Twist magazine editor Jackie caught up with David Archuleta for an interview at the ‘American Idol’ season seven runner-up’s private show at Hard Rock Cafe in New York City. Archuleta talked about ‘A Little Too Not Over You’ coming from personal experiences, painting a fish shaped plate at the last school dance he went to, and advice he has for this season’s ‘Idol’ hopefuls.
“I’m really excited to work on a new album and see where I go with it and if I can come up with any ideas for it,” Archuleta said. “I would definitely like to be more involved with the writing. It would be really cool to see what kind of experiences I have to talk about, to write a song about.”
On ‘Idol’ advice, he said, “Sometimes it can get pretty rough and you think, ‘Oh, I’m not gonna get through this. This is too much for me.’ But you always manage to do it somehow. There were times where I was like, dress rehearsal which is a few hours from the actual show and I was like, ‘I have no idea how I’m going to do this. I’m not ready. I don’t know what’s gonna happen.’ Then I just go for it on the show and say a prayer before I go up and just do my best and it always worked out.”
