Happy Thanksgiving weekend, fellow Canucks!


I love this time of year.

The air is crisp, the leaves are changing colour, and brand spanking new David Archuleta music is on the horizon. Oh, and Canadians from coast to coast to coast are giving thanks… for a long weekend.

For other things too, but mostly for the long weekend. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜

I just preordered Postcards in the Sky on iTunes and got the instant download of Other Things in Sight and Seasons.




OTIS Iโ€™ve been in love with from Day One, but Seasons was a revelation.

I almost instantly started to tear up. The poignancy in his voice, those harmonies with Madilyn Paige, the tender lyrics… gah, instant floodgates.

Donโ€™t get me wrong, I love the profound themes of Davidโ€™s new music so far, but thereโ€™s something about sharing whatโ€™s going on in your heart and personal relationships through song that touches me deeply.

Or, I could be totally off-base… maybe the song is simply about his favourite tree being cut down during pruning โ€œseason.โ€

Whatever itโ€™s about, I love it, just when I thought Iโ€™d heard his voice do all it can do, this song brings out new textures and tenderness… even the exhales on the ends of phrases are deeply moving to me.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things…

…and I add to that long list: David, his incredible new music, his blow-your-mind concerts, the lovely and ever-patient Kari, the generous David fans who share so much with us, and all you lovely folks who hang out here from time to time … each and every one of your comments, tweets, etc. really do make my day!

Peace & love to all!!!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

    TOfan, I can’t wait for the new album. I’m embarrassed to say how many times I have listened to the longer snippet of Seasons today. I hope I can get a physical copy of the album. I’m from Newfoundland and our record store closed , so unless Walmart has it I’m out of luck. Maybe Deseret book store will have it and I can order it from there. Anyway, really looking forward to new music , new tour and new fan videos.

      Moelita, didnโ€™t know you were from Newfoundland, how cool! Did you preorder on iTunes and get the Seasons download??

      • Moelita says:

        My iTunes is bonkers since I bought a new computer. I have ordered stuff from Amazon so I will probably download it from there. I am technology challenged though, so it may be an adventure. I just love David’s voice. All his cds have been available at Walmart so as long as it is released to retail outlets I should be able to get it. I just bought a new car and it doesn’t have a cd player so I have to figure out how to put my music onto a stick anyway.

    I’m off to pre-order a brand new David Archuleta album!!

    Moelita…. you can bet that I would ship you a physical copy of this album…. once we find out which stores carry it. โ™ฅ

    Love ‘Seasons’, so sensitive and beautiful with wonderful harmonies. So looking forward to this album. “maybe the song is simply about his favourite tree being cut down during pruning โ€œseason.โ€ Ha, well whatever David is singing about there is never a lack of emotion.
    I will definitely want a physical CD too, I heard they will be available at his concerts but I am hoping we’ll be able to order them from somewhere too, if not available locally.
    Thanks TOfan, wishing you and all ‘canucks’ out there a very Happy Thanksgiving weekend! There truly is much to be grateful for.

    Seasons – poignant, beautiful. A song I think pretty much everyone can relate
    to at some point in their lives. Even though I’m always a bit partial to David solo
    I really like this, their voices are beautiful together.

    Happy Thanksgiving Archie Canadians! Before I turn 60, I hope to visit your picturesque country ๐Ÿ™‚

    Something must be happening to iTunes. Like Moelita, mine has not been working for months. I mean it can play my library but when I tried pre-ordering stuff — I submit my order, click DONE and nothing happens. Just stays there in that same screen forever. Heh! If nothing still happens today, I’ll just go to Amazon.

    13 more days till I see @DavidArchie again ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy Thanksgiving !!! Just wondering if your traditional meal is like ours?
    Seasons is just beautiful and heart wrenching. I wonder who he’s singing about.

    • Grammyj says:

      He probably won’t tell us. I love David singing harmony. He can do it geniusly with anyone, even himself on his album cuts. I love when he sang harmony with Brooke White on her album song, “Cherry Lane”.

      We have turkey with all the fixings!!
      And pumpkin pie ! Yum!

    Very nice announcement from David to his fans in Peru. Happy for them, patiently waiting, I’m sure and I know David will have a great time too! Yes, looks like he’s all packed, haha.
    Will the next announcement be for an Alberta show? ๐Ÿ™‚
