Orion Artwork Unveiled

The ArchuWorld got a squee-worthy tweet from the Man himself when David unveiled the artwork for his Orion EP. A bold, graphic depiction of  the constellation Orion, the Hunter, drawn by Johannes Hevelius and featured in Uranographia in 1960 (source: Wikimedia Commons

Fans responded on David’s twitter timeline in droves!

Response was overwhelmingly positive! This EP cover-art is a bit of a departure from David’s previous album covers, which typically feature a high def photo of David – front & center! And we usually get a series of awesome pics from the album cover photo shoot.

Like his music and his career, David seems to be forging a new path of his own choosing – can’t wait to see how this is reflected in his new music and on the Orion Tour!

Fan discussion turned to hopes for new merch featuring the new artwork – tees, sweatshirts and hoodies topped the list – so we hope Team Archie is listening, because they need to create the new merch and stock up for the concerts! Miss Bianca suggested we could make the merch ourselves!

Then we started wondering if the artwork had a copyright… another quick google search and we were pleasantly surprised to find that the image David chose for his artwork is actually in the public domain! So hopefully there’ll be lots of new merch at the concerts!

    No comments today? That’s unusual… Anyway hello everyone;)

  2. potluck8 says:

    Hi Alwaysafan and Grammyj,
    It is unusual so few comments. Maybe they are on twitter,
    I hope we get a little something from Friday’s and Easter’s concerts. I’ii take even a picture.

  3. kimk says:

    hi guys!

    Kalei thanks dying to know first if there is a song called Orion and why Orion!

    hmm David likes video games maybe related?

    Grammyj lol yeah just a drizzle.. maybe next week as it is Easter this Sunday Friday is the release of Up All Night!

    • Grammyj says:

      Yep, really looking forward to April 21 to buy and hear “Up All Night”. I still miss David’s Vlogs and Instagram stories. I’m afraid they might be a thing of thing of the past for David. I hope I’m wrong.

      • kimk says:

        ugh.. well I hope his new music is killer

      • Martha says:

        The last two tweets were practically one sentence with a few hashtags. He should follow Amber’s lead and write a book each time. She said he advised her to do that. LOL I would think he would want to sell a good number of copies or downloads but he seems to be working against himself. Maybe someone has his ear advising him. Just sayin’ << my opinion

      • JustJes says:

        I miss them too but I suspect they’ll probably start up again, think of how much he posted during his Christmas tour with Nathan!

  4. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hi all…I’m still here….I am still so intriqued with the title of the new album…..could be related to him “hunting” his new sound???; “hunting” to find himself after the mission; “hunting” for his kind of perfect…..all of the above….or like you said, kimk , about a video game……can’t wait to hear why it is called Orion……….Miss Vicki

    • Grammyj says:

      if he even tells us why he named it Orion. He’s made some announcements about his music and tour but other than that he’s been silent. Hopefully that will change soon. I wonder who would tell him to stay off social media. He really needs to be on it to promote his music career which it appears he now wants.

  5. G says:

    I really don’t think anyone is whispering in his ear, I think it’s his own decision to take a social break, probably figured it would be a good time to take one until the new music comes out. He did posts a long Instagram in Feb explaining why he went on this break, guess no one really read it. It’s a good idea to take a step back and get a better perspective when you get overwhelmed by something, learn how to handle it better so that it doesn’t break you. I know we all miss the things he used to share, but I feel that he will share them again soon when he’s ready, David is going to do what he’s going to do, lots of awesome things coming up and I am very excited for them,

    • Martha says:

      I’m like Dory. Short term memory loss …

      • kimk says:

        lol I forget everything have to right it down keep a list. loved that movie schmuck that I am cried at the end.

        • kimk says:

          oops.. write not right another thing I mess up 🙂

        • Grammyj says:

          Yes, David has written several blogs and an Instagram post about taking social media breaks. This has been a longer one than in the past. I guess that is because he hasn’t had any public appearances since December. It’s his choice to take a break but seems like a bad time since he should be trying promote his new music. Maybe after Easter he will be out there promoting.

        • Martha says:

          He had definitely written longer blogs. I was speaking of the last couple of months when he has been preoccupied. The tweets about his music and appearances have been short. Seems like it should be more tweets leading up to the releases so as to generate interest but what do I know. Like many of us we’ve observed him over the years and though we don’t know him personally, there are many things we do notice. Sometimes after a long life * cough cough* you’ve learned things especially if you’ve had children. If you step into a new season of life, possibly with a significant other, things change. We’ve noticed a few if not insignificant changes in him. The beard, the permission for polls, more adult venues and the album artwork (lol) which departs from his norm. Getting older, yes. But sometimes something else triggers these changes. I’m not being critical of David just commenting on things I’ve noticed, wrong or right. Before it was Jeff, then maybe his mother, now there might be someone else. Of course now he is a grown man who only allows someone to advise him. Chapter 2 next week – just kidding.

