When pop singer David Archuleta spoke to the Spokesman-Review in June, he was fresh off reinvigorating writing sessions that made him realize that after years of writing about what other people wanted him to write about, he could finally be himself.
He released the four-song “Orion” EP in May and followed that up with the “Leo” EP in August.
He had plans to complete the trilogy with another EP, but, with more freedom regarding his own music, he was also considering forgoing the final EP for a full album.
And it looks like he did just that, releasing “Postcards in the Sky” in October.
“Postcards in the Sky” features all eight songs from “Orion” and “Leo” as well as eight new tracks. The album brings Archuleta, an “American Idol” runner up in 2008, to the Bing Crosby Theater on Tuesday.
“These songs are about the struggle of finding your own voice and how hard it can be sometimes to believe in yourself,” Archuleta told the Christian Beat in October. “The upcoming album as a whole serves that purpose to get people to look up and for something more, whether that’s looking for God, for a deeper connection to life or finding more of who they are.”
