I LOVE THE VIBE, HIS VOICE, THE COOL TWINKLY AFFECTS, HIS VOICE, THE BEAT, THE STORY I PICTURE IN MY MIND WHEN IT’S PLAYING, HIS VOICE, THE SNAPPY SNAPS, THE “OH OH OH OH OH OH OH OH OHs,” THE TITLE, IMAGINING HOW AWESOME IT WILL BE LIVE, HIS VOICE, HOW MY ARMS WANT TO FLY INTO THE AIR…
HOW ABOUT YOU GUYS??????
Dude did a 20 minute rambling FB live chat yesterday… YOU THINK HE MIGHT’VE MENTIONED IT’D BE ON SOUNDCLOUD TODAY! #oy
Eh, it’s alright. (joking!) I FREAKIN LOVE IT!! He just needs to choreograph some dance moves to perform with it live, and I can die happy. Or he can groove out to it and do hair flips. Not gonna complain! This song has to make it on to radio! This is a different Archuleta. Take note world!
TAKE . NOTE . WORLD!!!!!
I LOVE THIS!!!
I know, isn’t it awesome? Way to go David!!
Well done David!!!!
What an awesome song!!
Eeeeep and hurray!!
The things he can do with his voice!
CAN NOT WAIT for the live version!!!!
Wow, great song, good job David! Different than what I thought it might be but even better. Very catchy song and yes, he always does amazing things with his vocals. This needs to be heard for sure. Not a love song yet definitely a love song.
“Breathe it in, I wanna pass it on. The strength of finding somewhere you belong.”
Yep, this will be great live too!
It’s an ear worm all right. The tune and lyrics go through my head when I’m not listening to it. Of course I’ve actually listened to it numerous times. Way better than I anticipated. Yep, I’m hoping for dance moves too. I wonder what the music video will be like.
I LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Loved reading about Chelsy’s fan journey HERE.
So two questions come to mind… I wonder when this “tough month” was that he was having?
… and what do you think “trying to see how I could make a statement and prove myself and was getting nowhere” means?
My guess is that the tough month was shortly after he moved to Nashville, and he was lonely. This family invited him over and made him feel at home. He enjoyed the pond, rural setting and had fun with this family. He couldn’t sleep and wrote a song!
The “making a statement and prove himself” would probably be in his songwriting. Maybe wanting to prove he could make a statement in a song after his “break”. I could be way off though.
that sounds about right, Grammyj… I wonder if it was around the time he posted this:
For sure! Later in the summer he took his mother and sister there to swim. Also, his writing partners went there to write the song with him.
Oh my! I know I’m a fanatic fan… in saying that, it could cloud my judgment a little…but I LOVE “Up All Night”! David, David, David! That VOICE!
I HAVE to find a way to be at one of his upcoming performances! Like so many of us, I hope he has a show somewhere a bit closer to me!
“Dude did a 20 minute rambling live FB chat…”…RIGHT??? Lol it’s no big deal…why mention the song would be out 🙄😳. Haha I’m totalling loving this new David…who knew he’d ever be doing hair flips (((((dies)))) 💕💕
Awesome sums it up!!!!
lovely, heartfelt blog from Isabeau Miller here:
With this about writing with David:
And then there’s David Archuleta. I remember the first time we met, he’d come from church, and a wonderful friend of ours, who we’d written with a few times said she’d met him at church and had invited him to write with us. “Sure,” I thought, knowing how Nashville is, and that David would almost definitely be a no-show. But he showed. And we wrote. At first, it was awkward and clunky- like any first date might be (writing date that is)- and before we knew it, we had a verse and chorus. And I looked in his eyes. “You hate this, don’t you?” I said to the near stranger, who was quiet, even when he sang, even though he was a pop star around the world. He looked at me wide eyed, not wanting to say he did, but I knew he did. “We’re throwing it out.” I said. And we did. We started a new song. We finished the new song. And it was good. At the end of the day, he asked me how I knew, and I said, “I just watched you. I just tried to see what you were feeling.” I think that was the day that cemented our friendship, and songs just followed, because, when your friends with a lot on your hearts, and you create, it feels like it’s a disservice to your calling to not allow the songs in. But every time we wrote with David, I wondered if he felt what I hoped he’d felt: Heard. I never felt like it was my job to write with David, because, remember- I’m not “enough” or anything- certainly not a writer- to qualify as one. I felt it was my job to facilitate his ability to write. One of the songs we wrote is being released- tomorrow- as a single from his EP, and people are hearing it. I’ve watched on Twitter as people quote lines that fell out of my mouth, or David’s heart, or Shaun’s playing, and I think “Oh my God…this is the power of art.” But I’m not writer enough for this… I’m not writer enough to get a publishing deal in Nashville, and if I’m not writer enough for that, I’m not writer enough for this…
Thanks for posting this and the link to Isabeau’s blog. I recommend that everyone read the whole thing. It is beautifully written and captures how I’m sure most of us feel – being inadequate and not quite fitting in. The part about David that I liked best was this ” I felt it was my job to facilitate his ability to write. One of the songs we wrote is being released- tomorrow- as a single from his EP, and people are hearing it.

and go leave a comment here, if you can:
MJ called it “upbeat” and “soulful”… wow! 🙂
What a great read Isabeau’s blog is!!!
Love what she said about helping David… so glad she could “read” him!
What she has to say is very relatable, for me anyway!
Adoring UAN more and more! What a great song!😊❤️
this is a site in the U.K., cool!

This!…”a delicious and harmonious pop gem wrapped with some dreamy vocals and emotional lyrics.” Yep, that about sums it up for me, too! 🙂
Love buying David’s music (and gifting it) and his new song is so good! Great feedback, hope D see’s all the good comments about it.
Thanks for the links to the articles, glad that David works with some sensitive, good people who can relate to his feelings and what he wants to express. Yes, he does have dreamy vocals with delicious, harmonious, emotional sounds, for sure. Loved his little message from Alaska. 🙂
just saw that now, love it!
and this, awwww
Orion snippets for the 4 EP songs (Numb, Up All Night, Invincible and Say Me) up on Amazon!
I like what I hear on the snippet of Invincible, and am so glad Say Me is included on this EP. I just love that song and can’t wait to hear a production quality recording of it.
Loving Up All Night! Upbeat jam yet so beautiful!
Love the ending, and how the oo-ooo’s fade and the yeah, yeah’s in the background come to the foreground, so cool!
Would be a great song for So You Think You Can Dance!
Is SYTYCD still on?? that would be perfect!
Yes it was renewed for another season. It would be great if someone would dance to it on that show. I did see a tweet from a girl that was choreographing a dance to it already.
the official audio YouTube… which is great for media outlets that want to preview the song for peeps… I hope they do!!!! (a lyric vid would be great so we can fill in that missing word, hahahaha)
