…Meanwhile, David, still just 19, took time out of his busy schedule Tuesday to talk to Idol Chatter about his new album…

Idol Chatter: I interviewed you last December and, at that time, you said you wanted to put more of yourself in the second album. Do you feel like you accomplished that, and why?

David: I do, actually. I am actually really happy about that. The lyrics are just a lot more in tune with who I am as a person. I think (they will allow) a lot of people to connect with the more thoughtful and the lighter, goofier side of me….

New David Bio!
from DavidArchuleta.com
21 September 2010

With budding maturity, David Archuleta captures two years’ worth of introspection and reflection, dozens of songwriting sessions, long days spent in the studio and nights in the air, all leading to The Other Side of Down, his highly anticipated second album. Not only the follow up to David’s 2008 self-titled debut, it’s a reintroduction to the American Idol runner-up with the angelic voice who 30 million television viewers fell in love with during season 7—now older, wiser, with faith still on his side and an eternally optimistic wide-eyed outlook. Hence, the album’s title. “For me, it’s about moving forward and making progress,” David explains. “I’m heading towards ‘the other side of down,’ which is ‘up….’”

David Archuleta on Holding Hands
from Disney Dreaming
24 September 2010

OMG, just when you think David Archuleta can’t get ANY cuter he does! In this recent interview you can hear David talk to the audience about how he thinks it’s gross to hold hands and he doesn’t understand why people do it. He says he just got over thinking it was weird to hold his little sister’s hands, but that maybe in the future when he finds the right girl he’ll be up for it. SO adorable! Check it out:

    Thanks Minja for some wonderful information about David! I loved the videos that you included. They show a huge difference in the way David communicates during interviews. I almost rolled over when he turned the question around about the one place that he would go alone…’I have a place in mind and it’s nice’… but he’d keep it a secret. How does he think of these things on the spur!!!!? Oh, I’m not thinking!!! David is awesome!!!
