David Archuleta was on the phone with Johnjay and Rich of 104.7 KISS FM in Phoenix on Wednesday (October 1). The ‘American Idol’ season seven runner-up talked about keeping busy recording his debut album, staying at Brooke White and her husband Dave’s home with her dad while they’re in Los Angeles working on the CD, what kind of chores he has to do living at home even after he’s an ‘Idol’ celebrity, and more.
Asked about the sound of the album, Archuleta responded, “It’s pretty much pop. I didn’t want to like, just run with a certain idea because I’m still in that mode of teenage life, like where do I want to go in my life and who do I want to be. So I didn’t want to just run with ideas because you know like teenagers can be like, ‘Oh this is what I want to be and this is who I am in life’ and they change their minds in a couple of years. So I didn’t want to limit myself with the kind of much I did and try to keep a good variety on the album. Since we didn’t have a lot of time to concentrate on a certain direction, it’s good to keep a wide variety of songs and a good mixture.”
