HaPpY bIrThDaY Jazzy!! #21!
Wishing a very HaPpY 21st birthday to David’s sister Jazzy today!! So happy you are back at home this year to celebrate with your family! And we love the supportive beautiful sibling bond these two show the world! 💖
David’s fun and poetic IG post for his sister~ So sweet and fun!!!
This sister’s full of fun, and today’s she’s turning 21. She got back from her mission this year, and as you can see she toppled over little children dear. She takes selfies on my phone without my knowing, and so to you all some of these selfies I’ll be showing. There’s never a dull moment when she’s around, and she will ride our sister Amber down to the ground. I’m grateful for this insightful and easy-to-talk-to sister of mine. She radiates and her smile certainly shines. I hope you enjoyed my poem. Wish Jazzy a happy birthday everyone! Especially since she is sick today. #sisters #sassy #sister #jazzy
Great article/interview from Vents
Platinum-selling international pop star David Archuleta will release Postcards in the Sky on October 20. This is David’s first full-length project since 2013’s No Matter How Far. Fans can pre-order the16-track LP, here: Postcards In The Sky.
The album — released on Archuleta’s own Archie Music/Tone Tree Music — is one he started on after returning to the public eye following a two-year stint doing volunteer missionary work in Santiago, Chile.
That experience, chronicled in songs like “Numb” and “Spotlight Down,” inspired Archuleta to change his approach to songwriting and go beyond his Top 40 roots.
Here he focuses on honest, heartfelt lyrics that combine the process of self-reflection with the power of pop melodies. “The music is all about saying, ‘Wait a second, why am I doing this in the first place?’ ” Archuleta says, explaining where his head was at when he relocated to Nashville to start writing songs with Music City tunesmiths like former Civil Wars star Joy Williams, longtime Sheryl Crow collaborator Jeff Trott, Jeremy Bose, Trent Dabbs, Katie Herzig, and luminary producers Jeremy Bose, Cason Cooley and Jamie Kenney, among others.
“It was therapeutic working with them,” Archuleta recalls. “I wrote these stories [my career so far]. … That was a great experience and I learned a ton, and now I’m here and I’m like, ‘Wow! I get to create music, but this time I have my own reason to do it.”
Boasting a new sound to wrap itself around the golden-voiced savant’s world-renowned singing, the music on Postcards bursts with a kaleidoscopic fusion of dance-pop hooks (“Up All Night”), lush balladry (“Say Me”) and dreamy synthesizer symphonies (“Postcards in the Sky”).
“These songs are about the struggle of finding your own voice and how hard it can be sometimes to believe in yourself,” the singer explains. Archuleta took inspiration from the constellations for the project.
“The upcoming album as a whole serves that purpose to get people to look up and for something more,” he says, “whether that’s looking for God, for a deeper connection to life or finding more of who they are. I’m a huge believer that looking up will always serve a purpose, and we will move forward more filled and stronger.”
Below is a track listing for Postcards. Lyrics and credits are available upon request. Tour dates — with more announced later this month — follow the tracklist.
