Late Friday Updates!

New IG Stories from David!

David explains that their car has broken down and won’t be fixed until tomorrow (Saturday.) While waiting, he shows us a little “Hula” and some cool shades! *note~ David looks great in cool shades but you most likely won’t find him with Maui Jim’s or Ray Bans~ Nope, David is just fine with sunglasses <$10!  (I’m with David on this one!) πŸ˜‰

And via a minuscule “tag” in one of the frames, we learn that Mama Lupe is also with them! πŸ™‚ Watch below and look for “tagged Mom” in the background!

Kalei caught that little Hawaiian Hula Dancer thrown in there! πŸ˜‰

Kalei tweets about David in Canada as he shares a Hawaiian Hula Dancer.

Sunglasses screenshots, we must!

David With a Sweet Tweet for Patty-Ann & Linda!!!

These sweet tweet/responses are few and far between these days! Patty-Ann shared a tweet with David re: her approval of the Leo snippets and David offered thanks to her and Linda!!! (Linda had RT’d the original tweet and me thinks that David, as he follows Linda on twitter, must also see tweets that she has liked along with RT’s 😘. It’s wonderful to have that connection present!!!

Leo !!!! Preorder on Amazon: Setlist and Snippets! YAY!!

The internet erupted with cheers and tweets last evening with the discovery of David’s upcoming Leo Ep (release date 8/25) found posted and available for pre-order on Amazon!!!  Nothing up on iTunes yet but we’ll continue to check and announce when we see it posted! πŸ™‚

Leo EP listed on Amazon Music for pre-order


Seeing the reality of Leo complete with snippets to whet our ears and excitement was wonderful!! As anticipated, “I’m Ready” is there; a lovely song we’ve been introduced to with live performances over the past year, but with much more complexity and layering in the studio 30 second snippet! Then an additional 3 new songs!

“Other Things in Sight”

~ Ohhhh I love love LOVE the groovy vibe of this song!!! ~David’s giving us some great self affirmation lyrics along with just a little- bit- ‘o- sass! Yes sireee! Love it! I’m moving and swaying already!! SO SO GOOD! Along with “Numb,” this song is another collaboration with Trent Dabbs.  πŸ™‚ Remember this twitter exchange from 2014??

YES! TRENT WAS RIGHT!! “THE WORLD HAS TO HEAR IT!!!”

“This-is-not-your life…it’s not your call-to-make-this-time”

“I just want a little more breeze, a little more ease, a little less people I can’t please got other things in sight in mind~

Give me a little more faith- a little more space- a little more room for my mistakes~ got other things in sight in mind~”

“Someone to Love”

“~and I had to learn to love -something had to change” <—not sure I have every word correct in the complete snippet but this line is clear~ Someone to Love is definitely peaking my interest… it seems to be a self enlightening song about growth and what needs to change if one is to move forward and let walls down. 

“I’m Ready”

We’ve heard David perform this song alone at the piano over the past year beginning at Tuacahn. The bridge gets me every time…tugs at my heart as David pleads

“~either way I’ll give it all I’ve got~ cuz I only got one life to live ~ yeah I only got one life to give & I know it’s gonna change the ending ~ I’m ready I’m ready for a change I’m not afraid to lose and leave it all behind~ and I know~ that I can’t see around the bend but if I let you in (I know I’ll be all right.)

And not included int the snippet, but that bridge~ “hold me just a minute~ hold me just a minute won’t you hold me just a minute…”  Now in this 30 second studio snippet there is an additional layering of vocals and more dimension. Wondering if we’ll get that same gripping angst in the bridge with the studio version or maybe even more? Looking forward to hearing it!

“Spotlight Down”

Some of you may remember being introduced to this song in a little snippet that was posted on one of the collaborators Instagram accounts well over a year ago before it was subsequently removed. Isabeau Miller’s if I remember right?

These few lines certainly show raw emotion and honesty… an acknowledgement and a quiet growing strength~

 “~I’m stronger now so turn the spot light down~ I can’t live a life on display watching every move that I make this world’s not a stage it’s been remade~

Seems we’re moving too fast waiting for the curtains to crash I’m standing now”

The more I listen to these snippets, the more I’m feeling that Leo is a great title for this Ep: a display of inner strength, personal growth, and the heart of a lion.

