David Archuleta Tells The Story Behind His New Song & Video For 'Up All Night'

David Archuleta just debuted his first video in what feels like forever and it’s pretty amazing to watch.

The singer dropped the visual for “Up All Night” and later explained the true meaning and inspiration behind the song and video.

“Years ago, I was up all night for a different reason because I was lost and confused, wondering where I was going in my life. This family invited me to go out to rural Tennessee, away from everything and go fishing and to just spend time with them outside on their property,” he says.

David adds, “Suddenly, in this simple place, I found myself and I found motivation and inspiration and I found a piece of my identity that I was missing.”

David Archuleta Makes Powerful Return To Music With New Song 'Numb'

David Archuleta has officially returned with a powerful new song called “Numb”.

The former American Idol runner-up spent a few years away from the limelight on a mission with his church.

“It occurred to me that maybe I can actually write about what I’m really going through instead of teenage love songs because that’s what people want to hear,” David shares about his journey with Billboard.

He adds, “That’s kind of how I’ve always been trained. It didn’t occur to me that I could write about what I was actually feeling, and we just started writing and that’s what came out of it.”

While there’s no plans for an EP just yet, David may be releasing more songs in the coming months — yay!

David Archuleta Apologizes After Showing Support for Anti-Gay Beliefs

David Archuleta Apologizes After Showing Support for Anti-Gay Beliefs

David Archuleta has sent an apology to his fans after he echoed some anti-gay beliefs, which some believe were to support the new Indiana law that could have harmful effects to the LGBT community.

The new Indiana law has received widespread backlash as it is seen as a way for people and businesses to discriminate against those they disagree with, especially members of the LGBT community.

David, who came in second on season seven of American Idol, tweeted a quote said by Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quarum of the Twelve Apostles: “Romantic love is incomplete. It is a prelude. Love is nourished by the coming of children, who spring from the fountain of love…expressed between a man and a woman in marriage. #PresPacker.”

Two days later David released an apology on his website. Read it now on JustJared.com
