When it comes to productivity, lots of former Idol contestants could learn a lesson from Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta.
David is releasing more new music while on a two-year mission with his church than you’re likely to get from any other past Idol still in the U.S.
The album will feature a mix of new recorded material and previously unreleased tracks, according to a press release issued today by Entertainment One.
The first single is the title track; it will be released to adult contemporary radio sometime in February, the release says.
David is in South America, serving a two-year mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
He left last spring.
That was just after the release of his Filipino album, “Forevermore.”
And just before departing, he recorded a host of cover songs that made up an album called “Begin.” It was released in June and included one excellent original, “Broken,” which made my list of 10 best Idol songs of 2012.