  6. MissBianca says:

    I’m wondering why Orion and the other constellations on David’s cover are mirror images of all the other pictures Kalei found.

    • Joanie/suttygal says:

      It’s because Hevelius (the astronomer who drew it) felt he was on the outside of the celestial sphere looking in. He decided to draw it from the perspective of what it would actually look like if he was seeing it from inside the sphere. So what he was seeing through his telescope, he flipped in his depiction (mirror image.) I guess he wanted to show Orion on the inside looking out, not on the outside looking in. 😉

  7. kimk says:

    good morning folks.. anybody know if videos are allowed with the concert he is doing?

  8. kimk says:

    good morning all wishing you all a fabulous Good Friday, weekend.. Easter 🙂

    Harry Styles is on SNL Sat.. Harry seems a pretty likable guy
    SNL Host Jimmy Fallon and Harry Styles Snap to It

    just posted that as there is nothing going on with David.. cute guy figure what the harm
    back to power washing my house today got one side done came out great now onto another side

    what time is the concert in Nashville? hmm wonder if he is still with his sweet gal she will be there too?

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Waving hello! David sure is quite! The free concerts are in churches so doubtful there will be Archugoodies! Hope maybe a pic or two outside! Have FUN pressure washing your house! Going to sand and paint my outside stuff! Can’t believe how rusty my plant stands get!

  9. kimk says:

    looked at Chad’s post there are two concerts?

    • Grammyj says:

      Yes, there are two concerts. One tonight and one on Sunday night at two different locations. I doubt there will be videos but I could be wrong. I think there are rules against videotaping in Mormon places of worship. I hope I’m wrong but I’m not counting on any videos. I hope we at least get a report of the songs he sings. Of course David hasn’t even said a word about it.

  10. kimk says:

    love the back and forth 🙂

  11. G says:

    Kind of felt like you guys are making fun of my post, I just meant David has his reasons for doing things the way he does, and up until a few weeks ago he didn’t have anything to promote. He has shared info about his single, the EP and the tour, so in a way he has started to promote himself, hopefully he will do more of that in the coming months. Back to lurking for awhile, have a good day all.

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Waving hello G! David is definitely his own man, doing things his way and for his reasons. No argument there! Just that this single and EP are his first pop project and full fledged tour! PROMOTION and COMMUNICATION is key to fan support! IMHO.

  12. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! Have a blessed Good Friday. 🙂

    INTERESTING that David takes a social media break right before his single is released? Don’t get it! Wonder if he will mention it or sing it at the TOFW appearance on the 21st?! Free concerts this weekend are in churches so not expecting any Archugoodies! It’s a long wait till June….know then we’ll SEE him! 🙂

    Kalei, as always, your post is AWESOME! Orion’s art work is intriguing! We know there is a reason behind the choice of title and art, with David there’s ALWAYS a STORY! Hope he shares! Maybe he’s waiting until concerts…story time! In any case, at least we have DEFINITE dates to look forward too! 🙂

    ENJOY your day! 🙂

    • kimk says:

      good morning! lol no clue what is going on hope it doesn’t matter for sales and such hope this single coming out speaks for itself and it killer good!!

  13. Grammyj says:

    G, I certainly wasn’t making fun of you!!! Please keep posting. I really like a back and forth in comments with different points of view. It makes it more interesting. I love to discuss David’s music career. Probably too much. It has been fun for me to follow the ups and downs of David’s career. I have been complaining too much lately so it is probably me that should go back to lurking not you. I just want David to have a successful career and to keep singing. I do miss his Vlogs and Insta-stories but if he chooses to not do them so be it. I agree with Martha’s post above. David seems to be in a new season of life and my guess is a girlfriend and he is obviously preoccupied. We shall see how he’s changed when he finally will be singing and speaking publically at the TOFW next Friday (if someone videotapes it).

  14. kimk says:

    Judy hey have fun.. off to TJMaxx for flip flops and books for the gbabies I am off to Seattle next Friday also to look for the OPI nail polish that I have on my toes. my sons gf dragged me to get my nails done was so much fun glad she did 🙂 I love the color it is a bright teal hope I find it such a fun color!

