In all, David says he’s written about 20 songs so far for his next album, including a song called Nervous, a love song, and a ballad.
Music is a part of my life, it isn’t my life.
People have different views of life, and I try to respect that. I feel like music has a universal common ground, so I’ve just let the music do the speaking.
From USA Today:
Last week, David Archuleta returned to Nashville to write more songs for his next album. As he did during his last Music City visit in October, he worked with singer/songwriter Joy Williams, even staying at the house of Williams and her husband, Nate Yetton.
“Sometimes, people are like, ‘Nashville, it’s only the country and the ballads,’” David said Friday morning, while sitting at Williams’ breakfast table, eating a bowl of cereal and granola. “They are good at that kind of stuff, but they care about the music. Sometimes people forget that special thing and piece to music that is so important. People get lost in ‘We need the hit’ and ‘We need the hook.’ So much is missing from that that I enjoy about music.”
