David Archuleta Debuts New Single & Holiday Tour Dates

David Archuleta Debuts New Single & Holiday Tour Dates

The track's music video was directed by Kevin McHale and Justin Thorne.

David Archuleta who made his first major foray into professional musical theater this summer starring as Joseph in the Andrew Lloyd Weber (Phantom of The Opera) and Tim Rice (Beauty and the Beast) musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has released the official video for his latest single, "Faith in Me."

"Faith in Me" is the first taste of new music from David since having vocal cord surgery earlier this year and by far one of his more personal songs to date as he states here,

""Faith In Me" is about escaping and leaving all your worries behind and just going for a new adventure. Not caring about what anyone thinks- letting go and taking off. We actually re-wrote the song to accommodate where I'm at now as we originally began writing it before I came out. In the end, the main objective was to just go forward with someone and not care what anyone thinks. The sentiment is more than a specific stor." says David.

Video directors Kevin McHale and Justin Thorne stated, "We wanted to create an environment for David to perform freely. To evoke that emotional experience when you're alone and excited and there's no one watching. That definitely came out in his performance."

David's 2021 album Therapy Sessions featured an inside look into David's internal struggle with himself - a battle he has experienced for most of his life. "I was going through therapy and trying to apply the steps it took to escape the barriers I had created for myself," he explains.

"Whether it was fear, loss, dwelling on the past, or anxiety. There's a constant battle going on because so much of my mind doesn't want to budge. The songs are a sort of a back and forth within the inner dialogue I have with myself." This new body of work represents a transparency that has not been present in previous releases.

Music has always been healing for me," Archuleta goes on to say. "My mission with it is to heal, and then encourage to move forward after the healing takes place. I want people to find answers to their worries and doubts as they listen to Therapy Sessions ."

In addition, David has announced he will hit the road his "The More The Merrier" Christmas tour beginning November 18 performing many of the seasonal gems from his two holiday releases, Christmas from the Heart & Winter in the Air. Link to purchase tickets HERE.

David will also be featured on award-winning pop-violinst Lindsey Stirling's forthcoming holiday album, Snow Waltz (Oct. 7). David lends his crystalline vocals on the uplifting ballad, "Magic," which was sparked from a profound moment of Stirling's life, when her sisters and mom shared loving and fun memories around her father's passing.