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Must be over the moon EXCITED to see grandbabies again! Just finished their Easter bags, gave up on baskets! Candy and money….teenage dream! lol LOVE my sandals and flip flops! Just bought 2 new pairs! My feet are iN LOVE! lol

  15. kimk says:

    G way I read it it was a reaction to the… ‘guess no one really did’ comment.. way I saw it was snark in return to your remark.
    most of us all have been here from the start we read everything most likely not forget anything. way I saw things thru time folks def have had David’s ear.. wouldn’t be surprised at all if someone new has it now.

    • G says:

      I only meant that sometimes I feel that some just skim his posts, don’t really see what he’s trying to say that’s all. But then again I guess I’M the one that’s alway wrong, I’m leaving for awhile now.

  16. granny lyn says:



    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Waving hello granny lyn! Are you able to get the Up All Night single on Amazon or iTunes? If not I can send it to your email. Got to check and see if I still have it…know I have your address.

      • granny lyn says:

        hi Vabeachjudy
        waving back to you from way across the seas
        No I haven’t been able to get the single and it would be great if you send it to my email address
        I will email you so that you can have my address in case … big hugs xxxx

  17. ray says:

    the way I see it is this, david will not have any spare time when he starts his tour, so right now he is takeing time for himself, and maybe his new firend,he could also be pratcing with the band, new songs and all. as much as we would like we cant have him 24 -7 .

  18. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I was just thinking about Orion. Trying to imagine potential t-shirts, posters and other memorabilia.

  19. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Friday April 14th Free Easter concert in Franklin, TN David and Nathan 7:30 PM
    Sunday April 16th Free Easter concert in Brentwood, TN David and Nathan 7 PM
    Friday April 21st David’s new single “Up All Night” is released”
    Friday April 21st: Millions of fans go nuts over the new song and help it to be number 1 on iTunes.
    Fri and Sat April 21st and 22nd David speaking and performing at Time Out for Women in Anchorage, Alaska.
    Fri and Sat April 28th and 29th David speaking and performing at Time Out for Women in Houston, Texas.
    Fri May 19th: Release of David’s new EP “Orion”.
    Fri May 19th: Millions of fans are delighted about and love the new EP, share it like crazy and it too goes #1 on iTunes.

  20. kimk says:

    aww guys Happy Easter.. I hope that what David has to offer with his new music goes to #1 all over. wouldn’t that be cool.

    will be headed to Seattle 6:30 am flight April 21 so if someone wants to gift me Up All Night on itunes that day that would be cool. find me on twitter dm me and I will dm you my email address and thanks!
    already bought it on Amazon not sure I can download it on my phone though but will when I get home in 10 days.. wonder if a music video will come out too while I am in Seattle. rofl most likely.
    will bring my headphones so I can watch and listen to it.

    as for David being silent at this point right before his new music is to come out
    forget about us ODD fans wanting anything.. we are small potatoes.
    isn’t David selling a product that this is his job what he does for a living? guess if he thinks the music he is to put out soon will sell itself so be it.. it is his responsibility not ours

    • Grammyj says:

      I agree with you, kimk. We ODD fans will know about the single and will buy it. It’s up to David and his team to promote it to his casual fans that don’t follow his every move. Part of the job of the indie artist is to use social media to promote their product. We’ve all had jobs where we liked part of our job but didn’t care for part of it but had to do that part anyway. I’m certainly not counting on initial big sales numbers for David’s single and album. He’s been out of the limelight except for Mormon circles for too long for big sales numbers IMHO.

      • Martha says:

        This is true. Now is not the time for a break if he is releasing music. I work 40 hrs a week, every week, doing all aspects of a job. We don’t get breaks when a big project is coming up. On the contrary. I know the jobs are different, but yet you do what you can to succeed. My goodness, social media is free advertisement! And how long does it take? But silence from him directly? (I’m talking about the last few months, I do remember his every move for the last 9 years lol) Maybe not, but the last couple of tweets and posts could have been from the Team. He has also given up on responding to fans on twitter or IG unless you’re someone in the music business. I’m sure artists don’t like it sometimes but they do it. Thanks Grammyj for your post.

        • Alwaysafan says:

          But isn’t that the definition of a social media break? Not to post or even respond to tweets and comments too? At least he is posting about his music for now, he’ll probably start sharing more before too long I would think.

        • Grammyj says:

          We are just saying that it’s a poor time for a social media break. But it’s his life and his music career. It’s all on him now so if he wants to take a four month social media break so be it. I just hope he isn’t expecting big sales number because he will be disappointed. His ODD fans are even dwindling.

  21. kimk says:

    ray lol 24/7 whateven special folks in Snowflake will get to have him for dinner though lucky them.

  22. kimk says:

    been looking for Orion.. another snippet on itunes Amazon lol dang nothing dying to hear the rest of Up All Night
