Ear Candy: David Archuleta — “Senseless”

Earlier this week, a new David Archuleta track hit the internets called, “Senseless.”

Take a listen!

I have to say, I like it! I really dig the r&b vibe meshed with Archie’s voice. I think it suits him really well. I don’t think it would have fit in well with the songs on The Other Side of Down. However, it would have fit in with the mix of music on his self-titled debut. This track actually reminds me of “Desperate,” which was one of my favorite tracks from his first album.

Maybe it’s just me, but I kind of prefer him doing more r&b style music. He has the vocal chops, he would just need a good pop/r&b producer. Not that his producers aren’t great now, I love the songs Eman has worked with David on. I just think that maybe for his third album he should bring back a little bit more of this type of sound.

So what did y’all think of “Senseless”?

Music Teaser & Vlog from David Cook & David Archuleta

Both of the David’s from American Idol season seven put out videos earlier today.

In case you forgot that David Cook did not release his sophomore album during 2010, he released this music teaser today as a reminder.

Check it out!

David Archuleta put out his first vlog of 2011 and remained adorable. He also talked for awhile about how awesome his 2010 was.

Check it out!

Nice to get updates from both the guys!

And how awesome did the short clip of “Paper Heart” sound?

Here’s hoping DCook can get his album out soon and that Archie can keep his New Year’s resolution to vlog more!

David Archuleta Performs “The Other Side of Down” on FOX’s New Year’s Eve Live

Being the nerd that I am, I DVR’d three different New Year’s Eve specials to make sure I didn’t miss any music performances, and a surprise favorite of mine was David Archuleta’s performance on FOX’s New Year’s Eve Live of “The Other Side of Down.”

It was the first time I had heard the song ever, and it’s pretty dang catchy! I really enjoyed watching Archie just own the stage. He has definitely come a long way since his Idol days. I definitely want to check out his live show the next time he rolls into town.

That said, check out his performance below!
