Great article/interview  from Vents

~SOURCE~

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.

1. “Postcards in the Sky”

2. “Invincible”

The Postcards Project

October 6, 2017 

Hello to all, but a very special hello to my David Archuleta fan friends on this Friday!

I want to start this post off with an expression of gratitude: I have had such an awesome response from the fan community on the (several!) David-related posts I have shared, and I could not be more thankful. My personal fan experience has had such a strong impact on my life, and sharing that love for an artist with other fans means so, so much to me. So thank you so much for reading and for interacting with me. I hope I get to meet even more of you as we venture to more David events. (And I hope that you enjoy my future David posts, as well as my personal writing! :))

With all that being said, I am so excited to share this new idea with you. I don’t know about you all, but I am feeling so, so blessed that we are just TWO WEEKS away from a new album, Postcards in the Sky, from our favorite singer, and not much further away from seeing him perform this new music live on stage. It feels as though we are in an incredibly positive new era of being David Archuleta fans, and I believe this album is going to be his best yet.

It is this new album and the messages behind it that have inspired me to try and spread a little positivity, and to share that ArchuLove. So, allow me to introduce you to…

THE POSTCARDS PROJECT!

9yYag

Yay!!! (Yes I could have used a David gif, but you gotta love Spongebob—David did!!)

This was a completely random idea that came to me just a couple days ago. Like so many, I am clinging to positivity as much as possible right now, and something that is feeling so incredibly positive to me is the upcoming release of David’s new music and the exciting events that are leading up to and will follow it. So I wanted to do something to spread that positivity, and to keep the love for our favorite artist alive in a community-focused project. Below, you will find all the details on just how we’re planning to do that.

Before the explanation, I have to send a huge shout out to Fans of David! They have been the most incredible supporters of David throughout all these years, and on a personal level, they have been some of the most kind, genuine, friendly people I have had the pleasure to meet and interact with. They were kind enough to help me out with the planning of this project, and they will continue to be involved in the promotion of these ideas, alongside their amazing events and happenings surrounding the new album, so stay tuned for their plans as well. Thank you, FOD, for all you do!!!  (Ed note:  you are too generous and kind, and we love you too Chels ❤❤❤❤❤ )

I am so excited to share this project with you. Let’s get to the explanations, including how you can get involved–because at its core, this project is all about you, the fans!

Postcards: Throughout October and November, fans are encouraged to send postcards to David’s PO Box. Use a postcard from your location, a favorite place, or with an encouraging image or quote. With your note, focus on the album: Why do you love it? What’s your favorite song? How does it impact you? You can also briefly share the significance of the place, image, or quote on your postcard.
-David’s PO Box
David Archuleta,
PO Box 4297
Apopka, FL 32704
USA

Kind Acts: Throughout October and into November, if you donate, volunteer, or perform a random act of kindness, share it with the project hashtag. Feel free to interpret this in your own way–give some time to a community organization, work a local event, donate to a charity assisting with recent world events, buy someone’s morning coffee, what have you! Share what is important to you. Tag David in your post to share your work with him. We all know David is one of the most selfless people out there–he would surely be happy to see his fans spreading the positivity that he inspires.

And there you have it! The Postcards Project is meant to be a celebration, a time of reflection in which we explore these past few years with David, and look forward to what is to come. Postcards in the Sky is undoubtedly going to be such an amazing album, and this project is meant to celebrate it and to encourage the positivity that David has always exuded, and which this album is further portraying.

I hope that you will join us in taking part in The Postcards Project! If you have any questions, please leave a comment or connect with me on social media, links below.

Here’s to David, and here’s to Postcards in the Sky!