And I have to say that yesterday was the perfect day to receive Leo snippets as it was World Lion Day! Thank you Deb for the heads up on this one!! πŸ™‚ 

tweet from Debz416 re World Lion Day and Leo Ep

The Leo Preorder and Snippet posting on Amazon caused quite the stir on twitter!

Shelley’s daughter is excited, too! 😘

What are your thoughts about the Leo snippets?? Do you have a favorite based on these 30 second gold nuggets? Hopefully the iTunes posting will come soon and we’ll be indulged with those longerrrrrr 1:30 song clips. Until then, we’d love to hear your preliminary thoughts on Leo in the comments!

Road trip to Canada!πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

We haven’t heard from David himself , but his sisters are very good about sharing! 😘 David, Amber, and Jazzy are in Canada! David’s been in Canada a few times recently and I fully expect him to now add more “eh’s” along with his “y’alls” in conversation.  πŸ˜†

 What is the specific purpose of this excursion? Not sure, but my guess would be that David wanted his sisters to see the Sherlock production his friend Denny composed the music for before it closes on August 21! πŸ˜‰ Denny is a guy of many talents; he’s even a chipmunk whisperer it seems! πŸ˜…

Here is a combined IG story vid of Amber and Jazzy’s adventure shares yesterday as they crossed through Browning MT and on into Alberta! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦  Food, flags, and a CUTE CHIPMUNK!! lol

Shanelle captured the lovely “stills” for us! Thank you, Shannelle!

And Kalei had the prize response to their Canada “Waffleton” choice!!🀣

My Heart Is Like The Moon”

Bless Kari for recording this clip of David singing “The Moon Represents My Heart”~a  traditional song (in Mandarin) to share with all of us; she knew how much it would mean to everyone!!

 He’s so completely filled with joy on the stage. So pretty!!

David’s uncanny and amazing ability to so quickly master the dialect, pronunciation, enunciation, memorization, and emotion of other languages while conveying them in song is a rare and beautiful gift!!! How incredibly special it must be for the audience to have David walk onto a (foreign) stage offering his heart and respect singing in their native tongue. That’s David!❀️❀️❀️

Also~Speaking of Super Heroes ~ “SOT!!”

The world is full of degrees of separation and coincidences, and here is another! This summer I’ve been indulging with my kids who are home for the summer, in binge watching some super hero shows on Netflix in the late evening hours! The Flash, Arrow, and Super Girl have all spent some time in my home over the past couple months. Imagine my surprise this morning when compiling a “super hero” post that I found a “Super Hero” upload on YT (sorry I can’t take credit 😘) that uses David Archuleta’s “SOT” as the backdrop!!! Kara (aka Supergirl) and MonEl couldn’t have a better theme song! πŸ˜€πŸ‘

LEO On The OS!!!

With the announcement late last week re: David’s upcoming EP “LEO” release (8/25) <—-THAT’S JUST 18 MORE DAYS, the OS followed suit in showcasing LEO!

Leo EP announced on DavidArchuleta.com

Ohhhh that beautiful denim-almost-periwinkle blue that’s laced on the OS sure looks lovely!! Now let’s get some more tour dates added to his schedule to enhance the LEO

********

Fantastic Fun “Finds”

I’d say this is a most fantastic smile!!!

Poppy Felin Video Blogger mentions David!

This came out a year ago… I don’t remember seeing it Poppy has a sweet shout-out re: David! Thanks Janey for the find! πŸ™‚
*********

As Mary Lou shared last week, we’re going to (at least attempt) to have lighter vacation posts for the next few weeks. That announcement I think may have come before the announcement from David about his upcoming EP Leo release on 8/25. This news along with the potential of receiving Fall Tour News could change that plan (which is really fine by us! 😘) In any case, lighter and fewer or jam packed and frequent, we’ll be here to keep you updated! 

Thanks again so much to Mary Lou, for giving us beautiful celebratory posts for David’s “Crush Anniversary” as well as our FOD birthday celebration last week! And thank all of you for your sweet kind words and continued support! It takes a village and we’re all in this together!! ❀️ β€οΈ β€οΈ
