standards in the Philippines in 2012.
“No Matter How Far” will be released on Entertainment One.
Got Something to Add?
I don't know why I'm not excited over this. Maybe because I want new stuff,not old unreleased stuff. Oh well. I hope the songs are catchy though.
We were expecting a song and were all super surprised to find out we were getting another album!! David's amazing. He worked so hard to record and plan so his fans would get nice things while he's on his mission. And his management and business friends have worked hard to make it happen in his absence. We know for sure it will have a song Victoria Horne wrote with David - she says it's her favorite song she wrote with him though it didn't make it onto an album until now. I look forward to the album. So far Amazon and WOWHD have preorders (WOWHD ships to a large list of countries and their shipping is free though sometimes slow).
